Exit Tickets for Math – 3rd Grade Fractions

Are you looking for a quick and easy way to assess your students’ understanding of different fraction concepts? This downloadable resource covers different standards that are addressed in third grade. Teachers can choose to use the same exit ticket for all of the students in the class as a formative assessment or different tickets can be used to assess students at different stages in their learning journey.

This set of exit tickets comes with 24 different options (each labeled with a letter in the upper right-hand corner). The skills presented in the exit tickets cover the following:

  • Identifying fractions on a number line
  • Identifying a fraction of a shape
  • Plotting fractions on a number line
  • Drawing models to represent a fraction
  • Fractions of a set
  • Partitioning shapes
  • Equivalent fractions with and without models

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your math lessons. 

Use this set of exit tickets to assess a wide range of skills associated with basic fractions.

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

If there are students who need support, invite them to reference anchor charts or posters reminding them of different fraction concepts.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

For students who need an additional challenge. Encourage them to create additional equivalent fractions, show the same fraction represented in multiple ways, or create basic addition or subtraction statements with a given fraction.
