This booklet will complement your fraction unit study by engaging your students with fun activities including partitioning regions into equal shares using a context such as cookies, cakes, pizza, etc... This is a foundation building block of fractions, which will be extended in future grades. This booklet will provide your students with experiences using the words, halves, thirds, fourths, and quarters, and the phrases half of, third of, fourth of, and quarter of.
The activities included in this packet were created in correlation to the First Grade Common Core State Standard 1.G.3 (AL) and the Second Grade Common Core State Standard 2.G.3 (AL).
Due to many requests, I have included a "Thirds Family." Although teaching thirds is not included in the First Grade Common Core Math standards, I decided to go ahead and introduce thirds to my students and they did really well with it.
