Have Fun with Fractions
Fractions can be fun, but the concept can be a little daunting for young learners. Try these tips for making fractions fun everyday:
- Give your child playful fraction exercises while doing normal family routines. You might give your child a waffle for breakfast. Ask your child how he could divide the waffle if he wanted to share it with a friend. What if he was sharing it with three friends? Walk through the names of each fraction as your child cuts into his waffle.
- Use fractions when talking about the time with your child. Instead of telling your child that you need to leave for school at 7:45, you could tell him that you need to leave a quarter to eight. You could also tell him that you're going to leave in five tenths of an hour, or that you want to leave at seven and three quarters of an hour.
- Try cooking or baking with your child to practice fractions in the kitchen! Recipes often call for 1/4 of a cup of oil or 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon. Your child might even need to cut off 1/4 or 1/2 of a stick of butter. And if you bake a pie or quiche together, your child can practice fractions when it's time to cut slices!
- Last, help your child practice daily with fun fractions worksheets. Regular fraction practice on paper and in real life will help your child understand the concept fully.
