Integrating these opportunities into small group, learning stations, or centers also offers flexibility within the classroom to differentiate and meet the varied needs of students.
One of my students favorite learning stations was the puzzle/game station. This station always included at least a couple of options related to a topic that needed procedural fluency built. This week I offer teachers five such puzzle/games relating to fractions. From fraction equivalence to addition and multiplication of fractions it is my hope that your students find these Tarsia puzzles fun and engaging. A facilitation note: I would run these off on regular paper – possibly colored. That way students can actually write on the pieces as they work on putting the puzzles together.
