This mini lesson about fractions is not part of the usual term 1 JK math curriculum. A few other steps come before we begin learning about fractions. However…one of these little guys was quite interested in the fraction circles and wanted to learn about them, so why not. Fractions can be found everywhere and so cookies is how we made fractions relevant to us. We discussed a few scenarios where we had one cookie and 1, 2, 3 or 4 friends to share with. After a little discussion and modelling using the fraction circles, the students explored with the circles, independently. Thanks for inspiring this mini lesson, Mr. C.
