Math standards here in Texas have changed quite a bit this year. We no longer teach fractions of a set anymore – just wholes now.
I wanted to share a few things we did during our fraction unit.
The kiddos started off understanding equal and unequal parts with Pop-Tarts. Afterwards we moved on to fourths and halves. That is something else that changed with our TEKS this year. We only teach halves and fourths.
I gave each kiddo a handful of different sticky notes. They had to fold them to create halves and fourths.
After folding, they traced the fold with their pencil and then with a black marker. Next, they had to sort their fractions by halves and fourths.
We used washi tape to create the t-charts.
We also created fraction flowers using several different 2D shapes as our wholes.
And Fraction Kites!
Yesterday we wrapped up our fraction unit with these Flip Its!
I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
