Introduce fractions using money and shapes:
Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
***Includes two half-page flipbooks.
One of the flipbooks features the front side of the money, while the other features the back side so students can learn to recognize both sides.
