Cut out various shapes from paper and draw lines on the shapes to divide them into equal and not equal parts. Ask your child which shapes are divided into equal parts, and sort the shapes together.
Build a strong foundation with fractions by teaching students to differentiate between equal and not equal parts. Use paper cut-outs to model the concept. Have students sort shapes into 2 categories: those that are divided into equal parts, and those that are not divided into equal parts.
