Grade 1- 3


Students complete a fraction table and divide shapes into different fractions.


  1. Review the meanings of the numerator and the denominator by drawing a square on the chalkboard. Write the fraction 1/4. Ask the children what the fraction 1/4 tells them about the square. (The square is divided into 4 parts and 1 of the parts is shaded.) Repeat the above steps with several other shapes and fractions.
  2. Distribute copies of the Naming Fractions activity sheet to students.
