Click the to see the example first to understand what your work should look like. Tap to being working. Use the 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 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 to type it. 3. Click and use duplicate shapes to show your unit fraction as part of a set. OR, you may share a of a set of objects that show your fraction (think: small candies, legos, coins, etc)! 4. Click 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 menu to help with this. Then, shade in only one section showing your unit fraction. OR, you may want to share a 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 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 or make an audio to share your thinking of how your work makes sense. Tap if you need more time, or click the 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*
