Equivalent Fractions Four Corners

I hope everyone had a MARVELOUS Thanksgiving!
I'm so thankful for a PLN that allows me to share and explore new ideas with them!

We're getting ready to delve into the concept of Equivalent Fractions the "TNReady way"...
This means learning the language and deepening our knowledge of models with equivalent fractions NOT just dividing or multiplying numerators and denominators...

Take this question for instance...

So my kiddos have to be able to identify the fraction that is shaded in the visual model...and then determine which of the listed fractions could be an equivalent fraction of this model.. 

We're having tons of fun using 4 corners as a way to practice and assess...but you could easily use the Plickers app to assess skill levels as well. I'm also working on creating a Kahoot to go along with this skill... It will be called "Equivalent Fractions with Visual Models"... 
I'm in the process of creating it now, but you should be able to access is through this LINK.

If you'd like a copy of the google slide presentation to play in your room 
This LINK should allow you to copy the presentation into 
your own google drive :)

If you've got an idea for this frazzled teacher on teaching equivalent fractions or decomposing fractions or multiplying fractions...etc...etc... 
I sure would appreciate any shares or thoughts!

Who knew fractions could be so scary and overwhelming?!?
Still learning to be fourth grade :) 
Thanks for learning along with me!
