Teach children EASILY how to find a fraction of an amount or whole number with this VISUAL, fun, hands-on lesson that will engage and enthuse them. Just print off the lesson plan, read through and work from it. I love teaching fractions and have included everything you need to get the facts across easily and painlessly! I teach for understanding and this unit is aimed at just that, understanding!
There are eight highly-visual worksheets for you to enlarge or display on your screen or print off for the children. These worksheets will take them step-by-step through the process of finding halves and fourths (quarters) of numbers and get them started on easy fractions. They simply use manipulatives that you have available to help them.
Comes with fully worded lesson plan for you to simply print and follow. I have included my tips on teaching fractions, which I absolutely love doing! The children I teach all love fractions and can do them well (up to age 11) and I love that. I find if you give them the facts and the language they need when they are young, they grasp the more difficult aspects of fractions later on.
There is a blank worksheet to support each worksheet that you display and work from. This will reinforce and secure learning and allow you to see if the children have grasped the facts. Use the worksheets in math centers, for support groups, reinforcement, assessment or homework.
All you need are some counters, sweets or other items and four bowls or cups (preferably that you can see through).
