The post FREE Worksheets for Adding Fractions With Unlike Denominators on a Number Line appeared first on You've Got This Math.

]]>Adding fractions can be a challenge, but we can help our kiddos understand what they are doing and be successful by offering them visual help.

Before we talk about how to add fractions on a number line, let’s clear up one quick question many people ask. Why teach them this way.? It is so time consuming. If I just teach them to change the denominators and add, it will be much quicker.

Yes, that is true. And our goal is to get there. But have you ever had a student add 1/2 + 1/3 and say it was 2/6. Then you know how important it is to model adding fraction using models and number lines.

After the concept is understood then you can move on to teaching the formula and let your kiddos solve that way.

*You can get my whole bundle to practice adding and subtracting*

If children have a good understanding of fractions, this will come quite easy for them. The biggest concept to get across is that we NEVER add the denominators together. Though this seems odd to some children, once they play with fractions and model them, it can begin to make sense.

In this example, the students are asked to add 1/3 and 1/3. We begin by looking at our denominators and creating a number line using that. (For more info on how to do that, check out this post.)

Once we have labeled our the number line, we can add. Starting at zero we move up 1/3 which is one space, and then another 1/3 which is one more jump. We’ve landed on 2/3 and that is our answer.

Life gets a little more complicated here. Because we have to demonstrate Least Common Multiples on the number line.

*If you want your children to see step by step instructions on how to do this, this interactive notebook will help. *

If we are adding 1/2 + 1/3 we begin by looking at the two denominators and finding the least common multiple. We do this by listing the multiples of each number until you find the one they have in common.

2: 2, 4, 6

3: 3, 6

Six is our least common multiple!

Now we are going to create a number line using the LCM as the number of spaces between the 0 and the 1. Since our LCM was 6, there will be six spaces between my 0 and 1. After we create the number line, we go in and label each interval with fractions using the LCM as the denominator. Finally, we label equivalent fractions.

Our last step is to add. By looking at my equivalent fractions I see that 1/2 = 3/6…..so I will move up three spaces. Now I can see that 1/3 is equivalent to 2/6, and this lets me know to move up two more spaces.

I’ve landed on 5/6, and that is my answer.

As we help children draw number lines, label them with equivalent fractions, and then add we are developing a fraction sense. This understanding may even allow children to perform simple addition and subtraction of fractions in their head. And that is even faster than sitting down and solving a formula!

]]>The post FREE Fine Motor Skills Number Recognition Activity appeared first on You've Got This Math.

]]>My little girl struggles with learning. Developmental stuff just does not come easy for her. Walking, crawling, and talking were skills that were highly celebrated when she finally conquered them. Right now, her Special Ed teacher and I are working hard to help her develop her fine motor skills and begin to recognize and name her letters and numbers.

So this is where this number recognition activity came from. She gets to work on strengthing the muscles in her hand while counting out clothespins that represent the number in front of her. She LOVES it, and I’m loving all the skills involved.

With just a little cutting this activity is ready to go.

- First, print off the numbers on card stock paper.
- Next, cut and then laminate.
- Finally, gather up at least nine clothespins.

As easy as these are to make, they are that easy to use.

- First, hand a number to your child.
- Next, ask them what number it is.
- Either confirm or gently say the right answer. Then have them correctly trace the number with their finger saying the name of the number as they do it. For correct number formation, check out these pages by The Measured Mom.
- Now, have them count out the correct number of clothespins.
- After they have counted out the correct number, and them place the clothespins on the number.
- Finally, count the clothespins and say the name of the number one more time.

It is that easy!!!!

My little girl’s twin brother does not have the same struggles. He already recognizes his numbers and counting out that many is a breeze for him. But he likes to join in the activities too.

Lately, he has been into adding, and of course, while we were sitting there he asks, “What does 2 + 3 equal?”

I honestly had not intended the numbers to be used this way, but you never turn down a learning opportunity, right?

“Count all the dots on the two and three,” I told him.

His sweet voice counted away and in a few seconds he triumphantly shouted, “five!!!”

“Yes, that is correct. 2 + 3 = 5.”

Got to love spur of the moment learning!!!!

I hope you enjoy these numbers as much as we have!!

]]>The post FREE No-Prep Adding and Subtracting Decimal Game appeared first on You've Got This Math.

]]>Adding and subtracting decimals can be a hard concept to conquer. Numbers must be lined up using a decimal, and children need to understand what tenths and hundredths are.

Though it may be difficult, this concept is an essential one and that is why Math Geek Mama and I are teaming up to bring you a series about adding and subtracting decimals.

The first one was all about modeling using base ten blocks, and today I’m providing a game to further this practice.

So after you have taught how to use base ten blocks to add and subtract, jump into this fun, engaging adding and subtracting decimal game for some extra practice.

There is almost no-prep work for this adding and subtracting decimal game.

- Print off the game board and record sheet on card stock paper.
- Place the recording sheet in a sheet protector
- Gather up base ten blocks, a die, game pieces, and dry erase markers.

Clipco Dry Erase Pocket Sleeves Assorted Colors (12-Pack)Teacher Created Resources Foam Base Ten Set (20617)

As simple as this game is to set up, it is that easy to play.

- First, players roll the die and move that many spaces.
- Next, they look at the space they landed on and either add or subtract.
- Once they have performed that operation with the base ten blocks, they write what they did on the record sheet.
- When both players get to the end, the player with the most base ten blocks wins!

(If a player runs out of base ten blocks, nothing happens. Each time it is their turn, they roll and move. It they land on an addition space, they add that number to the mat. If they land on a subtraction space, they remain at zero and try again on their next turn.)

Here’s an example of what one turn may look like.

The player has been moving around the board and already has 1.27 and now she has landed on a space that tells her to add .34.

The player begins by getting at three long (3 tenths) and 4 cubes (4 hundredths).

Next, she adds the cubes to the hundredths pile and the longs to the tenths column. Notice that she now has 11 cubes, and we know that only nine can be in each space.

It is time for an exchange. We know that 10 cubes equal 1 long. So she takes out 10 hundredths and places 1 tenth in the tenths column. Since there are only six tenths in the column, she is done and it is time to record her answer.

The player started at 1.27 and she added .34. After she had done some exchanging she had one whole, six tenths, and one hundredth. So her expression is 1.27 + .34 and the answer is 1.61!

I hope your children enjoy this game!

]]>The post Practice Addition and Subtraction Of Decimals With This Hands-On Activity appeared first on You've Got This Math.

]]>Adding and subtracting with decimals can be hard for some kiddos. Children need to understand decimals and place value to be truly successful at this new concept.

So that is why I’m so excited to be teaming up with Math Geek Mama to dive deep into this subject. We will be exploring numerous ways to help children develop an understanding of decimals while adding and subtracting!

The first stop in our series is base ten blocks!

Base ten blocks are a wonderful way to teach adding and subtracting regular numbers. Once that knowledge is formed it is easy to take the same concept and move it into decimals…..just the value of the base ten blocks change.

This addition and subtraction of decimals activity only goes to the hundredths, so we will make the smallest base ten blocks, the cube, our hundredths. This means that the long, is our tenth. And the cube will represent our ones place.

This activity is simple to set up, and can be used over and over.

- First, print off the mat, expression page and numbers.
- Next, cut the numbers out.
- Finally, gather up those base ten blocks!

Now it time to add and subtract.

Teacher Created Resources Foam Base Ten Set (20617)

To begin the activity, have your kiddo draw six numbers and place them on the expression mat. Then of course, we start by getting out our base ten blocks and placing them on the mat. In this example, we are adding 3.22 + 5.94, so we have to get out 3.21.

We have three ones, so we place three base ten blocks on the mat.

Then, we see that there are two tenths, so two longs go in the tenths place.

Finally, we add two hundredths, two cubes, into the hundredths place.

So this part is simple. We begin adding base ten blocks. We begin by adding four hundredths to the hundredths place, and voila we have five hundredths.

Now we move unto the tenths place. Looking at the problem we see that we need to add nine-tenths so now we have 11 tenths….and this is not Ok.

We need to do a little switching out, and this is very simple. All we have to do is take out 10 longs and place a flat in the ones place.

All that is left is to add five ones or flats to the mats and then figure out how many blocks are in each place value.

We have nine flats, one long, and five cubes so my answer is 9.15!

Subtracting always seems to be a little harder, but when we introduce with base ten blocks….we build number sense that will help children be successful with these difficult concepts.

Just like always we start by looking at the first number in the expression and getting that number out on the mat. So we take out five flats, four longs, and three tenths.

Our next step is to subtract nine hundredths, but there are only three hundredths, so some regrouping is needed. We simply do this by taking a long off the mat and then replacing that long with 10 cubes. And we add those 10 cubes to the hundredths. NOW, we can subtract nine hundredths, and we end up with four hundredths.

Our next step is to take away two tenths. This time it is easy because we have three tenths, so three minus two-tenths is one tenth.

Finally, we move onto our ones. All we need to do here is take away one flat from the one’s place!

Answer time.

After we have subtracted from each place value, there is only one step left….see what is left.

And, as you can see there are four ones, one-tenth, and four hundredths. So my answer is 4.14!!

Practicing addition and subtraction of decimals is essential, and when we add base ten blocks it helps children to visualize and understand decimals better!!!

]]>The post FREE Hands-on Adding 10 Game Using Base Ten Blocks appeared first on You've Got This Math.

]]>Adding and subtracting by 10’s is important work. It builds place value sense and paves the way for metal math even when adding two two-digit numbers.

I have spent a lot of time working on this with my two oldest. My favorite way to teach this is by using the hundreds chart. Whether they are solving number puzzles or solving addition and subtraction problems, the hundreds chart is an easy way to see what happens when we add or subtract 10.

*(We simply move up or down, and the number in the tens place does not change)*

Today though, we are moving beyond the hundreds chart to using base ten blocks. And we are going to explore this new method of adding and subtracting by 10 through an adding 10 game.

- First, print off game board, record sheet, and base ten blocks if you need them.
- Next, laminate the recording sheet or place in a sheet protector.
- Finally, gather up game markers, dry erase markers, a die, and base ten blocks.

The game begins with the children gathering up 30 tens or 3 longs.

Once this is done, player one rolls and moves up that many spaces. The player then adds or subtracts base ten blocks based on what the square says. They then write an equation on their record sheet to show what they did.

For example, the player had 12 and then rolled an add 10. First, they would add 1 long. Now they can see that they have 22.

Next they write down what they did. 12 + 10 = 22

Players take turns rolling, adding and subtracting, and writing equations until both players reach the end.

The player with the largest number wins.

This adding 10 game is a simple way for kiddos to practice this important skill! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

]]>The post FREE Printable For Rounding Numbers to the Nearest Thousand With Visual appeared first on You've Got This Math.

]]>Rounding. It can be a difficult concept for our little ones. They have to find the correct digit using place value, and then determine if they should round up or keep the number the same. And then they have to change digits to zero. There are a lot of steps which can confuse our struggling mathematicians. Using a hundred chart is a great way to introduce rounding, and help children see what is actually happening when rounding numbers to the nearest thousand.

*If your kiddos like using the hundreds chart when rounding, then you can get the other rounding posts here.*

- First, print off hundreds chart
- Next, print off clip cards and cut out.
- Finally, gather up clothespins.

Home-X Wooden Clothespins. Set of 50.

Now it is rounding time!

- To start the children look at the number on the clip card and find where it will be located on the hundreds chart.
- Next, they use colors on the chart to help them figure out if they should round up or keep the thousands place the same.
- Finally, they clip the answer on the card that matches the dark pink or dark blue on the chart.

In this example, the number is 7,876. Since we use the hundreds place to help us know what to do, that is the place we have to find on the chart. We move down to the seven thousand place, and then over to the 800’s place. Now it is easy to see that 7,876 should be rounded up to 8,000.

In the next example, the number is 11,297. We begin by moving down to 11,000 and then over to 11,200. We notice that we are in the light pink colors so our answer will be in dark pink….11,000.

These clip cards with a visual make rounding easy and helps children visual why we round up or stay the same.

]]>The post Free Build Your Own Animal and Plant Cell Worksheet appeared first on You've Got This Math.

]]>It is life science time! We are working on learning about the kingdoms of living things, vertebrates, seeds, photosynthesis, and much more.

But today my kiddos are focusing on learning about plant and animal cells.

A lot of our schooling focuses on memory work. Even my four-year-olds are working on memorizing large amounts of material, which in later years will be the basis for much deeper work.

Songs work for us, and so our first step is to find or make up a song that will help us remember the parts of each cell. Then comes time for a little reading.

There are so many books out there that grow my little knowledge and help them build their science vocabulary. And this simple way of learning works for our family!

Christina Examines Plant Cells and Animal Cells (Science Alliance)Powerful Plant Cells (Microquests)Animal Cells (Genetics)

After some memorizing and reading it is time to explore and put our new knowledge to use. Our first activity is to create a cell on paper, but we will be making it out of food later on!! We like to eat!

These printables are simple, and you can get them in black and white or color.

- First, print off the pages you want to use on regular paper. You may not want to use the definitions if you just want your little one to know the parts of the cell.
- Next, provide either books or a website like this so children can see a cell, build it, and find the definitions that match.
- Finally, gather up scissors, glue, and crayons!

Begin by placing the animal cell and plant cell in front of your students. Then give them the parts of the cells with the pictures.

The students will cut out the picture and name. The picture goes into the cell and the word on the outside. Then they draw a line from the picture to the word.

Once they are done with that, they can use the next page to add on the definitions.

The last step is to compare the two cells. Ask your little ones to figure out the similarities and difference between the cells.

They can simply point out that both cells have cell membranes and nucleus. And they may tell you that a plant cell’s vacuole holds water, while the animal cell holds waste. The plant cell also has a cell wall, while the animal cell doesn’t.

Besides making these cells out of paper, there are so many other creative ways to do so.

- Make an animal cell out of Lego Bricks
- Make an edible cell.
- Or try a 3D model of aminal and plant cells.
- Finally, you could make a very simple one with playdough.

or for a little less mess, you can order your own professional model that can be assembled.

Above all, enjoy building and creating with your kiddos.

There’s something about holding a real book in your hand and reading aloud to your children. It is fun! It brings in excitement as the story unfolds! And there is so much learning involved.

Even though reading aloud to our kiddos is so much fun, sometimes we want to go deeper. We want them to explore the book a little more, do a little more thinking, and discover reading elements.

Today I can’t wait to share with you a great reading resource that takes well-loved books, and helps you are your little ones dive in deeper.

*Though I was compensated for this post, the ideas and opinions expressed are my own. *

*This post has affiliate links.*

7 Sisters was created by six moms that have all homeschooled their kiddos. And this site provides curriculum created by 20+year veteran homeschool moms and it has been vetted by homeschooled students in their local community for over a decade.

They believe a few things that are important to me as a teacher and a homeschool mom!

- First, they believe there’s not ONE right way to homeschool.
- They also believe that there shouldn’t be busywork and definitely no overkill.
- Next, they focus on the fact that learning should build character and critical thinking skills.
- Finally, they believe there’s not ONE right way to homeschool….or teach!

One of the many products they offer are activities based on children’s books. They take well-loved children’s books and create hands-on phonics, comprehension activities, and more.

Here are just a few books you and your children get to enjoy….

- The Very Hungry Caterpillar
- Corduroy
- Curious George
- Kangaroo
- Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel
- A New Coat For Anne
- The Tale Of Peter Rabbit
- You Are Special

Today, we are going to just look at the activities for The Very Hungry Catepillar….a favorite of my twins. But the activities that the 7 Sisters provide are similar for each book.

Every fictional story has a beginning, middle, and end. These fun fictional stories also have characters and settings, and 7 Sisters provide worksheets to help children identify these important story elements for all the books!

Now, we and our littles get to focus on phonics. In this particular book, the children get to work on sorting out words based on the short vowel sound. Here are the words they get to sort.

First, short “a” words: had, that, than, fat

Second, short “e” words: egg, felt, then, next

Third, short “i” words: still, big, his, in

Fourth, short “o” words: pop, on, hot

Fifth, short “u” words: sun, up, much

The next of the activities based on children’s books is a fun game. Here’s what they get to do.

Using the activity sheet, roll a die. Read the line that corresponds with the number rolled.

Options:

• repeat until all words have been read

• write a sentence for one word from each line

• write a sentence for each of the words in one row

Bonus: Try to use more than one of the words in the same sentence and still have the sentence

make sense!

Each of the activities based on children’s books has a sequencing page that is perfect for children a little older. The children have to cut out the strips and put them back together in the order that they happened in the story. Great comprehension skills!!!!

With other activities besides what I mentioned, the 7 Sisters end “The Very HungryCaterpillar” with two sorting activities.

The first has children matching numbers to their word form, while the other has children sorting food into groups. Which food is a dessert? Is this a fruit or something else? This activity is essential for our little ones!!!

7 Sister’s provide much more than activities based on children’s books. There are activities for high school students such as financial Courses and even Psychology.

They have a freebie section you can browse, or you can even listen to one of their podcasts.

It is definitely a site to check out!!!

Prepositions!

My littles are working on memorizing these fun words. We are putting cute teddy bears over and under as we explore the wonderful world of prepositions.

These activities are great for my little grammar learners, but one of my boys is heading past the grammar stage to the dialectic stage. It is time for this man to take his memorization work to the next level. And this is what this teaching prepositions activity is designed to do!

First, print off the pages on regular copy paper.

Next, cut out the book pages and staple together using the numbers at the bottom of each page.

Depending on the age of your child or children, you could cut out the pictures or you could leave that job for your little.

Finally, gather up scissors (if your child is cutting them out), highlighter, and some glue. And you are ready to go!!

The first two books of this series focus on the following prepositions.

*about**above**across**after**against**along**amid**among**around**at**atop*

Before doing this activity, it is important your kiddos know these words and that they are prepositions.

My favorite way is to grab a teddy bear or favorite doll and have them act out the words. After you have done this numerous times, switch it up. Now you do that activity with the teddy bear and have the child say the proposition that you are doing.

You could even add a step in this teaching prepositions stage, and have the child tell a story with their teddy bear and add in as many prepositions as they can.

Now it is time for some preposition identification.

Begin by reading or having your child read the first page.

Next, have them identify the preposition by highlighting the word.

Finally, have them glue the picture in to correctly demonstrate the proposition.

It is that easy!!!!

Later on in this series, the children have a more complicated task like this one. They must glue on the trash can, then the pumpkins, and show the mouse doing what the sentence says!!!

*Grab all five books here! This is a growing bundle…eventually there will be eleven books. The price will go up each time I add books……but you won’t have to pay more. You can just go in and download the new ones. *

]]>The post Practice Value of Digits with These FREE Place Value For Large Number Task Cards appeared first on You've Got This Math.

]]>I’ve spent numerous hours with my 1st grader helping him to understand place value up to 1,000. I know that for him to truly understand math he must understand this important concept.

Once he conquers this, our work is not over. Place value will still be a priority as we learn about fractions, decimals, and larger numbers.

Numbers don’t stop at 1,000, and so we must spend quality time teaching place value for large numbers! And today I have a few task cards to help.

Get all my place value for large number activities here.

With just a little cutting, this activity is ready to go.

- First, print off the task cards on card stock paper.
- Next, cut them out and laminate them.
- Finally, provide dry erase markers.

Or for an even easier center, place the task cards in a sheet protector and you are ready to go.

Better Office Products Sheet Protectors, 200 PieceExpo 80078 Low Odor Dry Erase Markers, Chisel Tip, Assorted Colors, 1 Pack with 8 Markers, Total of 8 MarkersNeenah Bright White Cardstock, 8.5”x11”, 65lb/176 gsm, Bright White, 75 Sheets (90905)

There are eight different task cards that focus on different skills to build place value.

Children must understand what each digit in a large number represents, and three of the task cards focus on this.

This one simply asks what the digit nine stands for. We know that working our way up the order is from right to left is 1, 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000. So the nine stands for 90,000.

Another task card asks for children to add 10’s, 100’s etc to a number. This is just another way for children to recognize the value of the digits. In this example, we are asked to add 10 to a number. This means I need to add 1 to the number in the tens place. That number happens to be a 9….ugh!! Instead of having 90, now I have 100. This means that I have 0 tens and instead of 4 hundred, I have 500. The answer is 76,500.

If your students are struggling with that, grab those base ten blocks and show them what is happening!!!!!

Lastly, we jump to riddles. All the children have to do is read the clues and create the number described.

There are three task cards that focus on this important concept.

One of the task cards simply asks that a <, >, or = sign be placed between two numbers. In this example, the students are asked to compare 23,412 and 24, 546. They are both in the 20,000 so that does not help us. But the first number only has 3,000 while the second number has 4,000. So 23,412 < 24, 546.

The next task card adds on to this skill by having children place three numbers in order from smallest to largest. Other task cards flip it so that they put them in order from largest to smallest. Either way, the children must analyze the numbers to figure out the order.

Finally, we have a task card that asks children to write the smallest or largest number possible with the digits provided. In this case, the children are asked to use the digits 9,8,7,6,9 to make the smallest number. To do this, I must have the smallest digit in the ten-thousands place and then move up from there. So my number will be 67,899.

The last two task cards focus on counting with large numbers.

The first card has a number line, and the children are asked to fill in the missing numbers. As you can see, the first number on the line is 12,356 and the last one is 12,656. There are only two lines, and the only digit that changed was the number in the hundreds place. So, we are counting by 100. 12,356, 12,456, 12,556, 12,656.

The last task card focuses on patterns. Once again the students need to be looking at the digit that is changing. We have 34,567, 34,577, and 34,587. The 10’s place is changing, so we are counting by 10’s. The next three numbers are 34,597, 34,607, 34,617.

Working through these task cards forces are kiddos to study and analyze the value of each digit. With this study, they are developing a deeper understanding of place value….and that will help them be more successful in math.
