 Fractions 

February 1, 2021

  • Divide a large pile of objects (cereal, plastic animals, blocks, etc.) equally into 4 piles to illustrate one-fourth. Recombine the group to divide into other fractions.
  • Get out the measuring cups and spoons!  Let your child play with them in the bath to experience one-half cup or one-third teaspoon.
  • Fold a piece of paper into halves, and then into halves again with your child. Open it up to show the division of fourths.
  • Count the rooms in your house and make some fraction facts about them.  One-half of the rooms have windows. One-third of them have pillows.

Mental Mystery

Have your child count out 10-20 objects such as pennies, marbles, or candy and have him close his eyes. Then hide some of the five objects, while leaving the rest uncovered.  Ask your child to calculate how many objects he sees and how many objects are covered. Practice this activity until your child can quickly solve these simple equations. Add one additional object once your child has mastered that level to increase difficulty. 

Multiplication War

With this fun card game, your child will master his multiplication facts in no time! Shuffle a deck of cards and deal them face down, giving each player an equal number. Assign the picture cards a value of 10 and the aces a value of 11. Each player turns two cards face up, reads the number sentence and supplies the answer. For example, if your child draws a 7 and an 8, he says 7×8=56. If you draw a 6 and a 4, you say 6×4=24. Because his product is larger, he wins the four cards and puts them at the bottom of his pile. Continue the game until one player runs out of cards.
