I wanted to stop by and share a few fraction freebies with you all. I love craftivities and always try to make any skill tie into a craft someway or another. There’s just something about seeing a cute craft hanging up that makes your teacher heart smile big.
Each student had to color and write the fraction under each flip. They also had to write if their fractions was halves or fourths on the clovers.
Here are a few fraction craftivities that we made last year. You can find those here.
One of my favorite things to use when teaching fractions is sticky notes. They work like a charm! There are TONS of different shapes, etc that can be used to make different fractions. Here is an example of how we used them to look at equal and unequal pieces.
We also used them to create halves and fourths.
You can read more on how we used sticky notes last year here.
Happy Wednesday friends! I am officially on the countdown for Spring Break!! 2 more days!!
A few years ago I used this Friend-Diagram activity with my students to teach compare and contrast! I always love how they turn out! It’s FREE on the blog and I re-shared it in my Weekly Recap (several weeks ago) on the blog, too! Hope you can use it! Link here 👉 // smittenwithfirstblog.com/weekly-recap-3/... See MoreSee Less
Sticky Tables was a class favorite years ago! It gets kiddos up and moving!! 🤩 It works with multiple subject areas/standards and can also be used for informal assessments! 👍 My last post showed how to use it with skip counting and here I show it used with subitizing/number sense, ABC order, and handwriting practice. See previous post for directions on how to play 💜💜 ... See MoreSee Less
Re-sharing this skip counting number lines activity from years ago! 👉 Skip counting from any given number is such an important skill for our little ones - not just reciting 2,4,6,8,etc! Here's how we did it! Put sticky notes on the table, each student chooses one sticky note to start off with and then they just fill in the boxes using an expo marker on their desk! You could even use washi tape to create the number lines! ... See MoreSee Less
