Oh Fractions. Are there really any fun ways to teach fractions? I am figuring out all the ways to make learning more fun and we did it with fractions, too. The more interesting you can make learning while kids are young, the more excited they will be about learning! Since fractions tend to be a more challenging subject for kids, I am going to show you how to get the kids begging for more fractions!
This post was inspired by my previous popular posts Fun Ways to Teach Division to Kids & Fun Ways to Teach Multiplication to Kids. We have done a lot of different fraction activities on my site over the years. I will re-cap a few from here as well as some other ones that we have discovered and loved.
