Exercise your students’ critical thinking
through FOREST FRIENDS VOCABULARY FRACTIONS
task cards. The challenge is to create forest terminology using fractional parts of words. This product is CCSS aligned for grades 3 and 4. However, it will be applicable to high performing second graders, as well. Fifth graders, too, will enjoy the challenge.
The task gradually increases in difficulty, transitioning from 2 part clues with pictures and words to 3 part clues with fractional parts from the middle or end of a word. Solving equivalent fractions provides even more challenge. I strongly advise solving several of these tasks together, “thinking out loud” to model the problem solving required.
20 VOCABULARY FRACTIONS task cards
are included in this set. You may be interested in starting with the easier task cards provided in set 1

In consideration of your printing costs, grayscale cards are also supplied. I recommend printing the grayscale set on colored cardstock to make them more appealing. Additionally, you will find labels for your center folder, a recording sheet master, and an answer key.
