Creating Fraction Story Problems

December 19, 2017

One of the best ways to help students build comprehension of story problems is to allow them to create their own. With this in mind, I gave my students the opportunity to create their own story problem with a Christmas or winter theme. I only asked that they include a fraction in the problem. 


After I introduced the assignment, I gave them an example. (They love to watch me draw.)


They were excited to begin writing and drawing their own story problems. The Christmas season gave them lots of ideas.


Would you like to try this activity with your students? Download a blank copy for yourself, and make copies for your students. Let me know how it goes. And Merry Christmas!
