Adding and Subtracting Fractions with like denominators

Today we will learn how to add and subtraction fractions with like denominators. Last week, we practiced naming and labeling fractions. Let's do some review!!

Can you write the fraction that goes with the shape?
What about this one?

Today we are going to look at like denominators! That means they are the same!!!! For example, if I have 1/3 and 2/3 they both have like or common denominators. They are the same! Look at the example below!

Do you understand? Do you get it? Okay, lets do a couple of examples. Before you do it on paper, I want you to do it with your fraction kit!! Get them out!

1/3 + 1/3 =

2/6 + 3/6 =

7/8 - 4/8 =

7/10 - 5/10

Are you ready to try it on your own?

Alright, will my teacher helper pass out the worksheet?!?
