Love that picture of Dee
Kids definitely get fair share!
Yes! So much can be done through 'play'. No need to go symbolic so soon.
Such a beautiful reminder of the intuitive nature of fractions.
When I was a classroom teacher, we talked about how fractions are fair (equal pieces).
Look at that cute dice.
People on the dice.

I love the non-examples!! I forget about those sometimes.
Glad to have you here Michael:)
Yes.. Lisa... I love non-examples, too.
And caution kids about referring to "the big half." No such thing! THey need to know fractions are EQUAL parts.
Love that way of framing the nonexamples! Mistakes are an opportunity to learn!

Yes, Lisa! :-)
Love this virtual resource!Thanks, Cindy!
I adore this card sort.
yes, they struggle at first.
He understands halves as being 2 pieces not that they have to be 2 equal pieces
good example of limited definition of halves
He understands halves as 2 pieces...they dont have to be equal pieces.
He understands 2 parts, not equal prarts
He understands halves are 2 parts
Ask about being fair
is it fair?
I would ask him or her, “Can you fold the figure so that either side can be superimposed onto the other equally?
Love that instructional move, Leah
