I am currently completing a student teaching internship in a a Kindergarten classroom, and we will be covering fractions i in a few weeks. I know that fractions can be a difficult c concept for some students to understand, so I'm seeking s suggestions and strategies/tips that will help me as I p prepare to teach fractions. Our unit will cover the basics i including, 1 whole, 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4. Any suggestions for l learning activities that seem to really interest students, w while helping them to understand the concept of fractions. D Do you focus on learning one specific fraction at a time? W What would be your general plan for teaching the basic f fractions over a two week period? Thanks in advance for any t tips or suggestions :
