Do
you need something besides a “drill and kill” activity to practice fractions
and/or percents? **is my newest bundled resource. It**

*Math for All Seasons***is a 33 page resource that is a fun and engaging way to utilize math concepts while keeping the students actively involved. Specific words are provided. The students are instructed to figure out the correct fractional part of each particular word. (Example: The first ½ of WENT would be WE. Notice that WE is also 2/4 or 50% of WENT.) If each fractional part is correctly identified, when the students write the fractional parts on the lines provided, a new word is created. Each group of new words becomes a riddle or the answer to a riddle.**

A Fraction for All Seasons |

*Snow Riddles***handout**, (page 13) 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% are introduced.

**, (page 24) specific questions are asked to acquaint the students with fun facts about the month of March**

*March Riddles***.**

*April Riddles***(page 29) introduces the students to several interesting historical facts that occurred during this month.**

For
each month, there are between 7-11 word fraction riddles; so, there are
numerous ways to practice recognizing fractional parts, understanding
equivalent fractions, identifying basic percents (25%, 50%, 75% 100%), and
reducing fractions to lowest terms.

Instead
of completing all of the monthly riddles in one day, the puzzles may be divided
up and used as a focus activity, when a student finishes early, or when there
is a short amount of time left before the next class or activity. An individual
puzzle may be given each day, or the riddles can be interspersed throughout the
week or month. Answers are included at
the end of each month’s activities. The
complete resource features six months (January,
February, March, April, October, December) and contains a total of

**49 fraction riddles**.
If you prefer, each
month of fraction riddles may be purchased separately; however, this resource
bundles all six months for a discounted price. Just click the title under the cover page shown above, and download the preview to take a quick look at this new item.
