Adding and Subtracting Fractions Using the Four-Square Method
When I first started teaching adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators to my fifth graders, I quickly realized that they needed some concrete step-by-step directions. They also needed a way to organize their work. I racked my brain for a little while before coming up with this graphic organizer. My students love it, and they never confuse the steps again!
Twitter exit cards -- Today's Teaching Tweet. Students put their names in the form of @____ and then below that they write what they learned from today's lesson. Lastly, they #hashtag a "trending topic."
Freebie: One page sample (plus a key and teacher notes). Great higher level thinking skills to use with the whole class during transitions (no printing needed). Perfect for fast finishers and oh so nice to have on hand for a sub.
