Click here to try a design program that gives you practice making flags using fractions. This is an activity that can help improve your child's understanding of fractions through art. This could lead to a whole host of discussions. Ever thought about how many flags are split into thirds?
We are starting our fractions unit this week. Our focus for this week will be understanding how people use fractions, identifying the parts of a fraction, and representing fractions as part of a whole and part of a set. Please encourage your child to try this fun Fraction Matching Game. Click here to go to the site. Also, explore fractions at home by showing them how fractions are used in cooking, sewing and construction. What other ways do you use fractions?
