    Suggestions/Tips for Fractions

    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 :)
