Fractions-Bubblegum, Bubblegum in a Dish....

We are feeling the time crunch and ERBs are just around the corner for our kiddos.  We finished up our measurement unit last week, and have wasted no time whatsoever!  It may or may not feel like the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in third grade right now.  ;)  AHH!  Spring Break will be here on Friday, we can power through!

Anyway, I love teaching fractions. It's one of my favorite math skills to teach.  Emily made this hand-out that we did today.  Our kids loved it!

They will color a gumball according to the directions and then make a fraction to represent the part (that color) of the whole (gumball machine).  We talked about numerators, denominators, word names, and even squeezed in some time for this cute little activity.  If you want to download it, click HERE.

We hope all is well with yall!  We will update later this week about equivalent fraction ideas.  Thanks for reading!
