• Identify parts of a whole with two, three, or four equal parts.
• Demonstrate equivalent fractions using concrete objects or pictorial representations.
• Recognizing pictorial representations of equivalent fractions and decimals in tenths and hundredths
• Recognizing different interpretations of fractions, including parts of a set or a collection, points on a number line, numbers that lie between two consecutive whole numbers, and lengths of segments on a ruler
• Locating proper fractions with common denominators 2 through 10 on a number line with fractional parts of the whole indicated on the number line
• Solving problems that involve addition or subtraction of fractions with common denominators
• Comparing fractions with common denominators using the symbols <, >, and =

Journaling with Fractions
• Write a Fraction Fairy Tale.

Red Riding Hood loved to bake. She heard that Three Little Pigs had moved in a new brick house just down the street. Being a good neighbor, Red wanted to welcome the Pigs into the neighborhood. So, she baked an apple pie. When the pie was freshly out of the oven, she put it in her basket and skipped down the street. When she got to the Pigs’ home, the Three Little Pigs were very excited about the pie, but couldn’t decide who would be the Pig to eat it. Red knew that the pie would have to be cut and to keep the Pigs from fussing, she cut it into three equal pieces. Each pig ate 1/3 of the apple pie and lived happily ever after!

Fraction Fajitas

Use tortillas as a manipulative to teach fractions. Each student will need two tortillas– one to represent the whole and one to represent the fraction.

Mrs. Housley’s Peculiar Pizzas
• Create pizza templates. Cut yarn long enough to “slice” each pizza a few times. Students will use the yarn to divide the pizza into even pieces based on the order taken. Use worms, dinosaurs, bugs, etc. to create toppings on a fraction of the pizza.

Everybody's doin' the Action Fraction!Gettin' mathematical satisfaction!Dancin' a radical new sensation!Sweepin' it's way across the nation!

Reach up high as you can go.Bend down low and touch your toes.Lift your hands half way up,And mark the middle with a clap, clap, clap.

Reach up high as you can go.Bend down low and touch your toes.Lift your hands one fourth the way.Snap your fingers, step and sway.

Reach up high as you can go.Bend down low and touch your toes.Lift your hands three fourths the way,Jiggle and shake 'em any old way.

Turn one third and wave your hand.Turn another third and wave once more.Turn another third and you're right back homeReady to what you did before.

Everybody's doin' the Action Fraction!Gettin' mathematical satisfaction!Dancin' a radical new sensation!Sweepin' it's way across the nation!
