Teaching “Fractions” can be started early in the year with many great activities and follow the common core!
Often times in math the book has the section on Fractions found at the end of the year. I feel like fractions is a rushed section trying to get everything else in that needs to be taught, and then working with “fractions” has a little different twist on math.

How to use the Product
The product is organized so it can be used early in the year. I want the kiddos to methodically understand and visualize fractions. The worksheets in the product meet the common core in math. I copy it as a packet and use it throughout the year. Along with the packet I use the fraction vocabulary in class and I also make an anchor chart and build on that all year.
Fraction Game-Culminating Activity
The game can be played with a small group setting or copied for a whole class. It can be used as a matching activity. The kiddos love the game and catch on to it fast. Depending on the age level you are working with the cards you use my be different.
Our last activity in Fractions is to have a Pizza Party!
