Words Made With Fraction Sense

DIRECTIONS: As manipulatives, use the small sticky notes on the
desks. Write each letter of the given word on a note and move them
around, as needed. Use your fraction skills and the clues to figure
out the words.
            • Start with the first 1/6 of “school”.
            • Add the last 3/4 of “know”.

            • Add the first 2/3 of “fly”.
            • Add the last 4/8 of “cupcakes”.

Spring Blossom Tree Trace your arm and use colored pop corn to make this
neat tree full of blossoms.
Materials Needed:

Large Piece of Paper
Crayons
Glue
Powdered Tempera Paint
Plastic Sandwich Bag
Popcorn
Instructions:
On the large piece of paper, trace your hand and forearm all the way up to your
elbow. Make sure your fingers are spread apart. The tracing of your forearm will be
the tree trunk and your fingers will be the branches! Color it in with brown crayons
(you can also use paint or markers).
Place a couple or teaspoons of red, pink, or yellow powdered tempera paint into a
plastic sndwich bags. Put a couple of handfulls of popped popcorn into the bags and
shake it so the popcorn is colored. This will be colorful blossoms for the tree.
Read the following Springtime story and glue the “blossoms” as directed.
Glue the colored popcorn onto the tree branches to make the blossoms.
The blossoms and leaves have just begun to sprout on the
spring trees. But the spring wind often blows the new blossoms
and leaves to the ground.
This tree has more blossoms on the tree than on the ground. If
6 are on the tree and 3 on the ground what fraction are on the
tree? _________________
What fractional part are on the ground? _______________
Glue the correct number of blossoms where they belong.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
There are lots of little green leaves. One-fourth of them are on
the ground.
What fraction of the leaves are on the tree? ____________
If there are 12 leaves all together, how many are on the
ground_______________?
How many are on the tree? ______________
Glue the correct number of leaves where they belong.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Butterflies love the new little blossoms. There are three
butterflies flying by the tree. Two-thirds of them land on the
tree. How many are on the tree? ____________
The remaining land on the ground. What fractional part of the
butterflies are not on the tree? _____________
Glue the correct number of butterflies where they belong.
