5th Grade Fraction Review Using Hands-On Activities and Games

In this multi-day class, we will review fraction skills and child's knowledge of main operations: + - x / (division), identify fraction values, mixed numbers, equivalents, do "hands-on" investigations, create projects, and play games.

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
1.  Each student will keep a record of the "fraction/math" rules we study in class to be reviewed as often as necessary if needed to complete the assigned activities.  This will also serve as a review document to refer back to when needing to clear "the fog".
2.  Learn the basic list of fractions and their equivalents, numerically, in written word form, and show how they arrive at their answer.
3.  Be able to give an explanation of their work, by teaching another person through their explanation.
4.  Students who meet the criteria of understanding the function of fractions being taught will be given some challenge work to work on independently or with a partner as they achieve clarity of basic fractions ( adding, subtracting, showing equivalent fractions, fractions written in words and numbers, written as mixed fractions).
As a former teacher of primary levels in elementary school, I was able to assist students ranging from low, middle, and high evels of proficiency.  

Many students have a basic knowledge of math, but frequently get confused by some of the operations and rules governing numbers, and can benefit from reviewing and strengthening what they feel that they know.  This helps them to identify what knowledge categories they may need to sharpen, and feel more proficient in.  

This class is an excellent opportunity to practice and grow in proficiency with greater confidence.
I strongly suggest that students can spend time reviewing with a study "listener/helper" to reinforce what they have learned during the week.  The class will move on with the strongest group of skills mastered.  If students need additional assistance with review of the basics, that may be addressed with peer-paired practicing or one-to-one tutoring if desired.
1. Daily Journal - to keep records of Fraction Rules 2. If you play an instrument, please bring it, and a copy of your favorite "piece" to share with the class. 3. If you have any "math tools" - fraction tiles, etc., bring them to class on the day we are studying that type of manipulative. 4. Practice worksheets and "make-it-yourself paper manipulatives" will be supplied.
I will be informally assessing students ongoing from the oral pre-evaluation.

Final Informal Assessment
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class would be useful for any students who have been taught fractions at 2nd grade level, up to 5th grade level, and are reasonably clear about "fractions represent parts of collections or groups of things", but are not "confident" of their fraction knowledge.  MUST KNOW BASIC FRACTIONS FROM 2ND GRADE.  It would also be useful for those students who have a working knowledge of numerically written fractions (1/4), but "it is not necessary" that they are proficient in understanding how to manipulate them for use on an "everyday basis".  The review is intended to bring students to a confident level of understanding.  Once they reach a point of proficiency in each area of focus, we will move on or offer a challenge opportunity for further practice.  There is something beneficial here for "most" transitioning learners.
All fraction review study materials will be uploaded daily, the day before the class.
