I’m back with some new anchor charts today! We’re moving right along with our fractions unit! Here’s an anchor chart that I made for adding fractions with unlike denominators. This takes the students step-by-step through using a model to represent the addition of fractions with unlike denominators.
The anchor chart below shows how to create equivalent fractions using both a picture model and with multiplication. Some students connect more to the visual model and some will use the multiplication only. This fits multiple types of learners very well.
I hope these anchor charts are helpful for you as you’re teaching fractions!
