This song is available on Jennifer Fixman's We Love Math with Miss Jenny.
This song contains a lot of information in 2 minutes! Sing this song “for fun,” and ask children to point out things they learned after the song. Use it as a springboard to teach basic understanding of fractions, comparative fractions, and addition/subtraction of fractions.
Print the PDF version of the song (coming soon) to see illustrations.
Explicitly teach fractions using small paper plates. Draw a line to divide plates in half. Children should shade 1/2, and write the fractions on each side. Next, repeat the activity using thirds and fourths.
Write story problems using fractions. Create a class big book.
