Frayer Model for Unit Fractions

Click the link to see the example first to understand what your work should look like. Tap add to being working. Use the audio buttons to remind you what to do. 1. Choose a unit fraction like 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/6, or 1/8 and label type it in the center circle under My Fraction. *Remember: a unit fraction is any fraction with 1 as the numerator. The denominator is the number of total parts. The dividing line between them stands for the phrase, "out of." 2. Show that same unit fraction written with just letters using label to type it. 3. Click 3dots and use shapes duplicate shapes to show your unit fraction as part of a set. OR, you may upload share a photo of a set of objects that show your fraction (think: small candies, legos, coins, etc)! 4. Click 3dots and use only one, BIG shape in the 4th box. Squares, rectangles, or circles work easiest. Divide your big shape into equal, fair-share parts. You may want to duplicate a straight line from the 3dots shapes menu to help with this. Then, shade in only one section showing your unit fraction. OR, you may want to upload share a photo showing one whole divided into equal parts matching your fraction (think: a pizza, a brownie pan, a folded piece of paper, etc.)! 5. Finally, use small pen glowpen dots to mark the denominator of your unit fraction as part of a number line. Make sure the dots are equal distance apart to be fair shares; the first two dots should be a different color representing your unit fraction, like the one in the example. You may use the mic or make an audio audio to share your thinking of how your work makes sense. Tap draft if you need more time, or click the check to share your best work with your teacher and family.

A. Jimerson @Super2ndsMrsJ #SeesawAmbassador I created this template using a Google Slide. This activity is meant for unit fractions as a beginning lesson for elementary students, but you can easily modify it (and all the audios) if you just want to use this response model for ANY fractions! You could also add a direction asking students to record their thinking as a final step. Enjoy. *Please do not resubmit this to the Community/District Libraries*
