Introducing Fractions

these five fraction activities help children learn to identify fractions

 

There are numerous fraction activities to help teachers and parents introduce fractions…and they are fun too. There are STEM projects, art projects, and of course games. No matter how you choose to expose your little ones to the world of fractions, here are some concepts you may want to cover.

  1. First, children need to understand that a fraction is EQUAL parts of a whole.
  2. Next, make sure children understand what numerators and denominators represent.
  3. Finally, make sure your activities our hands on and allow children to see fractions in numerous situations. Using visual models, number lines, parts of a set, and arrays are wonderful ways to show children that fractions can be used in situations other than pizzas.

Books are a wonderful way to introduce fractions, and there are so many fraction activities that can be done based on books.

I love this activity based on Twinderella and this one based on Full House. So when you start planning to introduce fractions, grab a few books and enjoy reading with your kiddos.

These are a few we love.

Fraction Activities for Equivalent Fractions

Most of grew up learning one method of finding equivalent fractions. We all learned that when we multiply fraction by a fraction that equals a whole number you end up with an equivalent fraction. But do we understand why?

Every time we teach a new math concept we should also be teaching the why….and using manipulatives is an awesome tool for this.

Here are a few manipulatives I love for teaching fractions.



Now check out some ways you can use these manipultives to help children learn about equivalent fractions.
