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!
