# Shelf Elf Fraction Cards

### Tomorrow, my elf will be sitting in the shredding box with some red and green shredded paper. We will still be working on estimating fractions. For the activity tomorrow, I made fraction cards. Each student will have a card with a fraction on it. They will go around the room and find a partner. They will use theirs and their partner’s fractions to estimate the sum, difference, and product. Here is a link to the free fraction cards. These cards can be used in MANY ways! After having them find the estimated operations, I will probably have them find the exact sum, difference, product, and quotient.

I have followed in your footsteps and have an elf for my 4th & 5th grade accelerated math classes. They have really enjoyed the activities, thank you SO much!!

Funny story – Yesterday, our elf (Elfis – ha, ha!!) was sitting on the edge of my dry erase board ledge and I was in the middle of a lesson, when he fell to the floor. One of my 5th graders jumped out of his seat, knelt beside the elf, and pretended to give him CPR. It was hilarious!! They are really loving it! Thanks again!
