Fractions – traditionally hard to teach and harder to learn – but not with TeachTransform’s Grade 4 Master Fractions. In whole group and small group instruction as well as centers, students model and draw fractions and mixed numbers, then explain to understand them. They model equivalence and generate equivalent fractions. They use multiple methods to compare fractions. They connect composing and decomposing to addition and subtraction. They journal to justify their thinking. Perfect for guided math.
Lots of centers, silly characters and contexts keep students interested and develop problem solving grit.
This book includes activities for the whole class, small groups, centers, intervention, and guided math that build the academic language of fractions.
Grade 4 Master Fractions also includes formative assessment that builds from simple questions to more sophisticated thinking so you can see where students’ understanding breaks down and plan targeted support.
Each activity includes:
- Setting Up for Instruction
- How-To Guide with full teacher directions including questions
- Thought Extender Questions to help students get ‘unstuck’ and focus on the math concepts
- Answer Key
- Content explanations to deepen teacher understanding of fraction concepts
- Instruction extras to support implementation of instructional strategies
Tutoring & Intervention
Grade 4 Master Fractions activities can be used for Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 instruction in 4th grade. The activities can also be used to catch 5th graders up and fill in gaps without loss of rigor or time. For 5th graders struggling with adding fractions (½ + ½ = ¼?), back up using Wild, Wild West or The Great Salamander Circus to set a solid foundation.
Instructional Alignment from Grades 3–8
Not only is the content aligned among the grades, but the instructional strategies are too. For students who are “growing up” with TeachTransform’s instructional materials, you can expect them, with a little prompting, to give an answer that includes a why, to use sentences to explain their thinking, to question each other in small groups. This lightens the instructional and cognitive load in each grade and leads to mastery.
