Linking you to a post for a game I made and shared here before. I don't know the grade level you're looking for, but thought I'd share in case you can use it. http://www.proteacher.net/discussion...d.php?t=319297

Games for fractions can also be found at http://mathlearnnc.sharpschool.com/c...pageId=4993281 but you will have to scroll through the Week by Week Essentials files to find them. They are low prep and free to download and print.

Hope this also helps you out a bit.

Unseen has made some great task cards for fractions. Go to the task card group to find them.

This book has a wonderful assignment called "Fractions of Me". It is easy to write because you have a template to follow, but you have to think about yourself to complete the poem. There are other great assignments as well, but the one on fractions is the best in my opinion.

I am attaching my example I share with my students. Mine rhymes, but they do not have to include rhyme.

I just put together a whole unit on websites - try math dot com and there are brain pops and scholastic jams out there too.

Games
concentration - match equivalent fractions (1/2, 2/4, 3/6)
concentration twist - match 2 fractions that add to 1 - I used some equivalent fractions
Fraction War - multiply first two cards in your hand and lowest pair wins hand
4square - each player gets 6 cards. The rest of the pile goes in the center. First card gets turned over and players try to use 2 or more cards by add/subtract/multiply/divide or order of operations to get to the turned over card. If player can't make the turned over card, they must draw one card and play goes to next player.

I made sets of cards to share with my class of 20 - 5 sets of 36 cards out of index cards cut in half. If I had time I would have laminated to use next year. Hope this helps.

As we get close to returning to school I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas for center activities that have to do with fractions?
