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.
