Falalala Fractions! Nothing makes fractions more fun than all things Christmas! This resource will help keep math fun and festive around the holidays while still meeting the Common Core standards.

This set has been updated as of 12/6/2015 to include printable practice pages (half sheets), updated fonts and clip art, and I Can statements added to each Journal Problem and Practice Page.

About this product:
This resource contains practice problems and resources to support the following Math Common Core Standards for Fractions:

MACC.4.NF.1.1 Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n x a)/( n x b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.

MACC.4.NF.1.2 Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as ½. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, <, or =, and justify the conclusions, e.g. by using a visual fraction model. 

This set includes Christmas-themed Journal Problems and Half Sheet Practice Pages to teach generating equivalent fractions, finding a common denominator, simplest form, and comparing & ordering fractions. The problems are thematic around the things that make us happiest around Christmas: wrapping presents, elves, Santa, his reindeer, and baking!

What this set includes:

*11 Journal Problems (4 on a page)- I used these problems in my 4th grade classroom to glue into their Math Journals. I used some of the problems to teach and some for students to work with a partner depending on the lesson. You could also laminate these and use in small groups or as part of your Math Center for partnership work.

*6 Practice Pages Half Sheet (2 on a page)- These half pages can also be glued into Math Journals or used as a formative assessments. These practice pages are printed two on a page to help save paper as well as minimize grading. You can quickly see whether students have mastered the concept with only a few skill-focused problems on a page. This helps me to see which students have mastered each concept of equivalent fractions and comparisons.

*Falalala Fractions Printable Page- (2 pages to print front and back) This page contains primarily the same problems from the Journal problems. This gives you the option to use the problems like a worksheet instead of a Journal problem. 

*Answer Keys
