Fractions are simple concept . but often time we do not use day to day things to explain it to children.
Over the years I have learnt if you want to teach a concept to a child and make sure it stays with him/her forever, do it using common day to day objects. That will ensure that whenever the child sees that object invariably concept is refresh in her mind.
So for introducing fractions to my little one I used Orange. You will ask why Orange? Because Orange has 12 sections. So with this one fruit you can so many fraction concepts.
With orange you can teach full, half, one fourth , three fourth, one third, one fifth up-to one twelth fraction.
So next time when your are eating oranges, remember to talk about fraction with your child.
