Give Me Half by Stuart J. Murphy is a book in the Math Start series that teaches students about Fractions.
Give Me Half follows two siblings trying to share a pizza equally.
With easy to understand pictures and text, your students will understand halves quickly!
You can then do a fraction activity with your students to give them hands on practice with Fractions.
This activity is easy and fun!
Ask your students to decide what fruit they would like to create. They could do an apple, orange, lemon, lime, etc.
Using scissors, construction paper and glue, students will then show how to create a whole fruit, and then a fruit in the following fractions: 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4.
This is a great activity to help students understand fractions! You can find Give Me Half here.
