Ugh This is an awful book for clarity about fractions If you were a fraction, you would be one or equal parts of a whole So., improper fractions i.e., fractions greater than 1 aren t fractions So, 4 3 isn t a fraction If you were a fraction, you could be divided into three equal parts You would be thirds The WHOLE is divided into 3 equal parts to make thirds Thirds isn t a fraction 1 3 is a fraction 2 3 is a fraction 3 3 is a fraction Thirds isn t a fraction Repeat this complaint for halves and fourths and eighths If you were a fraction, you could be part of a set A set is a group that has something in common This doesn t really mean anything This whole two page spread adds nothing.The comparison page uses fractions to compare something when whole numbers would do as well why compare 1 6, 2 6, and 3 6 when you re really saying one got 1 cookie, one got 2 cookies, and one got 3 cookies.

There s poor incorrect phrasing all through this It often seems like a sentence is saying that you are a whole being split into n pieces and then that you are a 1 n piece.Fractions less than 0 or greater than 1 aren t included in the definition of fraction here There was also no need to use and define the word set if it wasn t going to be in the math sense.A few good things rectangles split in half two different ways, showing 2 3 and 3 4 made up of 1 3s and 1 4s.Reduction is just stated, not discussed, and it s in an inappropriate context for that.

I liked the different ways this book talked about fractions as both a mathematical concept and as a part of life The ending, where the book mentions being part of a whole picture, made me think that this might also be a good book to use when there is a new student or at the beginning of the year This would introduce some great math vocabulary while also making some necessary connections to the students being part of the whole class.

Great intro to fractions The book reiterates that if you were a fraction you would be part of a whole I would take that concept and have students use it in an activity that uses hands on manipulatives such as the burger fraction, pizza fractions, fraction snap cubes and similar type objects Use this book in addition to others for a complete look at the world of fractions Students could write an example of how they are part of a whole when it comes to the class, their family, friends, etc.

This is a nice book for explaining fractions It s part of a much larger series called If You Were that covers many early math concepts as well as a lot of ELA terms It s a simple, fast read that children are sure to understand and become enlightened by My kind of book.

This was a good book to explain fractions It tells the definition of a fraction then it goes on to give different examples of fractions the examples are cute and easy to see the difference between the different fractions.Read a loud at the beginning of the fractions unit.

Awesome book for teaching fractions It s a must have

This book tells students if they were a fraction cut into 4 equal parts, then they would be fourths and so on Then shows other examples like pies cut into eighths, etc.

I love this book for integrating math and literacy in the primary grades.
