# Montessori Math Material: Fraction skittles

# Learning Fraction with Fraction skittles and task cards

I recently developed some task cards to go with our fraction skittles

I used these fraction skittles to introduce the concept of fraction.

Children can hold the skittles, feel what is the meaning of a whole

## Stage 1: Matching the symbol cards with the skittles

Child put the skittles on the task card and find the matching symbol for it

## Stage 2: Coloring the fraction part with the given symbols

**Putting skittles back to the tray is a learning opportunity**

Hannah put the skittles into the tray. I told her there is no rule on how it should be placed as long as all skittles are on the tray. Here is what she did.

**If you want to follow Montessori Manual, the skittles should be placed in sequence.

Left to right: a whole, half, one third and quarter

For me, I prefer to provide open questions for my students to explore.
