Make learning fractions fun for kids and easy prep for grown ups! The Fraction Activity Pack is filled with motivating and effective activities that teach key vocabulary like numerator and denominator, parts versus whole, thirds, fourths… Once kids are ready, they put it all together and read and write fractions on their own.
There are so many important steps to really understanding fractions. The Fraction Activity Pack makes learning each piece exciting. The pack is great to use as math centers, whole class activities or homeschool practice.
What’s a Fraction?
To help kids learn that fractions are equal parts of a whole object or set of objects, the activity pack includes a colorful anchor chart breaking it down.
Then kids work on several no prep pages that ask them to identify whether pieces are equal (and therefore fractions) or unequal (and not fractions).
For example, students are challenged to find different ways to cover a hexagon with pattern blocks, draw their solutions, and mark whether the parts are equal or not.
Identifying Numerators and Denominators
When they’re ready, kids move on to identifying numerators (the number of fraction pieces in their part) and denominators (the total number of pieces). They roll and color fraction number lines,
… And more.
Reading and Writing Fractions
and sort fractions into more, less and equal to one-half.
Children solve fraction puzzles using equivalent names for the same fraction.
They play Chocolate War. (Who has the bar with more chocolate?)
Kids roll and color fractions,
and play I Have, Who Has. (“I have two-fifths, who has one-fourth?”)
