fraction fun {what are you looking for?}

Like I mentioned in my post yesterday, I am working on a fraction unit and I hope to have it up by the end of the week {hopefully Saturday}. In my classroom, I will be hitting fractions hard, starting in January. I really want my students to take valuable information away from these lessons and really know what fractions are by the end of second grade. I am gearing this packet for grades 1-3.
While getting this unit ready I would love to know what you are looking for in a fraction unit. What concepts/ideas are most important to you when teaching fractions? In this unit I am including anchor charts {pictured above}, games for centers, worksheets, and mini books. Is there anything else you wish I would add? If there is, please let me know in a comment below. Even though my focus is on my own students, I would love to adapt this to your classroom needs as well! Thanks for your input/comments!
