### Lisa's Grade 5-6 Fractions Planning Map

Key planning suggestions: Use the Fractions Learning Pathways (FLP) to support planning. Punctuate instruction (revisit and extend) with two to five lessons per month focusing on fractions concepts in order to develop and solifidy ideas. Embed fractions throughout the curriculum to allow students opportunities to deepen understanding, by reinforcing and extending concepts over time.

 Topic Representing fractional amounts using Linear Models Representing fractional amounts using Linear and Area Models Month September October Concepts on FLP Unit A, Unit D, Comp E Unit A, Unit B, Op B Tasks (including extensions and revisits) Assessment: Gap Closing Document Counting Game (Unit D): emphasize fractions are quantities that can be counted (e.g., 1 one-fourth, 2 one-fourths, 3 one-fourths, 4 one-fourths, 5 one-fourths). Walk the Line (Unit A) Living Number Line (Unit A): emphasize benchmark fractions and numbers beyond 1. Pretty Powerful Paper Folding Comp E): emphasize usefulness when comparing fractions and determining equivalent fracitons. Assessment: Represent Fractions Walk the Line (Unit A): emphasize strategies for equi-partitioning. Revisit Desktop Fractions (Unit B): emphasize the connections between linear and area models. Revised Building Flags Task (Op B): emphasize that there are many ways to decompose an area. Opportunities to Connect Across Strands Number Sense and Numeration place value: include fractions/decimals on the same number line. Measurement connecting importance of the unit in measurement to the unit in fractions converting units of measure (numbers, decimals, 1mm, 2mm) Number Sense and Numeration multiplication: simple multiplicative relationships involving whole numbers and fractions Measurement equal partitions Patterning and Algebra number of selections relative to number of folds

 Topic Representing, comparing and ordering fractional amounts using Linear and Area Models Representing, comparing and ordering fractional amounts, ratio using Linear, Area, and Set Models Month November December Concepts on FLP Unit D, Comp A - E, Op C, Op D Unit F, Comp A Tasks (including extensions and revisits) Revisit Counting Game (Unit D) Revisit Living Number Line (Unit A): emphasize that fractions can represent numbers greater than one. Train Game (Op C) Building a Stage (Op D) : select prompts based on student need. Fraction Shape Sets (Unit F) Recipe Task (Comp A): emphasize connections between two-dimensional models, such as an area or region and three-dimensional models based upon capacity of mass. Opportunities to Connect Across Strands Number Sense and Numeration multiplication: an area model relates to an array Geometry and Spatial Sense   Measurement linear measurement: decimal units relate to fractional units Number Sense and Numeration division percent ratio Measurement area, volume equal capacity or mass Geometry and Spatial Sense attributes

 Topic Representing in real-life situations, equivalent fractions Equivalent fractions Month January February Concepts on FLP Unit B, Unit D Unit D, Unit F, Comp E, Op B, Tasks (including extensions and revisits) Brownie Sharing (Unit B): emphasize changing denominators (units within a constant whole). Assessment: Frayer Model: Represent 2⁄5 using area moel. Linear model and set model. Revisit Counting Game (Unit D) I Have, Who Has (Unit F) Revisit Pretty Powerful Paper Folding (Comp E): emphasize that as the digit in the denominator increases, the size of the region decreases. Building Flags (Op B): emphasize equivalent fractions and spatial reasoning Changing wholes wiht Pattern Blocks (Unit F) Opportunities to Connect Across Strands Number Sense and Numeration division Patterning and Algebra repeated folding (e.g., think about the number of folds compared to the number of equal parts) Data Management and Probability Geometry shape transformational geometry Data Management and Probability more, less or equally likely

 Topic Relationships between fractions, decimals, percents Ratio, equivalent fractions Review Month March April May/June Concepts on FLP Comp B, Op B Comp A - E, Op A Tasks (including extensions and revisits) Assessment: I Know/I Wonder Comparing fractions using fractions stories (Comp B) Revisit Building Flags (Op B): add decimal equivalents to flags and number sentences. Rock/ Paper/ Scissors: emphasize applications of fractions in probability Comparing Fractions Tasks (Comp A - E): select prompts based on student need. Recipe Task (Comp A): emphasize equivalent fractions, counting fractions. Post-Assessment using the Pre-Assessment Tool Reveiw and revisit Fractions concepts as required Opportunities to Connect Across Strands Data Management and Probability relate circle graphs to wrapped number lines and fractions Geometry and Spatial Sense Patterning
