Product Description
Do you remember the caterpillar to count the school days in Kindergarten? Well, now older students can count the school days too, but with fractions! Fractions can be intimidating, but if you review and discuss them each day, they become familiar. Your students will be prepared with the basics by the time your fraction unit rolls around.

Each day of the school year, add a one-eighth piece to the caterpillar. Name and discuss the fraction each day and watch your caterpillar grow!

This set adds eighths pieces each day. If you are looking for a simpler version, you can find a fourths set here: Fraction-Pillar {Fourths}

Why should I use Fraction-pillar?
-It is a super easy and quick way to give students daily exposure to fractions.
-Students are learning complicated material in a no pressure way.
-Repetition, repetition, repetition!

How long should I spend on Fraction-pillar?
5 minutes or less! Tack it on to your calendar time or morning routine, or use it to kick off your math class. Once you have your routine established, there may be some days when you simply staple the next fourth up and name the fraction. Other days, you may dig a little deeper. Make each day as long or as short as you need.

The daily discussion is what makes this resource so effective. Talk about numerators, denominators, equivalent fractions, and simplifying. Since it is daily, it will become second nature to your students!
