{Printable} Back to School: Fractions

When my kids are finding something hard to understand at school I try and help them further at home, be it spelling, telling time or handwriting.  Over the next few day’s I will share with you some resources that have been a fantastic help to us.

Fractions is a hard concept to grasp, my kids struggled last year to understand it.  I have tried purchasing board games thinking they would help, however some of the fraction pieces they need to learn such as 1/3 wasn’t included.  So instead I created this sheet up below and stuck it to each of the kids cupboards to help them learn.

Cooking has been a great experience measuring and picking the correct cup size to what is asked in the recipe.

    this is visually a great idea, although my kids are only starting Grade 1 this year and not quite at this stage yet, i think i will print it out regardless. I totally agree with the cooking though, i try to teach them fractions whenever we bake togetherReplyCancel

  • Katrina,

    Another way to help them visualise their fractions is for each child to make their own fraction wall. This is an activity we do with Year 7s in class.ReplyCancel

    I wish I’d had this a couple of years ago. Thought you might like this site – it helped my daughter (and me) a lot – – we used it extensively for all sorts of fraction work like improper fractions etc. It has great explanations, and test pages.ReplyCancel
