This is a great practice site that allows students to name the fraction indicated on the number line.
These would be great cards for a whole group game that's later placed in a center. More difficult cards can be replaced with repeats of simpler fractions for differentiation. Kids should have access to models to meet this SLE.
Complete the repeating color patterns.
This would be a great demo or manipulative for comparing fractions.
Home School Math
This has a good visual of rulers broken down into different sized increments that can be used as number lines or measurement tools. Note that there are rulers on the bottom that can be cut out and used as manipulatives.
Helping With Math
This site has several printable number lines to help with teaching fractions in this format. This SLE is not addressed in Saxon.
Add fractions to make 1.
This is a great site for kids to use to model equivalent fractions.
This site lacks contextual situations, but it's great practice of the different ways numbers can be arranged in a division problem and how they relate to one another. It can be set for a variety of difficulty levels, and the competition aspect of playing against another student encourages kids to look for relationships that will increase their speed.
This site reinforces estimating fractions on a number line.
This is a great site for explanation and practice of divisibility rules.
Comparing Fractions - Though this site takes students beyong benchmark fractions, it's good for whole group instruction with manipulatives and would be awesome for challenge.
This site allows you to switch from parts of wholes to parts of sets to demo models.
The compuuter allows you to select two fractions. You will then be asked to create rows and/or columns in either a circle or square, then shade the appropriate amount to match the point on the number line. This skill is not addressed in Saxon.
Math is Fun
This is a great resource for teaching fractions on a number line and will also lay the foundation for equivalent fractions that come in 5th grade.
Solve elapsed time problems using digital and analog clocks.
This interactive site allows students to practice placing fractions on a number line. The 4th grade SLE only requires to go to 12/12, but this site has up to 20ths.
This site allows you to adjust numerators and denominators to demonstrate parts of a whole and of a set. An excellent resource for modeling the concept. SLE not completely covered by Saxon.
This quiz of basic fraction recognition is a good resource for review and remediation.
This site shows a start and end time. You have to figure out the elapsed time and check your work.
This site allows you to select a number of friends and of cookies to be divided evenly to show the division of whole numbers using models. I would recommemd using this for an extension for this SLE with specific problems to be given to students.
This is a great visual to teach the concept of equivalent fractions.
This is a great site that gives step by step instructions for elapsed time using a clock and time line. Your SLE is only elapsed time to the five minutes, but this one goes to the minute.
A Maths Dictionary for Kids
This is a great site for kids to practice multiplication of 1/4 by whole numbers. It should be used after you've taught fractions as parts of a set with hands on and pictorial representations.
Choose the levels with like denominators.
Great visual for equivalent fractions using parts of a whole!
This site allows you to select different representations of fractions to practice. Note that level 4, number line, isn't tested until Q2.
Note that third grade is the first time that kids are expected to recognize fractions that are shaded in noncontiguous parts. By using the Filling Fraction Shapes option, you can model and encourage them to shade them in this way. Pages can be differentiated for various abilities, and SB's camera tool allows you to use the images when creating notebooks.
Identify fractional parts of a whole. Use this site to supplement the SLE not completely covered by Saxon.
This interactive site has a number line with halves, but they're in decimal form. Kids will need to convert to halves.
Choose the levels with like denominators.
This site allows students to practice fractional representations on a number line. They will have to estimate to answer questions, but lines will appear to show exact amounts after they select the right denominator. This SLE is not completely covered in Saxon.
