I liked this pack and found a lot of aspects very useful. There was a good amount of visual clues and reminders. The worksheets were quite helpful but some had an awful lot of similar questions - perhaps increase challenge as pupil works through the worksheet. Maybe differentiate the activities in a clearer way - levels or years. I do wish there were more explicit teaching formats within, for example PowerPoints to aide in the teaching of these complex processes.
Some weeks ago, when I found myself teaching fractions to my maths class (lower ability group, Year 4) and was delighted to see the Fractions Teaching Pack. It was a real godsend! I started off many of the lessons by using the Fractions Guide (narrated by Dr. Fractionstein) to introduce the fractions skill I had chosen for each lesson. After that, I invariably found that the pack had a set of worksheets for practising the skill and, at differentiated levels (very useful, I have quite a wide range of abilities in my class). Then, at the end of the lesson, I could just put the answers on the board for the children to self-assess! These sheets also worked really well for setting differentiated homework.Other resources were very useful as well - I really liked the way the fractions cards and other sheets tied in percentages and decimals, and how the showed fractions both visually and numerically. The follow-me cards and vocabulary cards were very useful as well, and made for great lesson starters.
As a newbie teacher, sometimes thinking back to school days would give me the Fear! I would think back at times when I was being taught and literally hated that moment in time. Was it the teacher or was it my fear of not knowing a subject or getting a question wrong when I was being asked.Thinking back to those days, I recall working from old red maths books. Page after page after page. Its so refreshing to have been able to use this pack both in my Placement at university and in the class. There was a lot of printing in my first few weeks as I printed a pack for each of my students. Fractions can be scary, maybe its why they used the character frankenstein for this pack? However, my kids loved the colourful guides and the worksheets in this pack. It has all you need one place as well as plenty of colourful wall displays should you have the space and budget to print them all. If not now then at some point you may. Children love wall displays, I try to get mine to create their own. Their work ultimately is better on the walls but these packs offer an amazing starting point for you (especially if your time is short) to getting kids engaged with fractions on a fun colourful way.
I really enjoyed using the fractions pack. I used the worksheet in my Maths corner where students take laminated sheets to work on when they have finished their tasks or for that extra practice. They also look very good on my display board. Thank you for hese resources. They really save me time.
I found this pack to be really useful for my year 3 class. It is very visual and allowed them to see the patterns in the fractions clearly. The bookmarks were particularly popular! They were very helpful when the children were ordering fractions.They found the little monster character engaging and the whole pack was very accessible.
This is my favourite and most used pack. I was nervous of teaching fractions but this, particularly the guide helped me. It showed the kids fractions in the context of their world. I have this printed out, laminated and on a ring, the kids and I go back to it all the time to remind us of the vocabulary and ideas. My kids are year 4 (8 and 9 year olds).
I have used the fractions, decimals and percentage packs with my year 4/5/6 class and have found them very helpful. We have a school focus of improving "Maths Vocab" and having the posters up around the room has definitely helped. You are building up a great range of awesome resources. Thanks and keep up the great work.
Thank you so much for this very useful resource. I am teaching in a multi-class setting and found this resource most beneficial. With this resource I was able to teach the topic to the whole class and then differentiate the activities. I found the worksheets very beneficial to assess the pupils immediate understanding of the concept before progressing to other problem solving activities. The worksheets were very clear for pupils in my class who were finding the new concepts difficult. It gave them the opportunity to repeatedly practice the concept. It gave them a real sense of achievement and confidence. Thank you.
I have used a lot of this pack with my Primary 5 class and I was able to use it with all ability levels. The children engaged quickly with Fractionstein, and I found the small cards really useful for paired work.
This pack is a great little resource. It is perfect for covering the various elements of teaching fractions, with plenty of practice sheets to go over concepts. The information sheets are great for children to have for reference to scaffold their learning. The only thing I would change is to have the pack's activities organised in stages to show progression.
