Piece of Cake!

We've been busy learning about fractions in grade 3. I know that my American teacher friends start fractions in grade 1, but here in BC we do things a little bit differently.

We started by watching this video TWICE! The second time around, the students had to jot down what they were learning. I was amazed by how much more they retained just by taking notes on a table mat.

My co-teacher found an amazing little packet of fraction worksheets and a readers' theatre play. She found it here, but I have a feeling it wasn't meant to be posted online...
We also played the Fraction Game and Tic Tac Toe. For Tic Tac Toe, I had the students draw the visual on a mini whiteboard before they were allowed to cover that fraction with a BINGO chip. 
Finally, we made fraction pizzas and fraction puzzles as a formative assessment. Both of these craftivities came from my supplementary basic fractions unit, which is on sale until tomorrow evening. Clicking on the photo will take you to my TpT store.

Fractions: Games, Posters & Craftivities pack includes:
• Fraction Game (two versions) 
• Fraction BINGO
• 8 Tic Tac Toe Boards (with student cards)
• Fraction Posters
• Fraction Pizza Craft
• Fraction Puzzle Craft

What are your "must haves" for teaching fractions in your classroom?
