### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is 2 sets of 27 "I have, who has?" basic fraction cards. The idea to help young students (2nd, 3rd grade) practice identifying and naming different basic fraction names. If you have fewer than 27 kids in your class, you can have some students hold 2 cards.

What makes this the BEST VERSION EVER?

1) Almost all the activities of this type exclusively use the "pie" or "circle" model. This activity uses both the pie and rectangular model; you can switch back and forth, or you can mix the cards together.

2) When you see pie or rectangle models, the divisions are almost always the same: the pie division always starts at "12 o'clock" and then moves around. This is seriously bad, because students will com to believe that halves are always divided vertically and never horizontally or on an angle. The same is true of rectangles; by dividing up the fractions only vertically, students don't see that there are other ways to divide up the rectangle.

3) The activity alternates between the words used to name the fractions (like "ninths" and "thirds"), so that your students know how to say and spell the words. In addition, I've included both "fourths" and "quarters," so that students know that know both terms for dividing something into 4 equal pieces.
