This year I used two of my favorite activities that I have featured already on my blog and one new activity that I designed this year.
One oldie but goodie is my Musical Mix-Up! This is where I give students name tags with different fractions on the name tag. I play music, we dance around, and when the music stops we pair up. I roll a dice and if its even, the pair adds their fraction “names” together. If I roll an odd number, we subtract the two fractions. This is so much better than a boring worksheet! This year I went big and made actual “Hello my name is…” name tags. The students loved introducing themselves with their “new name”. I also made a recording sheet, which helped to organize their work.

Next, we did a brand new activity I created completely on the chromebook. This activity uses the Google Drive and is an interactive Google Slide project. This was an amazing problem solving opportunity for the kids! Students problem solved math concepts while also learning technology applications and processes. This was rigorous and the students loved working on the technology.
I can’t wait to make more Google projects.
Adding and Subtracting Fractions Unlike Denominators Google Classroom Activity can be found at my TpT store! When you purchase the activity you will get directions on how to share this with your students.
PS: I apologize that the font and links are doing something funky 🙂 I am trying to fix it!
