Fractions Tug of War Card Game
Jun
13
2012

This game is designed to give students practice of making equivalent fractions. Players use their highest fraction value cards to lasso the other players’ cards. If another player has the same value, they face off for a round of ‘Tug-of-War’. It contains instructions, other activities, 64 cards, an answer key and black and white cards. This game encourages students to orally read the fraction word name and fraction numeral aloud. Students practice ordering fractions and matching equivalent fractions!


These game cards can also be use as a center activity wherein students match cards according to their value. So the fraction word, fraction numeral and fraction model for each value (and values equivalent to it) can be grouped. Just remove the wild cards!

They can also be used to play the Fraction memory Card Game. Using any-two of the categories e.g. fraction numeral and fraction model only, place each card face down randomly in an array. Students discover which cards match which by turning them over. You can only turn over two cards at a time. Whenever you turnover a pair of matching cards, remove them from the group and continue until all pairs have been matched.

If you need more fraction games, you may be interested to know that this is a part of my Fractions Bundle!

United States Flag ~ Area & Perimeter Practice w/ Answer Key
Jun
13
2012

This product contains 30 area and perimeter questions based on the United States flag. The questions range from basic area and perimeter calculations, to converting back and forth from feet to inches within the questions, and to higher-level, critical thinking questions that will lead students to more deeply analyze their answers. 

I've based the calculations on standard, accepted flag-making specifications.

The final question asks students to design a flag for their school, determine dimensions, divide the flag into parts, and then calculate the area and perimeter for the entire flag as well as its parts.

There is an answer key provided!


Enjoy :)

Hello and welcome to my Making It Teacher Store on Teacher's Notebook!

My name is Michelle Lundy from Making It As A Middle School Teacher {and smiling about it at the end of the day}.


Helping you not only Make It As A Middle School Teacher, but also showing you how to end the day with a smile on your face. :)

I have a B.S. in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in Math and Science; however, I'm certified to teach all content areas in Grades 4 - 8.  I've been teaching for five years.  Four of those years were in Math - one in 8th Grade and three in 7th Grade.  I also taught a half-year of Math Connections to Grades 6 - 8.  I'm currently teaching Science and Social Studies in 7th Grade.

As you can see, I've taught a little of everything.  Hence the broad nature of my store.  I feel as though I have much to share with you in many areas of Middle Grades Education, and I look forward to doing just that!
