Favourite Fraction Game & my upcoming SALE!

This year especially, I've found my year 8 and 9 students don't have the understanding of fractions that they should! Considering they should have this understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages at a year 5/6 level, it's SCARRY!
One of the more engaging ways I check for student understanding is to use my Jumping Fractions 5 Ways game throughout relevant units and as a general review throughout the term.
The reason I check for understanding this way is that all students can match the visual representation with the fraction. Then from there the language and it becomes either the percentage, decimal OR simplified fraction that they struggle with.
To ensure this game covers the various learning abilities, I split it into four sets.
  • Set 1 - 83 cards - Match tenths fractions in all representations
  • Set 2 - 31 cards - Match fifths fractions in all representations
  • Set 3 - 25 cards – Match quarters fractions in all representations
  • Set 4 - 9 cards – Additional simplified fraction cards to add to each level.
I have 4 more TpT items to sell until I reach my 20 sales and another FLASH % off SALE! :) What % discount would you like to see 5%, 10%, 15% or 20% OR would you like to see 35% off four items - If so, you can choose which ones! :) The most popular response will be it, so get in soon! :)

Thank you to everyone who has supported me and purchased some of my items! If you have any requests or theme suggestions you'd like to see, please let me know!!


  1. You are so right about the fraction knowledge (or lack thereof) - my little Yr 1er's struggle at just the concept of 1/2!!! And C2C only has us covering it twice so far - that's it for fractions.

    Great news about your TpT sales - I think any %age off is a brilliant and generous offer...

  2. I've found C2C to be allll over the place. We have had to adapt the C2C units to suit our year 8 and 9s as what was done in year 10 is now year 9, but then there is no Year 11 and 12 ACARA yet, so it seems that we're pushing them so hard, with no end goal that's linked for the year 9 and 10s!
    Sales have slowed down a bit this week, but I expected that as everyone has been back for nearly 2 weeks now and will be settling in and looking around for future resources.
    I LOVE any fraction, %, decimal games that can make learning the concepts fun. It's so tough on those lower level learners. :)

  3. Hello! It was such a huge pleasure to visit this blog and in particularly to read this blog post. Will you be so nice and provide an answer to my question. How do you feel about guest blogging?
