How about that Super Bowl, huh? Many folks thought Beyonce’s show was responsible for the power outage, but those of us in the know realize it was the giant sale over at TpT! I spent a LOT of time scoping out new clip artists (I’m pretty sure I made that title up…), and I found so many talented people. I’ll be showcasing some of their work on upcoming freebies. Be sure to check out their blogs and stores! The artwork for tonight’s freebie comes from Oxana at Teachers Clipart who, by the way, is from Columbia! How cool is that? Be sure to visit her blog as well.
On to the math subject at hand, which tonight happens to be fractions. Have you ever had this happen? The question asks for students to write the fraction for the part of a cake that’s eaten (unshaded part) and they write the fraction for the part that’s left (shaded part)? Of course you have! And what do we always say–“If they’d only READ the problem…”. Hmmmm, could it be that the only thing we’ve ever asked them to do for fractions is to find the shaded part? A fraction, like any other number, can be decomposed in many ways, and it’s important that students see lots of different representations for fractions. So tonight’s freebie is a scoot game (I’m kinda into those right now…), and it makes kiddos really concentrate on what the question is asking them to find. Click here to grab your copy. As always, I love comments. 🙂
I love this! We can use it tomorrow!
Awesome! That’s the best kind of freebie! 🙂
Looks like fun, but how do you play?
Ha ha! Great questions! I just uploaded a newer version that has the instructions! Clink the link again.
You’re posts are always right on time. We’re just beginning our unit on fractions tomorrow. This will be a great way to get the kiddos up and moving!
That’s my motto, Cheryl…On time with good math! Ha ha. 🙂
This is awesome. Plan to use it soon! 🙂
Glad to hear it, Cindy! 🙂
YES! My students need practice READING what the problem actually says! lol, thank you!
Don’t they all… 🙂
Yea! We’re just getting ready for fractions.

What a sweet compliment! Thanks so much, Louise! 🙂
I so enjoy reading your blog. Thank you for sharing!
So nice to hear! Thanks! 🙂
I clicked “here” and nothing comes up
Hmmm, did you get some kind of error message? I just clicked on it, and it took me right to the Google doc. Maybe try again. Sometimes Google docs can be a little squirrely!
This is the best game!!!! My 3rd graders will love it to review before our test on fractions. Thank you!!! 🙂
You’re so welcome! Hope the kiddos enjoy it. 🙂
This game/activity will be great to review for the state benchmark practice. Thanks, I will be using this right after spring break.
Glad the timing worked out so well for you, Hazel! 🙂
Thank you so much! Our 3rd graders are just starting a unit on fractions so this resource should come in real handy!
Glad to hear it’s something you can use, Cindy! 🙂
Thank you! We’re learning about fractions right now, and this year’s group LOVES scoot! This is absolutely perfect. Much appreciated! <3
Awesome! I hope the kiddos enjoy it and come away with a better understanding of fractions! 🙂
As a teacher new to 3rd grade ans new to the common core but not new to teaching, I thank you for all your wonderful ideas, freebies and advice! They have helped me through a long, difficult year.
All my best,

Great review of fractions, following directions, and carefully reading the question! Thanks!
