An introductory fractions resource for K-2 kiddos. Plenty of hands-on exploration, practice with printables, and games. This is geared for K-2 but could be used as an intro to fractions or for review in 3 (and does meet several of the Gr. 3 CCSS Standards in both Geometry and Fraction domains). Use the printables for extra practice, homework, bell ringers. Use the centers as part of your math rotations throughout the year.
