Equivalent Fractions In Your Virtual Classroom
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not spring break … equivalent fractions time!
It’s hard to think of a math concept more important than equivalent fractions for upper elementary school students. It can be a tough concept for kids to understand, especially if they are rushed through a unit or two on it without allowing enough time for exploration… made even more difficult (but not impossible!) this year with virtual and hybrid learning.
I want to share with you a few resources that will help you successfully teach this concept to your virtual classroom students without a lot of additional prep time.
Make It Into A Game
Students tend to be way more interested in concepts if we can make it into a game! They’ll be having so much fun, they won’t realize how much they’re learning!
Here are some great places to find games on this topic:
- Equivalent Fraction Bingo
- Equivalent Fraction Space Game
- & while not technically a “game”, this website offers great online Equivalent Fractions Practice
These are a great thing to add to centers time, also!
Sing About Equivalent Fractions
Manipulatives are one of the most concrete learning methods for this important math concept. Lucky for us, there are so many options for virtual manipulatives!
Speaking of number line … this is such an important piece of learning this math concept, I have a whole other blog post dedicated to this topic! Check it out here!
