Hi all!

I have FINALLY finished what I think may be my new favorite product on TPT! I love fractions - they can be so hands-on and fun when students understand their functionality!

Here is a little look at my newest project!














PHEW!

Now for the fun part - leave a short comment telling me how you like to teach fractions to your students and your e-mail address!

I will use the random selector to pick a winner {maybe two!}

I am going to pick the winner on Sunday, so that gives everyone plenty of time to enter!

  1. Fractions are still a weakness for our 3rd graders. Last year, we incorporated more hands-on activities, games and technology. Now that we have Gizmo's, I am hoping that will help, too.

  2. This looks great! Fractions always seem like a real challenge for my kiddos. I love finding different activities for them to use when learn about fractions- one of them normally makes it click for them. I love the way you broke it down and I am excited to check it out.

  3. Franctions tend to pose the most problems for our 3rd grade students as well. Hands on activities are always a plus. When the students are able to interact rather than just see it they always seem to understand it better. Thanks for all of your great ideas! siennakv03@gmail.com

  4. I am your newest follower--just found you on Bloglovin'. I have been teaching sped for 11 years and am a FIRM believer in manipulatives. Equiv fractions are the hardest for my kiddos to "see" so I am glad you included those! I teach at a private school so I see Kinders to 8th graders and am overwhelmed some days, but love what I do everyday!

  5. Fractions are still a difficult concept to understand. We use the fraction strip and of course the pizza!

  6. I'm so glad to have bumped into your site because I love it! Your fractions pack covers EVERYTHING and I like how you used different manipulatives. I usually teach fractions with manips including pattern blocks. I think it makes it easier for students to "see" the fractions. One of the most difficult concepts my students have is seeing the fractions on the number line and seeing the connection between fractions greater than one and mixed numbers.
    I look forward to reading more of your posts, especially since I'm a fellow 3rd grade teacher!

  7. I love to use real life examples with my kids when working with fractions. It is such a tough concept for many kids. Your unit looks awesome!

  8. Fractions are one of my favorite units. I tie in literature to teach it. A cute book is Wholey Cow Fractions are Fun.

  9. I definitely have a love/hate relationship with the third grade fractions standards! There is SO much new material for my third graders to learn. I teach the unit using hands on materials as much as I can. For equivalent fractions, I use transparencies [left over from the projector days!] and lay fractions over top of one another. It really helps my kids get it! These materials look great!

  10. I like to do a fraction craft especially for my visual learners. Would love to win this pack!

  11. I really like using real life examples with my kiddos- actually cutting a sandwich in halves and fourths and "sharing" it evenly between 2-4 students has been a hit in the past! (:

  12. Teaching fractions has always been a tough unit, but especially for my lower students.(I am the resource room teacher so I'm teaching students from 1st-8th grade). I use candy (of course they love to eat it when we're done), they each have their own set of fraction pieces (round and bar), and I use my Mimeo board. I also make sure to incorporate fractions anytime I can throughout the year by using real life objects to help them "see" how fractions work in their world. Your new project looks awesome! Thanks for effort and time you took to put it together for all of us teachers who aren't as creative!! =)

  13. This would be perfect for teaching my kiddies fractions! They love love love hands on activities. I taught these students 4th grade last year and I am super excited to teach them 5th this year. I love using cute and creative stuff. I've been following your blog and TPT for a few months now! :-)

  14. I love using concrete ways to make fractions easier for students to understand. Using pattern blocks have been successful for me but I'm always looking for new methods. This would be a great resource!

  15. I never liked fractions as a kid so I can't say I blame the kiddos when they complain or don't get it right away. This year I was introduced to using pattern blocks to help teach fractions. While that worked well for a short period of time (and most regular Ed kiddos) I'm a special Ed teacher and my students had a hard time generalizing the concept outside of using pattern blocks. I'm looking forward to trying another way this year with hopefully more success! Thanks for the opportunity!

  16. I like to use the Marilyn Burns sharing cookie lesson. It's great for higher level thinking and to introduce mixed numbers.

  17. It's almost a year later.....

    Do you still have this? Do you sell it on TPT? I would love to have it, i'll be going into my second year and this first time around, it was pretty difficult to get them to understand.I loved doing the cookie lesson with my students. This package would be great!

  18. Hi! Are these resources still available? I think they would be fantastic for the kids I teach! I teach Maths in English (as a second language) and some of the students struggle to grasp English as well as understanding mathematical concepts. This hands on approach is great ... do let me know :)
    Thank you! Yasmin
