Fun with Fractions

We spent a bunch of time learning about fractions.  Fractions are when you take something whole and cut it into equal pieces.  There were lots of new words to learn, like "denominator" and "numerator".  We did lots of activities with fractions.  One of our favorites was playing a matching and memory game.
In this picture you can see two students playing the matching game.  We had to match the word form, the number form AND the picture.  It was much easier to do when we were looking at all of the cards!  When we turned the cards over and played it as a memory game, it was a lot harder.

We were wondering...

What are some of your favorite activities to practice fractions?
