Fractions

Is it just me or does it seem like this week is NEVER going to end?!  I feel like the Valentine's Party was last week, but OH NO, that was only 2 days ago!  Needless to say, I am more than ready for this weekend!

But before I veg out all weekend, I wanted to post a few pictures of what we've been up to in class.  

We made fraction sundaes that you can find on TPT HERE!



Tomorrow we will make fraction pizzas that you can find on TPT HERE!



Next week we will be using A LOT of The Teacher Wife's Fraction Fun Unit, and also this fun little fraction book that I made!  




We are only going to go to 1/6 on our fraction book, but in the template I made, you can go all the way to 1/16!  I wanted it to be versatile so several grades could use it.


I have also included templates where the fractions are already typed, and the students just put their books together!


Happy Almost Friday!  Hope your Friday goes by quickly and your weekend does just the opposite!
