Free Fraction Pacing Guide: This blog post shares an “I Can” checklist for students and shares how I pace my 5th grade fraction skills.

Note: This is based on 5th grade standards and focuses only on multiplying fractions less than 1 and dividing with unit fractions and whole numbers.

The anchor chart and the sort are used after I have introduced and we have practiced both operations in isolation.
