## Fraction Worksheets

New Fraction Worksheet Packet! This set of fraction worksheets will help your kids practice basic fraction skills.  There are 4 fraction shading sheets (color in fractions such as 7/8, 2/4, 9/10, and so forth) and 4 fraction addition (shading) worksheets (2/5 + 1/5 = ). There are also 2 fraction shape addition pages and 2 fraction shape subtraction pages. I have just added this new packet to the (growing) Addition...

## Fractions Work (4th Grade)

ED has been working steadily on fractions this fall.  I thought I would share what she’s been doing the last few weeks. Be sure to scroll to the bottom for the links to some free math resources. 🙂 Last spring, she quickly and easily went through the Fractions Packet.  It’s a free download here on the blog and you can print the pages with a heart-theme or just plain. 🙂...

## Free Fractions Packet!

Free Equivalent Fractions Packet! (Hearts-Theme or Plain) My daughter is just starting to learn about equivalent fractions… learning that 1 is the same as 2/2, 3/3, etc.  Today I want to share the fractions packet that I first used with my son years ago! ED has done the basics with fractions (shading in fractions and adding fractions with the same denominator), but she is just diving into creating equivalent fractions...

## Free Equivalent Fractions Packet

DD is just starting a new unit on fractions.  I used this packet with LD a couple of years ago and brought it back out to go over with DD. It’s 12 pages and you might only find a couple of pages relevant or useful, but I still thought I’d share them here. The picture collage below gives you an idea of what’s in the packet. You can download the Equivalent...

## Fraction Dominoes Games

For the past couple of weeks, LD has learned about equivalent fractions in math. A week or so ago, I shared a couple of the packet and equivalent fraction cards I had made for him.  We also bought a equivalent fractions dominoes game (and a fraction dominoes game for DD) and now that we’ve had a chance to play it a few times, I thought it was worth a mention...

## Equivalent Fraction Cards (Pokemon Theme)

I made a set of equivalent fraction cards.  LD has to figure out the correct answer and then moves that many spaces on our homemade Fast Track Gameboard. You can download these Equivalent Fraction Cards (pokemon-theme) here. They are free to download. 🙂 We made our own gameboard years ago and still have it tucked in the corner to pull out!  This was an idea I got from the wonderful book, Games for...

## Math: Fractions Unit (Day 2)

We’ve been using the fraction chart and a pencil a lot to look at equivalent fractions.  I have the kids line up the pencil on 1/2  and then ask them what some equivalent fractions are. We also have spent a lot of time building equivalent fractions with our manipulatives.  Again the  fraction table pictured below is from Right Start math (a math curriculum that uses Montessori concepts and hands-on math manipulatives and games),...

## Math: Fractions Unit (Day 1)

About ten days ago we started a new fractions unit in math.  I did these activities and games with both LD (age 8) and DD (age 6).  We did these activities at the beginning of our math time and then the kids went on to do their daily work in their math workbooks.   The kids’ math workbooks both have a chapter on fractions, but I wanted to go a...
