Butterfly fractions for teaching how to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators.UK-Eduacation Experiment Site @ http://www.smartyoungthings.co.uk
Name: Butterfly Method Target Area: Adding and Subtracting Fractions Description: This is an algorithm for teaching addition and subtraction of fractions with unlike denominators. Rather than finding the least common denominator, students will just find a common denominator and need to simplify at the end. For students who struggle to understand the process of adding fractions, this is a good option.

5th Grade Multiplying Fractions Anchor Chart
Favorite part of Math: Fractions
We finished up adding and subtracting fractions right before the break, and now we are hitting multiplying and dividing fractions. We began with multiplying fractions, and we did a mega-anchor chart. I teach 4th grade TAG students, so I am technically teaching them 5th grade standards, but they often need a review of 4th grade standards, so we bundled it all into one. Here is our big multiplying fractions anchor chart! We covered multiplying whole numbers by fractions, multiplying fractions by fractions, and multiplying mixed numbers. Whew! Since part of the common core requires that they use visual area models for multiplying fractions, we had some fun with tracing paper! Each kiddo got two pieces of identical tracing paper and broke it into parts. Then, when you lay them on top of one another, you can see where it forms an area model that is the same as the multiplied denominators, and the overlapping colored sections are your numerator. They loved this! We put them up on the window because you could really see the overlap on the tracing paper when we did it this way. The kids also copied notes into their math journal, and then showed the step by step of the area models. They used tracing paper for this, too, but they showed the steps to get to the final area model. We had so much fun practicing multiplying fractions! (My mountain view was covered in clouds and fog today! I was so bummed.) Finally, we worked on our multiplying fractions task cards. I'm writing a post about them over at Task Card Corner because they are a great example of how I scaffold task cards to differentiate and meet the needs of students. But, here is a sneak peek at them! If you need Multiplying Fractions Task Cards, you can buy them for only $2.25 at my TpT store.

The Backwards Zoro method for finding fractions of a whole number
Classroom Idea, Solving Fraction, Solve Fraction, Teaching Math, Backwards Zorro, Math Ideas, Teaching Fraction, Fraction Trick
This is a great way to teach fractions. It is called the backwards zorro. The students are suppose to draw a line from the bottom number, 4, to the 24. They will find out how many 4 goes into 24 (6 times). They then draw a line from 24 to the 3. They will do 3 times 6 which equals 18. They will draw a line off of the 3 and write 18. This way students were able to find out that 3/4 of 24 was 18.
Are you teaching your kiddos how to solve fraction of a group problems? The Backwards Zorro! It's visual and fun to say and it really seemed to stick in the minds of the kiddos.
The Backwards Zorro. Solving fraction of a group Starting at the bottom, draw a line from the 4 to the 24 (4 goes into 24 six times). Draw the line to the 3 (six times three is 18). Draw the top line and write the answer.
But I would say "How many 4s are in 24?" NOT how many times does 4 GO INTO 24. Numbers cannot GO INTO other numbers. Division is making piles, not disappearing. Are you teaching your kiddos how to solve fraction of a group problems? My co-worker came up with a fabulous name for the tried and true strategy that we probably all use: The Backwards Zorro! It's visual and fun to say and it really seemed to stick in the minds of the kiddos. Here's how it works:

Quick Idea for Practicing Telling Time! Math activity - make a clock on your white board using a hula hoop.
Telling Time- stick a hula hoop to the white board, and write numbers around the inside of the circle to make a clock. You can make little notches around the inside of the hula hoop to practice telling time to the exact minute, if you choose to, but I really like to use this to work with elapsed time. We rarely tell time to the minute when practicing elapsed time, so the prep for this

Fractions, decimals, percents bottle cap game
Middle School Math Madness!
I'm pretty darn excited about my second Made 4 Math Monday post! About a month ago, I watched a presentation in my grad school class about using literacy stations in the younger grades. One of the activities that was shared involved students creating words using water bottle caps that had letters written on them. I immediately started to collect water bottle caps (and had my parents, sister, aunts, uncles, and cousins do the same!). Obviously, I teach middle school math so I wasn't going to use letters on the caps. I wasn't exactly sure how, but I knew I would use them in some way. Fast forward to last week when Hodgesgal posted this on her blog: Fractions, Decimals, and Percents Game. I downloaded the game board and instructions right away. I can't wait to use the game with my 7th graders! We don't get to percents, though, until midyear and I really want to use these bottle caps sooner than that. So, I created a Decimal & Fraction Matching Game to be used during centers. The game is a center activity for students to complete in pairs. Each pair will need 2 game boards, 2 timers, pencils, and scrap paper. Each player will also need a set of 28 water bottle caps: 14 with fractions and 14 with the equivalent decimals already written on them. I've decided that the students will play head-to-head. Each will start their timer and place each matching decimal-fraction pairs on the game board. When a player is satisfied with their answers, he or she will stop their timer. Once both players are finished, they will check each other’s work using the answer keys. Five seconds will be added onto a player’s total time for any incorrect matches. The player with the fastest time wins! I started by making the game board. (I will definitely be laminating them.) Next, I got out my Sharpies and the bottle caps... I made the fraction caps first. Followed by the decimal ones. I also made the matching percent bottle caps (so that they'll already by done when I want to play Hodgesgal's game). I color-coded the bottle caps by type of number. You could also make it more challenging by just using 1 color for all. I bought this container at Michael's a few days ago to store the bottle caps. It was only $0.99 (which I think may have been a mistake) and then I used my teacher's discount! My plan was to have a compartment for each number and to have that number written on the bottom. I think I have to get smaller containers to store each set separately though. I really think my students will like this. They normally love anything that involves a little friendly competition! You can get the game board, directions, and answer key at my Teachers Notebook Store or at my TeachersPayTeachers Store. I plan on making other activities to use with the caps...they are perfect for comparing and ordering rational numbers as well!
I cannot believe that it is September! I mean, where did August go?! July was nice and slow, but August just flew by! Anyway, I did a little work this weekend to help get back into the swing of things. One of the things that I did was create yet another resource for combining like terms. It's a skill that comes up in my first unit with 7th graders, and it's a really important one, so I feel the more resources you have, the better! This puzzle is very similar to my Fraction, Decimal, and Percent Puzzles. There are 21 puzzles, each containing 2 equivalent expressions and a simplified answer. I made sure to use a variety of positive and negative terms so kids can practice adding and subtracting integers while they do this. I also used a combination of two- and three-term expressions. It will be a good center activity and/or game. I created a recording sheet as well as an answer key. I'm hoping my students will enjoy the activity. Here are some pictures: If you like the puzzles, they are available in both my TpT store and my TN store. Enjoy the rest of your Labor Day Weekend!

Now that we are done with geometry, we have moved on to Fractions. Oh, Fractions! Kids come in with the preconceived notion that fractions are Big and Bad and Scary and Hard and Mean. I feel like it's my job to prove them wrong. I am posting a little bit out of order, but I wanted to post our adding and subtracting fractions anchor chart and foldable. The kids copied the anchor chart into their awesome adding and subtracting fractions foldable, a fantastic FREEBIE from 4mulaFun. Click the link to follow her on Pinterest. She's a great pinner to follow. Click HERE to go to her blog and download the foldable for free...all credit goes to her for this awesomeness! I'll be adding our anchor charts and notes pages for all of our fractions concepts soon. In the meantime, if you're looking for fractions resources, I've got 'em at my TpT shop. My favorite right now? All the Fractions Task Cards you could ever want (256 cards, to be exact), all in one bundled package. :) And another awesome resource I use while teaching Fractions is Funny & Fabulous Fraction Stories. They kids can't get enough of these stories, and they are perfect homework activities because it has a review of the concept we covered during the day! *Note: I get nothing in return for mentioning Funny & Fabulous Fraction Stories, and I have not been paid to mention it. It's a book I've had for years and LOVE! If you are looking for even more resources for teaching operations with fractions, stop by my store to see the Ultimate Fraction Operations Resource Bundle!
