fractions on green board

I devised this recipe for some special educational needs students who had great difficulty understanding the explanation in text books on adding fractions. When I explained about adding fractions using the analogy of cutting pizzas to share equally with friends; the students began to understand and asked me to write a guide on how to add fractions. I wrote it as a recipe to help students understand that following instructions gets the same result every time. I used colors to help special educational needs students remember facts and processes.
