Fraction is a key learning chapter in Math. In Canada, school introduce the concept of fraction in grade 3/4. In our classroom, we introduce fraction in Pre-k / K.
That’s the first time princess do fraction skittles. We talk about ‘whole’ and ‘part of whole’
With the color coded materials, princess matches the cards with skittles.
With the fraction skittles, princess see 2 fourth skittles are equal to 1 halve skittle. That’s the magic of Montessori material. The materials are so well designed. Children get the math concept through the work.
