The Differentiated Fraction Flashcard Games that I’ve been working on for weeks are finally posted in my TPT Store.
🤷🏼♀️If your students (by chance) are not all learning in the exact same way, on the exact same day- this is for you!
🤯If you are talking about common denominators (again!) and someone just added the denominators... this is for you.
💡Spend some time building conceptual understanding. Meet those kids where they are. John might need the cards with the visual models on them, and Dan might be cool with the bare number cards. Whatever!! They can still play ALL the fraction games. And John might not need the visuals in two weeks.
🤦🏼♀️But if we keep asking him to use that chart 🗃📉📖in his binder to make common denominators instead of building conceptual understanding (AKA addressing the fact that he has no idea WHY denominators matter), then we are not actually helping!
So... 50% off for the first 24 hours- get ‘me while they’re HOT!! ...

Common denominators?? What?
Just a little PSA: It’s not you!! It’s them! Well, not exactly. If you’re teaching fractions now, or will be teaching fractions for months, or are OVER teaching fractions... you might be a fifth grade teacher!😂🤣😂
And it’s a LONG haul. If I’ve learned anything over the past 15 years of teaching fractions (Right? And a few months is rough??!) it’s that all kids WILL develop a stronger fraction sense... if you let them take their time building conceptual understanding. 🥰🌈
👍🏻(No one ever suddenly understood that multi step problem because I gave them a common denominators cheat sheet)👍🏻
💡Not everyone is going to subtract mixed numbers with different denominators while regrouping this year. They’re just not. And if no one else has told you this yet- THAT’S OKAY!!! 🎁It’s fine. If they aren’t ready, why force them to literally move digits around a page while developing a hatred for math and a negative self-concept?
Those same kids might actually compare fractions and justify their comparisons if we let them!! They *might* be able to explain WHY they made common denominators before adding fractions if we let them. 🥳🤩🌈🦄😍🖐🏻
Watch for a few new #differentiated #fraction posts and products in the next few days! Remember, they’ll be 50% off for the first 24 hours! ...
