Our 2nd graders have been focusing on fractions for the past couple of weeks. Next week we are finishing up our unit, so I wanted to come up with a few new activities for our kiddos to do.
One of the concepts we are going to work on is understanding that the fewer the parts, the larger the size of the parts/the more the parts, the smaller the size of the parts. Goodness… there’s got to be a better way to say all of that, ha! I made this poster to display throughout the week. You can grab that HERE 🙂
We are also going to work on going beyond the whole. I didn’t have anything for that, so I made some word problems that we will complete in our math spirals. These have been added to my Fraction Unit, so if you already own it make sure you redownload for the update!
We are also going to sort fractions based on if they are labeled correctly 🙂
Anytime I can find songs or videos to accompany my math theme, I make sure to save those links! My kids love a catchy tune 🙂 Click below to see some fraction videos:
They will also continue naming fractions and sorting them based on their parts. For this sort we are also going to order the fractions in each category based on the amount that is shaded 🙂
We will finish the week with this simple craftivity (also added to my Fraction Unit) where we will make a snowman that shows fractions shaded beyond the whole.
And, here are some old fraction freebies that you might enjoy!
