Use this chart to help teach students what the numerator and denominator means. In this chart, the example of 2/3 is given. 3 represents how many equal parts the object is broken into. 2 represents how many of those pieces are shaded. Using the "I have" and "equal parts" phrase, the fraction picture of 2/3 would be explained as "I have 2 out of 3 equal parts".
Once the "I have, equal parts" concept is understood it could be used in more detail, such as "I have 5 red cars out of 7" or "I have 3 pieces of pie eaten out of 8 equal slices."
