April Trade and Grade with a FREEBIE!

This month I got to work with the fabulous Emily MacGillivary, from Emmy Mac Shop!


I was fortunate to partner up with Emily.  She was such a joy to work with, she taught me all about flattening pictures, and saving secured PDFs!!!  Bloggers are simply the greatest!  I love the kind word and willingness to help.

Moving on to the Trading.... 

Emily sent me her Fraction Bundle.  HoLy CoW!!  This is simply A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!  My kiddos were in love with the games. 

First!!!  I prepped the games!

I am seriously O.C.D.  I love organization.  I make covers for all my games.  The one you see in the picture is Fraction Memory.  I place the directions on the manila envelope and laminate.  Then when I cut out the pieces I put them in the correct envelope.  I file them by math or reading standard, depending on the game.
My school has the most awesome general school aide.  Christine is a gem, she kindly laminates all my games.  Here's the pile of fraction games. 


Fraction Bump Basketball Theme!

I had to do a quick little mini lesson on fractions, since we don't talk about fractions until Topic 16.  Luckily, I was working with some fast learners.

The boys decided to try out Fraction Bump! 
Step one identify number of parts in the basketball. 
Step two identify the number of colored parts.
Step three cover the spot!

 Two parts out of four, covered that with the blue cube!
Let the fun begin!

Fraction Memory!

Once the cards were all prepared we had to lay them out.
Turn two cards over!
Is this the right card?
Look at all those matches!  A great game!

Fraction BANG!!

Pile of cards turned face down!
Three parts out of five!
Two parts out of five!

Fraction Slap It!

Game is laid out and everyone is ready to play!
Hmmmmm.... Is that 4/5?  Nope.....
Refresher on how to say the fraction correctly. 
 Five parts out of five!!  Woot! Woot!
This was the second group playing a hot and heavy game of Fraction Slap It!! 
Kids are completely independent during these games, I can pull small reading groups, and I don't even have to go and problem solve!
Can I just say my kids love,
 love, love these games!!!
What are you waiting for?  Enjoy your FREEBIE!
