Fraction Fun!

Please check out the newest addition to my Teachers Notebook store--"Fractions as Part of the Whole".

I used this activity with my students our last week in school and they LOVED it! It really challenged them and helped me realize how much they understand (or don't understand) about parts and wholes. To complete the activities students will need Cuisenaire rods, pattern blocks and thinkers!

I know it is an odd time to post but hopefully SOMEONE is out there reading this--first three to comment will receive a free copy of the activity!



  1. I think I might be first. Merry Christmas.
    I'd love it!

  2. Hey there, I teach 3rd grade and we just started our fractional studies. I will for sure order this and use it! Thanks!

  3. oh please oh please let me be on the first three!

  4. Boy have my 3rd graders been having a hard time with fractions and fractions to decimals. Your unit looks great!

  5. Thanks for your comments, everyone!! Tanya V. and C.P.--please post your email address so I can send you your copy!

  6. Thanks Janaye. Now I have a reason to invest in Cuisenaire Rods. I already have pattern blocks.

  7. And here I thought for sure I'd get this since it's Christmas Eve! Have a good one. We were just talking about cuisenaire rods the other week.

    I didn't win it, but I am still going to get it!

    I'm on my way to Teacher's Notebook because your products make math fun!

    Merry Christmas!

    (And I am so glad I am not the only person "on the blogs" on Christmas Eve!)
