### Fractions!

One of my favorite things to teach in math is fractions. There's so much you can do to teach this and my kids have always done well with this difficult skill. Yesterday we learned about halves and we did my cookie activity from last year

Today we covered fourths and we used the story The Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza
We each made a little red hen and a pizza. Once we finished the pizza, we folded it into fourths and drew lines to show the four equal pieces. They LOVED this activity and it helped so much! If you want the patterns, I can fix it up into a little freebie...just let me know!

***If you have commented or emailed me about the Reading Street Comprehension Sheets....I *promise* I am going to upload them! I've been so backed up with units that I haven't finalized them yet. They will be up this weekend! Sorry for the delay!
Update!: Reading Street Comprehension Sheets can be found here.

*****UPDATE 5/29/14 The craft patterns for The Little Red Hen Pizza are now available in my store! I've included extra fraction practice in the unit :) Click here to check it out!

15. Hey! So I know you do Go Math but you are teaching fractions right now. Did you just do this to do it, or did you switch around the curriculum and take a break from this dreadful addition that have us doing in chapter 3? I wish we could take a break from Go Math...

1. We decided to skip around after tackling addition in chapter 1! We went to chapter 11 then 12 and we finish it up on Monday and we are headed to Chapter 6. Addition/Subtraction was just too much for them right now!

16. Hi, I just love your cause and effect anchor chart, however I can't see all of it. Would you mind posting a picture of the whole chart? I just love all the anchor charts you have made and I am sure this one is just as cute! Thanks!
