Fraction Resources and More: Great to Use in Guided Math Groups

Here is a great math resource.  The sidebar on the left has folders for different topics.  Just open a folder and click the icon down and several resources on that topic will appear. Here is the fraction page.  There are different games and manipulatives to use to practice.  For example, the fraction folder has cards, numberlines and tiles.  Check it out!  These are the types of activities that are aligned with the Math Common Core.  Students should be able to draw their own illustrations of fractions and numberlines. In order to do this, they must have several experiences working with these types of materials.  Have the students use these things to make up story problems as well.  They is a big emphasis in the CCSS on problem solving across the domains.  Students should practice telling stories with visuals, numberlines and manipulatives.  Have the students work on these activities in centers as well as use them when working in small guided math groups.

Happy Mathing,

Dr. Nicki
