I grew up playing the game of SPOONS with family and friends. I created this game to help support students learning basic fraction concepts with fun and competitive twist. Keeping only 4 (or 3) cards in their hand at any given time, students work to gather 4 (or 3) cards with he same fraction in the multiple representations. The game is then played like traditional SPOONS.
Interesting twist on fraction bingo. In this game, students color in the quilt design and determine the fraction of each square that is colored in their favorite color. Then they fill out their bingo card with the fractions in simplified form and play bingo.
The Power of NOT Giving the Answer...ever asked the students a question and let them stew on it for DAYS? Come check out today's blog post to see how I worked to REALLY get my students thinking about fractions--not just TELLING them about fractions.
This interactive game makes for great math practice & review, especially with Super Bowl Sunday just around the corner. Complete with NFL music, plays, and penalties- it is sure to be an engaging learning activity! Played in a small group or whole class setting, students work individually, or as a team, to solve multiplication and division math problems. Problems vary from basic equations to higher level thinking story problems. Covers several Common Core State Standards. (CCSS)
