Fractions Pinterest Style and a Freebie!

I am loving this Christmas Break! Sleeping in, sitting with my laptop and a warm cup of coffee,  blog stalking, and actually having time to create new things!

When I see my third graders (which I have to admit I miss over this break) we are going to start our unit on fractions.  Fractions has always been hard for my kiddos (and me), so luckily I have Pinterest to help me with that.  Here are some ideas I have already gotten that I want to adjust or use during our unit.

Sidenote:  Man, have I mentioned how much I LOVE Pinterest? I don't think I can talk about it enough! Not only do I get these awesome ideas, but it hooks me up with finding all of these AWESOME blogs!

Well, with all this free time that I have, I also created a Snowman Equivalent Fraction Game to use during my guided math time.  The students will match the equivalent snowflakes to the correct snowman.  It uses the   fractions 1/2, 1/4, 1/3 and 3/4.  I am going to have the game FREE on TpT until December 31st!  So if you want it, you better download it fast!  :) If you download it, follow my blog or TpT Store and leave a comment! Let me know what you think and how it works out with your students!



  1. downloaded your freebie! i probably won't get to fractions until late february-ish, so i'll let you know how it goes then!

  4. Thanks! Can't wait to give it all a try....equivalent fractions are the pits for 3rd graders...

    Anyone know how to get pintrest at school? I have so many school/teacher things pinned on there and my district blocks me out of pintrest!

    Thanks again! Michelle

  5. Michelle, make sure you check out my post today about my posters! That stinks about Pinterest, its not blocked at our school...yet!

  6. Even though I teach 4th and they should know these, it will make for a great quick review as we start back in January.

    Thanks for sharing!
