Labels for Fraction Circles
- Understanding fraction symbols
- Association of fraction and symbol
- For Kindergarten and elementary school children
- Labels printed on green cardstock and red cardstock.
- One set of green introductory labels; one set of green labels for all fraction circles; two sets of red introductory labels; and two sets of red labels for extensions.
Note: Fraction Labels are considered support material and are not automatically included in classroom sets.
Labels to use with fraction circles or discs to learn numerators of one as well as other proper fractions. Green labels include fractions with a numerator of one. They are often used for introductory lessons of fraction symbols in conjunction with Montessori fraction insets. Also included is a label for each fraction in the inset set: two halves, three thirds, four fourths, etc. Red labels are for extensions.
Labels printed on green cardstock and red cardstock. (Lamination recommended for heavy use; cutting required.) Recommended storage (not included): Five hardware drawers, small boxes, or envelopes.
The teacher's experience and the sequence of skills in the students' basic math program are the best guides in determining which skills should be introduced first. In general, the scope and sequence chart above can be used as a guide.
A number of sets for younger children are "color coded." Some teachers present all the levels with an exercise set, while others prefer to present all the blue (two-digit) exercises, progress to the pink (three-digit), and culminate with the green (four-digit).
Other skills such as Roman Numerals require no prerequisites other rhan an understanding of place value. Such exercises can be presented any time.
