We have created this fraction activities to help introduce the concept of fractions to your students.

CCSS.Math.Content.2.G.A.3 Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.

Word Cards Students match the fraction with the words.

My Name in Fractions Students write their names and then identify the fraction of letters in their names that are vowels and consonants.

My Fraction Book Print, cut and staple to create a beginning fractions booklet for students.

Fraction Mat Print in color and laminate for an easy center. Students use a dry erase marker to write the fraction for each shaded shape.

Fraction Cards Sort Students match the fraction, picture and words.

Pizza Fractions Students practice cutting the pizza into parts and then write the fraction.

Lego Fractions 1 You will need to provide Legos for this activity. Students follow the directions using their Legos and then write a fraction. For students who need more of a challenge, we have created Lego Fractions 2.
