1 Hook/Attention Getter

Free to Try, Paid

Spend 10 minutes reviewing fractions using the created popplet.  The popplet will review what fractions are, real life examples, and equivalent fractions.

Review the three sections of the popplet while questioning throughout the review.

-Does anyone remember what a fraction is?

-What are the different parts of a fraction?

-Can anyone think of an additional real-life example that is not listed?

Teachers then give students 10 minutes to play with their fraction cards.  They will match the visual representation to the numerical representation.

Student Instructions

Students will work in a whole group instruction setting to review fractions.  

We are now going to review fractions and the different aspects of fractions that we have been learning about. Please pay attention and answer the questions as we go through the review.

Now that we have reviewed fractions and the different components, please take 10 minutes to work with your elbow partner to match your fraction cards.  You will match the visual representation to the numerical representation.

2 Direct Instruction

Activity: Conversing

Take 15 minutes to review fractions and how to represent equivalent fractions.

Do two examples together and then instruct students to try one on their own on their individual dry erase boards.

Student Instructions

We will now take your fraction cards that you matched and look at some examples of equivalent fractions.

Now that we did two examples together, please take out your dry erase boards and draw two fractions that are equivalent.

Student Instructions

Now that we all have our popplets hanging on the board, let's take a gallery walk to see the different answers that our peers came up with.

On your way out of the class, please post any questions you may have on a post-it note and stick them on the board. We will discuss them during out next period together.
