How to teach to add fractions?
If you teach your child the math concepts with things they are familiar with it will be easier for them to understand it. We want to provide you with a story to tell your child and to make it live together. All you will need is two empty jars, a Sharpe and beans. Ready?
Martin and Carolina went to the store and they both took an empty jar.
(Measure the jar, divided it into three, and place two marks with a Sharpe in the jar to make the three parts visual for your child)
They each filled one-third of their jar with beans.
(Fill the jars up to the first mark)
Martin had a great idea to put his beans in Carolina´s jar so they could share what they had.
How many thirds do they have together?
Be creative! And find moments in your child´s day to day activities where he/she makes use of fractions. The more children live what they are learning, the easier it becomes for them to learn it.
Let´s make their learning meaningful!
