You will have great success with this step-by-step (and believe me it works!) lesson plan (with tips) for your 2nd grade class on fractions and proportion. No it is not too early to begin teaching the concept of fractions and proportion because it involves equal-sharing.
There is even a section on what do do when you encounter problems.
The plan includes amazing visual descriptions of each step along with worksheets for students to complete each step. You will wonder why you hadn't thought about this sooner!
Included is an additional section with beginning fraction worksheets with a horse theme that kiddos absolutely love!
Each file is 30 pages (1 with horse theme-one without)
