A common denominators activity.
In this centre activity, students use ordinary playing cards to review finding common denominators. This helps them develop fluency and flexibility with fractions operations.
Students draw playing cards to create two fractions and then find the common denominator. The number of ‘problems’ they can do is only limited by time!
Engage students in this centre while you pull other students for intervention or tutoring.
This activity includes clear and concise teacher and student directions for independent centre work and conversation starters that give students what they need to have meaningful academic discussions.
