Teach children EASILY how to find and understand fractions of an amount with this VISUAL, step-by-step hands-on lesson plan and worksheets that will engage them. Print as a workbook or individual worksheets and use to start teaching fractions to beginners.
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!
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).
