Ideas for home
- Cooking offers a great opportunity to talk about and use equivalent fractions. If a recipe requires 1 1/2 cups of flour, ask your child about different ways to measure it. They might suggest using a one-cup measure and half cup measure once each, or think 3/2 instead, using a half cup measure 3 times.
- Fractions are part of meal time, too. Ask, “The pizza is cut into eighths, what fraction would you like?” or, “How can I give one-half to your brother and one-fourth to you? How many slices would that be? How do you know?”
- Talk about which unit of measure would be most appropriate for different situations (e.g. measuring a piece of paper, a length of cloth, the length and width of a room, or the distance from home to school).
- At the grocery store, ask your child to find items other than beverages that are labeled with fluid ounces, like liquid laundry detergent.
- Shopping for produce is a great opportunity for comparing ounces and pounds. Have your child use the scale to weigh different items and tell you the mass in both pounds and ounces: “The apples weigh 36 ounces, which is 2 1/4 pounds.”
