### Maniac Monday

One of my FAVORITE freebies is a fraction game that goes along with my Grades 1 and 2 Common Core Fraction Unit.  One of my FAVORITE blogs is classroom freebies, so today I have decided to link up with them for Maniac Monday!  It is a great way to pick up some freebies for back to school and check out some amazing teacher blogs.

I love teaching fractions and spent a lot of time this year revamping my units for first and second grade around fraction understandings.  Today I would like to offer you as a freebie one of my favorite games from this unit.  Fourths or Not Fourths is a fun game to practice one of the big ideas of fractions at this level.  If you want to read more about how I use this game in the classroom, head over to this blog post!

Hope your students love this game as much as mine do!  If you want to read more about how I teach fractions to older students check out this post or this one

1. Thank you for the freebie. I need to work on my geometry unit, so I'm sure this will come in handy.

1. Kids certainly can have a lot of misconceptions about fractions!

3. Thanks so much for sharing this! The notion of equal pieces can be very hard for students. This is a terrific way to practice.

Best,
