I just created this for my 5th graders. It may be adapted for other grade levels as well. Enjoy!

Attached is the Word version.

Also, in art that week, I think we are going to use fraction circles downloaded from http://www.superteacherworksheets.co...ioncircles.pdf to create Fraction Art (an idea I saw on PT over the summer!).

If I remember correctly, the teacher had the students use the various fraction circles to create an art project on construction paper and go back and write what fractions they used.

mine is for the week after next as well. We will be doing that during our Math lesson on that Friday, which just so happens to be the day before Spring Break vacation.

This is a really great idea for fractions! We have already done fractions, but its a good idea for reviewing.
