Product Swap S'more

I'm linking up with Samantha at Ms. Smarty Pants to showcase some great products.  

This week, I am reviewing Fraction Fun with Math and Art by Ms. Fultz's Corner.  My kids LOVED this lesson.  I used this as a culminating activity for our fraction unit.  Since I teach special education, I made a few extra visuals for my kids to help them with the math part.  First, we took all of the shapes that we were going to use, cut them apart, and labeled them.

Since I teach in an Arts Integrated school, I used the following art vocabulary: collage, create, symmetric.   We also talked about choosing colors that are complimentary.  My kids were so excited to create a collage. I gave them the freedom to choose any subject they wanted.  My kids created everything from scenes of everyday life to imaginary animals.

After the kids finished their collages, they added up the fraction pieces.  I really like how Christi set up the student response sheet.  She made it very easy for the kids to add fractions.  Step one was to count up each individual fraction piece.  Then, students figure out how many wholes each set of fraction pieces equaled.  

 This was a super fun lesson.  We all enjoyed this lesson.  It was the perfect culminating activity!  Christi is super generous and is offering a free copy to one lucky person.  Enter below and good luck!
