Represent Fractions on a Number Line Lesson Workbook


12 Step-by-Step Math Lessons | Special Education Math Intervention | Third Grade Math Level


This Representing Fractions on a Number Line lesson workbook includes an example IEP goal, 12 step-by-step math lessons, a review and assessment. This evidence-based math intervention is tied to third grade standards and is great for special education math goals and tier 2 small group math interventions (RTI).

This workbook focuses on representing fractions on a number line and with partitioned circles.  Number lines are presented both horizontally and vertically.  Reading fractions on vertical number lines will be helpful when learning measurement skills (for example, using a liquid measuring cup).

These sequential lessons are easy to teach, with enough material for 3 weeks of instruction!

Students Will Be Able To:

  • Read fractions aloud
  • Identify whole units on a number line
  • Count the parts in a whole unit
  • Write a fraction to label a shaded horizontal and vertical number line
  • Shade a horizontal and vertical number line to match a fraction
  • Write a fraction to match a picture (shaded circles)
  • Partition and shade circles to match a fraction
  • Tell whether a fraction is more than, equal to, or less than one whole


Lessons Are Tied to These Standards:

Second Grade  CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.G.A.3

Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.


Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b.


Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram.

About the Author

Hi! I am a Special Education & Title 1 teacher interested in task analysis. My resources break tasks into small and explicit steps, reducing cognitive load for learners so they can feel successful and confident rather than overwhelmed and reluctant to try. I strive to lighten the workload of teachers by making resources as practical and easy-to-use as possible. I sincerely hope my work can benefit you and your students.

I appreciate your support and feedback.
