Adding and Subtracting Fractions Using the Four-Square Method
A few years ago when I first started teaching adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators to my fifth graders, I quickly realized that they needed some concrete step-by-step directions. They also needed a way to organize their work. I racked my brain for a little while before coming up with this graphic organizer. My students loved it! Now teachers around the country are using this method!
INSTRUCTION: The Four Square Writing Method can be used by teachers to provide students with graphic organizers to use when they are writing, especially for students who may have difficultly structuring their writing by allowing these students to focus on the meaning of their writing (CTW, p. 147).
