The county switched our curriculum around this year and we are knee deep in fractions right now! I am always so intimidated by fractions before I start... so many big words, numerators, denominators, fractions of a whole, fractions of a set... lots to teach! However, today, as I met with my kids during week two of fractions I noticed they have it! They picked it up pretty quickly and I am hoping its because we've been busy bees playing games in my new fraction unit!
My Fractions Unit is three weeks. We started with a pre-assessment. In week one, we focused solely on fractions of a whole. Here are a few screenshots from week one games:
In Week Two, we are moving onto fractions of a set. They are understanding the link between fractions of a whole and fractions of a set. Many of the games are the same for week two, but fractions of a set. Here are some other ones:
These games have worked out really well in my class. You can purchase them in my TPT Store. If you have a promethean board, buy this pack because in addition to the games, you have a daily mini lesson as well as daily number talks. If you don't have a promethean board, you can buy the PDF version and put the games in your centers.
A post-assessment is included in both sets!
