I like an active classroom where everyone is busy. If you stop in one day it will look like chaos, but it is a carefully orchestrated chaos that cleverly disguises all the learning that we are doing. I use a lot of activities -- and keep the kids moving. Research says that if anyone sits for more than 15 minutes, their brain disengages and learning is not happening. So I design a lot of activities to get kids moving, talking, thinking and participating.

Fraction Subtraction Domino Set

(0)
Students practice solving subtracting fractions in a game format. Set includes 4 different sets of dominoes: 8 Dominoes, 12 Dominoes, 16 Dominoes and 24 Dominoes.

Dominoes are cut apart, placed face down and students draw all dominoes equally. Student with "start" places the first domino and then student with the answer/fraction problem in their hand plays the next. This continues until one student is out of dominoes and is declared the winner. I usually give 5 points per domino left in other students hands and keep a running tally.

For students who struggle, have them practice matching the problems with the answers before the game.
