In this unit your child will read, identify, and write fractions. The will explore equivalent fractions, compare and order fractions, and find parts of a group. Throughout the unit word problems using skills and strategies will be reinforced. Your child will have lots of "hands on" oportunities to help them picture the fractional parts more clearly. In addition, we will use a number line to help visualize a fraction as a part of a whole number. This will tie into measuring to the nearest 1/4 inch as well.
