Valentine's Day Fraction Task Cards

Fractions, Fractions, Fractions!

In fifth grade, we have been teaching fractions for almost a month and we have a whole month of February to go! At first, my students were a tad frightened of fractions, but so far we are enjoying a pretty fun, though sometimes challenging, fractions adventure!

As I am preparing for my husband's return from Afghanistan, I am thinking WAY ahead, all the way to Valentine's Day! We get one "winter celebration" so my students chose a Valentine's Day celebration over a Christmas one. Needless to say, I really want Valentine's Day to be fun for them! I have a whole bunch of fun afternoon activities planned, which I will share as soon as I spruce them up, but I want to squeeze some math in that morning since my students really enjoy math and no one wants to celebrate the ENTIRE day. So I decided to make a small big set of fraction task cards with a Valentine's Day theme which took me a couple of days  more than a week to create. I must say that I am extremely happy with my efforts, and it is yet another item that I feel is TpT worthy. I covered every single fraction skill with 4 review questions for each, which is why this may have become a bigger set than I intended, with 52 cards in total! No, I don't expect my students to do all 52 cards, I think there are a lot of different ways to approach these task cards, with two students splitting them, or with 4 students splitting them, which is why I also included a couple of answer sheets with different options.

Anyway, here is a preview of my huge new set of Valentine's Day Fractions Task Cards that I am so in love with!

Now I'm already thinking about what I can do for my favorite holiday: St. Patrick's Day! I've got some ideas brewing already!! I am sure that whatever I create will be related to writing since our writing test is in March. Can't wait to see what I come up with. I'll hope it turns into something else that I can be proud of! I feel like I'm on a roll! And my hubby comes home in just two days! Yippeee! I just might have to have a celebration sale at my TpT store to celebrate his return! Keep an eye out!

Enjoy your last two days of the week everyone! By the time the next week begins, I will have my husband at home (and hopefully cooking for me) for the first time in eight months. I am just so, so glad that he is safe and sound and kept his promise to come home to me. Hooray for my husband!
