Learning fractions can be a challenge, so why not make it fun? Be A Fraction Artist ( Set Two) is a "hands-on" manipulative activity that engages children in a creative way.
Learning algorithms without understanding the underlying math does not help students "make the connections", necessary in grasping the next steps. Students need effective activities that allow them to go from a concrete experience to a more symbolic, abstract process.
Students can choose to roll dice, record their fractions into the color legend or follow the fractions indicated on specific game boards.
There are 5 different sets and each is focused on fractions with different denominators.
Students are encouraged to share their strategies and share their thinking as they make choices and ultimately demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of fraction concepts.
The teaching tip guides and equivalence chart are excellent visual aids that can be posted as a helpful learning tool to be used throughout the games.
Students can be challenged to create their own "Fraction Artist Canvases", allowing for further practice of fractions with a variety of denominators.
Your "Little Geniuses" will love learning about fractions with these fun activities. Be A Fraction Artist Set One is also available.
