Hands-On Activities for Teaching Fractions

Teaching fractions is a key concept in 2nd grade and all grade levels. Fractions are a part of everyday life in the real world and will be built upon in upper grades. Depending on where you teach, your state standards for teaching fractions may vary. With these hands-on activities for teaching fractions, your younger students will have a blast learning about fractions.

How To Introduce Fractions

My favorite way to introduce a new math concept like fractions is with a whole group anchor chart. An anchor chart is a great visual aid that is meant to be created together with your students. This is one of the first things you should do because it helps them learn about the concept, see visual representations, and learn mathematical vocabulary.

I recommend creating a whole group version of an anchor chart together as a class before you start teaching fractions. This anchor chart can be displayed in your classroom during the entire fraction math unit.  

A good way to prep the whole group anchor chart is by having it ready ahead of time by writing the title and drawing the columns and boxes. Any information, mathematical vocabulary, and models should be added together as your students are participating in fraction instruction.

After creating the whole group version, students can create a mini-version to include in their interactive math notebook. This great introduction helps build deeper understanding of fractions. It also serves as a great tool for teaching fractions to students that they can reference all year long for great success. 

After you’ve introduced the concept of fractions using the whole group and student version of the anchor chart, then you’re ready to dive into your fraction lessons, hands-on activities, and fun games for teaching fractions.

Today, I’m going to share some simple ideas for practicing fractions that can all be used for both whole group and small group instruction. 

Equal and Unequal Parts

The best way to start a 2nd grade fraction unit is by teaching students about equal and unequal parts. You can do this with a simple, yet effective hands-on sorting activity for building a strong foundation. 

I like to print different fraction task cards when teaching fractions that show both equal and unequal parts on sticky notes. This makes it super easy to pass out the sticky notes and have students decide whether their fraction sticky note shows equal or unequal parts. 

Students will then stick their fraction note on the correct side of an anchor chart or whiteboard chart. 

Shading Fractions

Another effective, hands-on activity for teaching fractions is to have students read a fraction name and shade the corresponding fraction in a fraction flipbook. They can keep this flipbook for reference during the entire math unit.

This Fraction Flipbook is essential when teaching fractions because it is helpful as students complete other fraction activities, such as this interactive notebook Shading Fractions activity. 

Pick the Fraction

Pick the Fraction is the perfect follow-up activity to the Fraction Flipbook and Shading activities for teaching fractions. This is a good strategy that will help students practice the concept of identifying and modeling fractional parts as well as writing fractions in word form in a hands-on way with basic linking cubes. 

This activity can be used in either small groups or a whole group setting. All students will need is a set of 2 different colors of linking cubes, like red and blue. Each student will need a cup or tub of the 2 colors of cubes.They will also need those same 2 colors of markers or colored pencils. 

You can either call out a number of cubes for students to choose or have them follow the instructions on a recording sheet. They will choose that many cubes at random. They will draw the fraction they chose.

For example, if they chose 2 red and 2 blue cubes, they’ll draw 2 red dots and 2 blue dots. Ask students how many cubes are red. For example, in this case, two-fourths of the cubes are red, so students would write, two-fourths.  

Play Dough Fractions

When teaching your fraction unit, it’s important to include various dividing fractions activities for students to get lots of practice with. One of my favorites is called Play Dough Fractions. This activity can be done in a whole group, small group, or in partners to help students master fractions.

Give each student or pair of students 1 can of play dough and a tool to help them partition the play dough into fractions. This could be a basic play dough tool, a plastic knife, or another similar tool. 

Students will form various shapes out of the play dough. If you would like, you can even give them pre-made cookie cutters to make various shapes out of their play dough. Students can use the play dough lid to create circles.

After creating their shapes, students will use their tool to divide (partition) them. Students can practice partitioning the shapes into various equal parts. 

I like to use these play dough shapes task strips for students to read, create, and partition the fraction from. If doing this activity in a whole group, I would give everyone the same shape task to complete. If doing this in a small group or partners, I would give them all a different shape task to make.  

This is a great activity to encourage mathematical conversations about fractions and the size of their parts. You can discuss and model how the more parts a fraction has, the smaller they’ll be. Similarly, the less parts a fraction has, the larger they’ll be. 

Folding Fractions

Folding fractions is another great hands-on activity for teaching fractions. Students practive dividing fractions and putting them back together. Plus, it’s an easy way to incorporate a hands-on activity! All you need are basic pieces of paper and pencils. 

Cut out simple shapes from the paper, such as rectangles, squares, and circles. Give students one of each shape and have them cut the shapes out. Fold one shape in half, another in fourths, and another in thirds or eighths, depending on your state’s standards.

Model how to fold each shape and open it back up so they can see the folded lines. This helps students see visually how the shape is divided. Next, have students use their pencil to trace over the folded lines to see even clearer how the shape is divided.  

Then, students will cut the fractions apart and put them back together, like a puzzle. You can have students mix up the pieces and put them back together several times to practice.

They can also tape or glue the pieces back together on colored paper and label each part. This is an effective and simple way to practice multiple fractional concepts in one activity. 

Fractional Parts

A key concept when teaching fractions in 2nd grade is fractional parts. Students need to understand that even though two shapes may be the exact same shape and size, their fractional parts may be different depending on how they are partitioned.

For example a rectangle divided into fourths will have smaller fractional parts than the same-sized rectangle that is divided into halves. 

This concept can be confusing as the larger the number of parts, such as eighths, the smaller the fractional parts. 

Using a whole group PowerPoint and class game is a great way to help break down this concept and give students more practice and repetition.

They can then apply this knowledge with a small group writing activity for teaching fractions. Students will look at two identical shapes that are divided into different fractions. Then they will write to tell which fraction has smaller parts along with an explanation of how they determined the answer. 

Activities for teaching fractions that introduce students to the concept of fractions beyond one whole are very important in 2nd grade. After introducing this concept and completing an interactive notebook activity, reinforce the concept using this hands-on small group fraction game. Students will practice drawing fractions beyond one whole using number cards.

I hope these hands-on fraction activities for 2nd grade have given you new and simple ideas for how to introduce and teach fractional concepts to your students.

How To Teach Your Child Fractions At Home

When it comes to teaching maths at home, it’s fractions your kids and you, will probably struggle with most. With words like numerator, improper, vinculum and others making their way into homework and school reports, sometimes even the number of terms relating to fractions for kids can all seem a little overwhelming for parents.

Knowing how to teach your child fractions at home can just be difficult. But having taught in schools and in homes, we’ve been there and done it and can reassure you now – there is a way through, you just have to take it step by step.


Jump to the fraction for kids help that you need

Fractions in a nutshell – The things you may have forgotten since school!

We understand that fractions can be frustrating for both you and your child, so here’s everything you need to know about them in brief!

What is a fraction?

Fractions are used to represent smaller pieces (or parts) of a whole.

The parts might make up one thing, or more than one thing. Either way, altogether, they make up what’s called a whole.

It’s important to note that a whole can mean more than one thing. It’s useful to think of a sweet shop as an analogy. For sharing a singular whole amount, you can think of a chocolate bar, a cake bar, or muffin. For grouping an amount into fractional parts, you can imagine a bag of sweets – there are lots of sweets in the bag, but you need all of them to make up the whole bag.

What is a child friendly definition of a fraction?

A simple definition of a fraction for children is:

A fraction is any part of a group, number or whole.

What are the parts of a fraction?

A fraction has three parts. They are:

The numerator which is the number above the bar.

The denominator which is the number below the bar.

The vinculum which is the bar separating the two numbers.

What is a unit fraction?

A unit fraction with 1 as its numerator (top number), and a whole number for the denominator (bottom number).

Read more: What is a Unit Fraction

What is a non-unit fraction?

A non-unit fraction is a fraction with a number greater than one as its numerator (top number) and a whole number for the denominator (bottom number).

Using objects to visualise fractions

When you’re starting out with teaching children fractions, objects or pictures of objects are a great way to understand how they work.

Start with concrete items, like food or counters – you can use pasta pieces or dried beans in place of counters – then draw them as pictures.

Once you’ve got this down, you can move onto using rational numbers (the fancy name for fractions) to represent them. Learning fractions in this order makes it easier to work out fractions of natural numbers later on.

The most important thing to remember when you’re dealing with fractions is to go slow.

There’s so much information to process! Even if something seems easy, take the extra time to really understand the basic concepts behind fractions. It will make life a lot easier when you come to more complex problems that involve converting between fractions, decimals and percentages later on.

Examples of fractions in everyday life

You may not even notice, but fractions are all around us! Some examples of everyday fractions include:

  • Splitting a bill at a restaurant into halves, thirds or quarters
  • Working out price comparisons in the supermarket when something is half price
  • Figuring out amounts in the kitchen, for example a recipe could serve 10 people but there are only 4 eating, and this means you’ll need fractions to figure out the correct amount
  • Adding up monetary amounts
  • Looking at time! Half an hour and quarter past are both common things to hear where time is concerned!

Why are fractions so tricky in primary school maths?

In the first years of school, you learn how numbers work. You learn how to count, and that the number 1 is equal to one object, 2 is equal to two objects, and so on.

You learn that when you count up, the numbers have more value. And then, just when you think you’ve got the hang of numbers, you learn that there are other types of numbers out there, like fractions.

As a child, you are still making sense of the world. So when you learn a set of rules (like how to count with positive whole numbers), you hold onto them. The problem? When you come across things that don’t fit the rules, it’s much harder to understand.

Positive whole numbers (like 1, 2 or 65) are simple. They gain more value as they go up, and they always mean the same thing (1 always means 1, and 2 always means 2). They are also known as natural numbers. Fractions are known as rational numbers, and they follow different rules.

To cut a long story short, understanding how to do fractions can be tricky for primary school children.

Fractions don’t always mean the same thing. ½ of a cake is not the same as ½ of three cakes, or ½ of a bag of 12 sweets! That’s the first hurdle – the value of a fraction changes depending on how big the numerator (top number) is. Secondly, if the bottom number (the denominator) in a fraction gets bigger, the value decreases. On top of all of that, names for fractions don’t always sound like the number they represent, like an eighth foror a quarter for ¼.

What does my child need to know about fractions in KS1 and KS2?

With fractions for kids changing from year to year throughout primary school, there is a lot to cover in the blog, but to help you out we’ve broken it down on a year by year basis.

How to help teach your child fractions in KS1

In KS1 almost the most important thing you can support your child with is their understanding that a fraction is a part of a whole. And a unit fraction is an equal part of a whole. If they can grasp this, they can move forward.

How to help teach your child fractions in Year 1

When it comes to fractions, Year 1 is all about getting to grips with the basics.

Fractions for a 5 or 6 year old is about how to use objects to find simple fractions like ½ and ¼. The good news is that you can have a lot of fun with fractions at this age!

Get creative when helping them work out fractions

When demonstrating sharing into halves or quarters, it is vitally important to show something being shared into equal parts. By doing this your child will be able to visualise what is happening when you are creating the fraction, and it will help with their understanding.

Playdough is a great place to start when helping your child to work out fractions at a young age, as it is malleable and easy to adapt into different fractions.

However, a firm favourite in primary classrooms is using food to represent fractions, and this is what you can do with your child at dinner time if pizza is on the menu!

Remember to emphasise the importance of every slice of pizza being of equal size.

This is a simple visual representation of a fraction, and you can adapt it to try it with ¼ too.

You can use any food that’s easy to divide up, but make sure to use the language of fractions while you do this (halves, quarters and divide).

The numbers your child will be working with for Year 1 fractions

In Year 1 your child will largely be focused on the numbers 0-20, but they may also work on some specific larger numbers that are easy to tackle at this age. For example they may be able to tell you that half of 100 is 50, or that one quarter of 100 is 25.

How to help teach your child fractions in Year 2

In Year 2, there’s a firm focus on finding fractions of lengths, shapes and sets of objects.

Fractions for a 6 or 7 year old involves continuing use of physical items to help them visualise fractions, so now is a good chance to crack out the counters (or a suitable replacement) for some easy practice!

They’ll also learn that some fractions are equivalent too – for example, 2/4 is the same as ½, or 2/6 is the same as ⅓.

Here’s how to explain it simply using counters (pasta or dried beans are a suitable replacement from the cupboard).

To help your child fully figure out equivalent fractions, point them out wherever you can, (especially ½ and 2/4 at this stage) as this continued repetition will help them to practise until they perfect their knowledge.

Another easy way to practise is to shade in different fractions of shapes, like this:

This simple, yet visual method is a great way for your child to work on their fractions in Year 2.


How to help teach your child fractions in KS2

KS2 is the time when fractions can get slightly tougher for your child, but with all of the help on offer below, you won’t have any trouble helping them learn all about fractions at home!


How to help teach your child fractions in Year 3

Fractions for 7 and 8 year old kids in Year 3 involves them starting to move away from using objects to understand fractions.

They will still use some visual aids when working with fractions, but there is more of a focus on understanding how to write fractions as rational numbers (the form you are used to seeing them in) too.

Side note… the division symbol looks like ➗ as it shows a fraction bar (or – its proper name – a vinculum) with a dot above and below it; the top dot signifies a missing numerator and the bottom dot represents a missing denominator. The division symbol itself is a constant reminder of the link between fractions and division!

Equivalent fractions in Year 3

At this age, children also need to know a few equivalent fractions with small denominators, and be able to put them in order.

Equivalent fractions is a real leap for many children, and most teachers find it a real stumbling block for many children in their classes.

However, there are three sure-fire ways of helping your child understand how to do equivalent fractions in Year 3, and you can see them below!

Equivalent fraction playdough

This is a simple, yet very effective activity that can help your child to visualise equivalent fractions in a way that they will understand.

How to run the activity

  1. Give your child three evenly sized balls of playdough.
  2. Get them to break one ball down into halves, another into quarters and the third into eight evenly sized pieces.
  3. Now, use a scale – preferably a balance scale – to show that the half is equal to two quarters and four eighths. (Also, that a quarter is equal to two eighths, and that three quarters is equivalent to six eighths.)
  4. You could get them to reform the three original balls of playdough, breaking them down into three, six and nine equal pieces. Again, you can demonstrate that a third is equal to two sixths and three ninths, and that two thirds are the same as four sixths and six ninths.

Equivalent fraction paper strips

All you need for this activity is a sheet of paper, some scissors, and a bit of patience when it comes to cutting the strips!

How to run the activity

  1. Firstly, cut some strips of paper. They must be paper strips of equal length.
  2. Fold the first strip in half.
    Fold the second strip into quarters.
    Fold the third strip into six equal parts or sixths.
    Fold a fourth strip into eight equal parts or eighths.
    Finally, fold a strip into twelve.
  3. Next, work with your child to label the strips, so each part on the first strip has ½ written on each part, the second strip is labelled with ¼s, and so on. Now, you / they can show that a half is equal to two quarters, three sixths, four eighths, and six twelfths.

You can then show that a quarter is equal to two eighths and three-twelfths.

You could repeat the process again, folding equal length paper strips into three, six, nine and twelve, showing that two sixths, three ninths and four twelfths are equal to a third.

Using the strips you’ve made, you can do the same for ¾ and ⅔ too! You’re off to the races!

Comparing, and adding & subtracting fractions in Year 3

Of course, the value of a fraction depends on the numerator (the top number) and the denominator (the bottom number).

Fortunately, in Year 3, you only need to compare fractions with the same denominator, which makes things easier.

When the denominators are different, there are a few more steps to follow, which we’ll explain later on in this blog.

You’ll be pleased to hear that adding and subtracting fractions isn’t too scary in Year 3.

As the denominators are the same at this point, you just add the numerators, like this:

¼ + 2/4 = ¾

Which can be shown using paper strips again:

The principle is the same for subtraction in Year 3.

Example of a Third Space Learning online maths lesson working on pupils understanding around relative fraction sizes – a common misconception that a larger denominator means the fraction itself is larger.

How to help teach your child fractions in Year 4

In Year 4 your child should be beginning to understand the basics of how to do fractions, and they will have more of a focus on using abstract fractions.

It’s likely that they won’t be using as many counters and other physical learning resources, although it is still important to weave these into their learning, meaning you shouldn’t stop practising with them at home!

Fractions for 8 and 9 year olds is about nailing the basics before everything gets a lot more complicated in year 5.

By the end of Year 4, your child will need to know how to:

  • Count up and down in tenths and hundredths
  • Work out fractions of amounts
  • Add and subtract fractions (same denominator)
  • Recognise quite a few common equivalent fractions and decimals.

Fractions word problems in Year 4

At this point in primary school, word problems become more common, usually involving measurement units, like mm, cm, m, km and g and kg, and money.

Working out fractions of amounts is much easier if you use bars to represent the different parts.

Take for example the question of:

What is 1/6th of 1200m?

If you wanted to work out 2/6 of 1200m, you’d just multiply the answer for 1/6 by 2. For 3/6, you’d multiply it by 3.

Bars work really well for learners who like to see things laid out visually. They can be used for other areas of maths too – ranging from division, multiplication, addition and subtraction to ratio and proportion – not just fractions!

Equivalent fractions in Year 4

The word equivalent just means the same as.

In Year 4, your child needs to know the decimals (numbers with decimal points) that correspond to simple fractions.

You can work them out manually (by dividing the numerator by the denominator), but it’s a good idea to memorise the common ones so you can access them quickly.

Fraction Decimal
½ 0.5 (or 0.50 – the value is the same)
¼ 0.25
¾ 0.75





How to help teach your child fractions in Year 5

Year 5 is probably the most challenging year for fraction learning, and unfortunately other than hard work, there is not an easy way for 9 ad 10 year olds to learn their fractions this year.

But if you really know the concept behind fractions (that they’re parts of a whole and they have different rules to natural numbers), then you’ll be fine.

The reason that Year 5 can be tricky is that there’s very little concrete representation, A.K.A most of the pictures and items used to represent fractions are now gone!

Your child will start to add and subtract fractions with different denominators, which means there are a few more steps involved.

The language used can be challenging too.

Make sure to use words like denominator, numerator, divide, compare, order, improper fraction and mixed number often to keep key vocabulary fresh in your child’s mind, as this will stand them in good stead for the work they will be doing throughout Year 5.

Comparing and ordering fractions in Year 5

Comparing and ordering fractions with the same denominators is relatively simple.

However, in Year 5, you need to know how to compare and order fractions with different denominators.

Most schools will not use the calculator strategy though, as calculators are not used in the Year 6 SATs (also known as the End of KS2 Assessments).

If your child is struggling to grasp the concept of comparing fractions with different denominators though, the calculator is a good place to start.

Calculator free way to work out ordering fractions

The process of ordering fractions without a calculator may take a little longer for your child to get to grips with, but it is something they will need to know in Year 5.

The image below demonstrates how to work out ordering fractions if you don’t have a calculator.

Ordering fractions can be made much quicker if you know your equivalent decimals and percentages.

Here are the equivalents you need to know in Year 5.

Mixed numbers and improper fractions in Year 5

When you have a whole number and a fraction side by side, like 1 ½ , it’s called a mixed number. You can convert this into a fraction, but the numerator will be bigger than the denominator. In this case 3/2. This is called an improper fraction (you may also hear it being called a top-heavy fraction).

Understanding how to do improper fractions is something that is important in Year 5, and it is something that you can help your child to do.

Adding and subtracting of fractions in Year 5

Another skill your child will learn in Year 5 is how to add and subtract fractions.

Adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator is simple as you just add the numerators and keep the denominators the same.

⅛ + ⅜ = 48

But, when the fractions have different denominators,they need to be made the same before you go any further.

Year 5 is a good time to get used to finding common denominators (making the bottom number the same) as in Year 6, much of the fractions work your child will do relies on their ability to do this.

Multiplying proper fractions by fractions in Year 5

Having learned an awful lot about fractions already by Year 5, knowing how to times (multiply) fractions is relatively simple compared to all the other processes your child has learned by this stage.

You just multiply the numerators then multiply the denominators, like this:

2/4 x 3/5 = 6/20

Multiplying fractions by whole numbers in Year 5

When you’re asked to multiply a whole number by a fraction, it looks a little bit confusing to a Year 5 child. For example:

3 x 3/4

To overcome this daunting problem, you could begin by returning back to paper strips, like so:

Here it is important to remember that the denominator remains the same. If that is proving a stumbling block, you can roll out every maths teacher’s best friend: pizza.

But if you remember one simple fact, it’s a lot easier.

Any whole number can be made into a fraction by giving it a denominator of 1.

3 = 3/1

That’s because 3/1is the same as 3 ÷ 1, which is 3.

The resulting equation is much easier to solve. Just multiply the numerators together, and then the denominators together.

3/1 x 3/4= 9/4

How to help teach your child fractions in Year 6

By Year 6, your child will have covered most of the fraction material they’ll need in primary school maths.

Although there are one or two new processes to learn, it’s important to revise the basics this year in time for the KS2 SATs in May – they always seem to come around much quicker than you’d expect!

One of the most important things to ensure your child is confident with is making different the denominators the same, as if this is the case they’ll feel a lot more sure of their abilities within the next chapter of fraction work.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by fractions in Year 6, but there are still things you can do to help your child overcome any fractions frustration!

How to simplify fractions in Year 6

A new requirement in Year 6 is to write fractions in their simplest form.

This just means that we use the lowest possible numbers when we work out our fractions.

We do this to keep things simple – it stops us from ending up with fractions made up of huge numbers (which can be confusing).

Simplifying fractions is another area which highlights the importance of children mastering their times tables. 

For example, even though we know that 2/4 is a perfectly acceptable fraction, we simplify it to 1/2 to keep things easy (using our knowledge of the 2 times table and, consequently, halving).

You can make simplifying fractions easy by practising finding the highest common factors of pairs of numbers.

A great technique for finding factors are factor rainbows, an example of which can be seen below.

How to

divide proper fractions by whole numbers in Year 6

Dividing fractions is a simple process, as long as you remember that when you’re using whole numbers in a fraction problem, you can put that number over 1 to make it a fraction too, like this:

3 = 3/1

So if you’re solving a problem like 3 ¾ , turn the 3 into a fraction first.

3/1 / 3/4

Next, flip over the second fraction (turning it into its reciprocal) and change the operation to multiplication.

3/1 x 4/3

Now it’s a simple multiplication problem, just multiply the numerators and the denominators to find your answer.

3/1 x 4/3= 12/3

Don’t forget to simplify the answer! In this case, the answer will be a mixed number.

12/3= 12 / 3 = 4

Fractions, decimals and percentages in Year 6

Fractions, decimals, and percentages all represent parts, or pieces, of a whole so it’s not surprising that they’re closely related.

It’s good to know how to get from one to the other, especially when you’re ordering or comparing amounts.

Your child should get to know the more common equivalents by heart (see table above) – and learn the strategies for finding common percentages.

For example, to find 1% they must divide the amount by 100, or divide the amount by 10 and the result of this division calculation by 10 again.

Converting fractions for KS2 SATs in Year 6

By the end of Year 6, your child will need to know how to convert fractions into decimals and decimals into percentages.

Converting fractions into decimals

Divide the numerator by the denominator.

If they do not know their equivalences or if it is a more obscure fraction (which it is unlikely to be), they should revert to using short division (otherwise known as bus-stop division).

Converting decimals into percentages

Multiply the decimal by 100. For example, 0.79 would become 79%.

Converting percentages into decimals

Divide the percentage by 100. So, 87% would become 0.87.

Converting percentages into fractions

Put the percentage amount over 100 (e.g. 75% = 75/100), then simplify it – in this case ¾ .

Although there are written methods for converting decimals back into fractions, at this stage it’s best to focus on what’s required for the curriculum in primary school maths and for the most part simple equivalences like 0.25 being ¼ will be all that is required (knowing the eighths is helpful too such as 0.375 being the same as three-eighths).

It’s worth also reading this article on comparing fractions decimals and percentages.

Fractions in reasoning and problem solving in Year 6

In Year 6, there are two papers (Paper 2 and 3) that your child will have to take as part of their SATs.

These papers are about problem solving and reasoning. Fractions will appear in Paper 1 (arithmetic) too, but they tend to be a little trickier when they’re in context.

Get your child to have a go at the following SATs questions to get a feel for the kind of word problems that come up.

Follow these steps to help make them a little easier:

  1. Read the whole question. Check how many marks there are.
  2. Read the question again, circling any important information (this could be words that give you a clue to the operation needed, like halve, share etc.).
  3. Decide which operation you need to use (addition, subtraction, multiplication or division) and if you need to take more than one step to solve it.
  4. Use the operations and steps you decided on.
  5. Double check the answer. Does it make sense in the context of the question?

Teachers’ tricks for fractions | TheSchoolRun

From halves in quarters in KS1 to equivalent fractions in KS2, primary teacher Phoebe Doyle offers some insiders’ tips to help you help your child at home, plus details of fraction walls, hundred charts and other useful maths resources.

or Register to add to your saved resources

Fractions in Key Stage 1: halving and quartering

In Year 1 children will learn about halving numbers. This will mainly be focused around numbers 0-20, but they’ll also learn to divide specific large numbers (for example, they might be able to tell you that half of 100 is 50, or that half of 200 is 100).

The best way to show children halving, is to actually give them an even number of objects (for example: sweets, pasta shapes or counters). Ask them to divide the group into two groups of the same number. They may not be sure of how to do this, so you may need to draw two big circles on a piece of paper and show them how to share the objects, one by one, into the two circles.

In Year 1, children also learn to find quarters of shapes or sets of objects. You can help your child with this by giving them various shapes (circle, rectangle and square) and asking them to divide them into quarters and then colour one quarter. Use mealtimes as an opportunity to practise recognising halves and quarters, too. Could you get them to divide a pizza or cake into quarters and then give one quarter to someone? Remember to point out that one quarter is ‘one piece out of four’ and is written like this: 1/4.

In Year 2 they’ll continue learning about halves and quarters. This will also coincide with learning more about telling the time on an analogue clock, as they’ll be beginning to tell the time to the nearest half past/to and quarter past/to the hour.

Fractions in Year 2 SATs

By the end of Year 2 children should be able to, for example, colour in a half or a quarter of a shape. They should also be able to tell you what a half or a quarter is of any even numbers 0-20.

KS1 SATs often include simple fractions problem-solving, for example:
Dolls are on special offer, they normally cost £10 each but have been reduced to half price. How much will one doll cost now?
Get your child used to reading through problems like this carefully, underlining important numbers and words.

If they need to find a quarter of a number of objects, for example 1/4 of 12, it is always a good idea to get them to actually count out 12 objects and then divide them into four equal groups. It may be a good idea to draw four circles on a piece of paper so that they are clear about how they are dividing the shapes.

Fractions teachers’ aids

A fractions wall is a useful tool that children are likely to use at school and helps them to visualise how fractions relate to each other in size. Look at a fraction wall together and ask your child questions related to it, such as: How many halves make up one whole? How many eighths make up one whole?

A 0-1 number line is another helpful prompt when learning about fractions, and asking them to have a go at writing in fractions onto an empty one can be a useful task to do in itself. Divide the number line up into four sections, and ask them to label each section. Alternatively, give them an empty 0-1 number line and ask them to mark on themselves where 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 are.

Moving on from halves and quarters

In Year 3 children start to learn about trickier fractions, such as thirds and fifths. They’ll be getting more practice at writing fractions out in the correct format and they’ll be asked to colour in or mark out fractions of shapes.

You can help them by giving them a shape, for example a circle, and asking them to divide it into fifths. Now give them a fraction such as: 3/5. Ask them to shade in this fraction on the circle. Then give them a rectangle and ask them to divide it into thirds. Ask them to shade 1/3. You could also ask them to tell you what fraction is un-shaded. They will need lots of practice in writing the fractions down and saying them out loud.

Children in Year 3 will need to work out how to find fractions of amounts, for example: 1/3 of 12, 1/4 of 16, etc. Again, using small objects as counters will really help them with this. If they need to find 1/5 of 15, get them to count out 15 objects. Explain that because they are finding 1/5, they need to divide the objects into five equal groups. You could draw 5 circles on a piece of paper to help them with this. Once they have done this, explain to them that each circle contains a fifth of 15 (3). Once they have got the hang of this, they will need to start using mental division for working out these kinds of questions (for example: 1/4 of 20 is the same as 20 ÷ 4, which equals 5).

Fractions in everyday life

As with all areas of maths learning, showing children how their new numeracy knowledge can help them in real-life scenarios is very valauble, and food is a fantastic fractions resource.

Try doing some pizza making – have them put different toppings evenly across a pizza. Then encourage them to work out, for example, if they’ve put 10 olives evenly on the pizza and cut the pizza into 5 even pieces, how many olives on each? Chocolate that is marked out in sections is another good edible resource. Ask your child to say how many sections would make up one third of the bar. If they answer correctly, let them eat that fraction. Ask them to find, for example, a quarter of the remaining piece for their friend to eat.

Another great activity, and something we really do use fractions for as adults, is working out recipe ingredients for a certain amount of people. So, for example, when cooking a meal for 4, using a recipe for 12, ask your child to help you work out one third of all the ingredients.

Calculating equivalent fractions

Children learn about equivalence in Years 3 and 4, understanding that 1/2 is the same as 3/6, or 8/10 is the same as 4/5. They start to learn about equivalence with the help of diagrams, but then need to move onto recognising equivalent fractions without having to see or draw a pictorial representation. You can help your child with equivalence by using a fraction wall (see above).  You can ask your child questions such as: What fractions are the same as 1/4? By looking at the wall, they should be able to tell you that 2/8 and 4/16 are the same as 1/4.

In Years 5 and 6, they will start to relate fractions to decimals and percentages. An empty hundred number square really helps with this. Ask your child to colour half the squares. Explain to them that they have coloured 1/2, but they have also coloured 50/100. We write this in decimal form as 0.5. Encourage them to colour 1/4 and explain that this is 25/100 or 0.25. You can then go onto explain to them that 25% is the same as one quarter, 50% is the same as one half and 75% is the same as three quarters.


Fraction Activities Students Love — The Teacher Next Door

Fractions can be tough! While it takes time and repeated exposure with fractions for students to have a real understanding of them, there are lots of experiences and activities we can provide as teachers to move their understanding along!

In this post, I’ll share a few of my favorite fraction activities with you!

1. Fractions You Can Touch…And Some You Can Eat!

The first thing we want to do is to provide lots of no pressure, opportunities to play work with objects to make the concept of fractions more clear. Play-Doh is a great way to make fractions!

Of course, you’ll need to let kids play with the Play-Doh on their own at first, but after a few minutes, you can work together to make fraction cookies or fraction pizzas which are cut into equal parts, like halves, thirds, or fourths.

Depending upon your school’s food regulations, a handful (or a bite-sized package) of M&M’s or Skittles are great to sort into colors and to label each color as a fraction. The total number of candies would be the denominator and the numerator would be the specific color of candies in that group.

Colored marshmallows or cereal with several different shapes (like Lucky Charms) also work well. I do let students eat them at the end of the lesson after their fraction page has been spot-checked by myself.

Trying to stay away from food items?

There are lots of small items that work equally well. Buttons in different colors, mini-erasers (great way to use these), small plastic animals, wooden tangram shapes, and so on make perfect fraction examples!



Mentor Texts

There are some really great picture books that either are meant to use to teach fractions, or which have some themes in the books which lend themselves to a discussion about fractions. Check out the picture above for some of my favorite mentor texts if you’d like to add some reading to math time.


3. Fractions in a Cup

To play this game, place your students in pairs. Give each pair a plastic cup with some two-sided counters (your choice of how many counters depending upon your students’ abilities). Students gently shake the cup and pour the contents out carefully, so the pieces don’t fly everywhere. Then students write two fractions to describe what they see.

For example, if there were seven counters total and four landed on the yellow side, that fraction is 4/7. That would mean that there would also be 3/7 red counters facing up for a total of 7/7, which is all of the counters.

If you want to make this into a game, each student could choose one of the colors. After students have written their fractions on whiteboards, have one student flip a More/Less Coin, which is simply a plastic counter with More on one side and Less on the other side on either a sticker or written in sharpie.

The student who has the largest fraction wins if More is flipped and the student who has the smaller fraction wins if Less is shown. This keeps students motivated to play even if the other student has a fraction which is obviously larger.


LEGOS or DUPLOS blocks are great visual tools when teaching fractions. Although these can be expensive, you might be able to borrow some or get some donated from friends with children who have outgrown them.

If you only have a small amount, these work well for a guided math activity. Ask kids to show you certain fractions (like 1/3 or 2/5) and kids get practice making fractions as they build them. If you have lots of LEGOS, this could be done as a whole class lesson.

To use LEGOS or DUPLOS as a center game, you can put kids in groups of two. Each child rolls the dice twice, to determine the numbers in the fraction. The smaller number rolled is the numerator and the larger number is the denominator.

Kids use LEGOS to create that fraction using two different colors. For example, if a child rolled a 2 and a 5, the fraction is 2/5 and a tower could be made with two red LEGOS and three blue LEGOS for a total of five LEGOS.

After both students have built their fraction towers, use the More/Less Coin to determine the winner, who keeps the cards.

5. Playing Cards for Comparing Fractions

This is a game for two players. First, take out all of the face cards but leave the Aces, which will be used as ones. Students shuffle the cards and place them face down.

Each student chooses two cards and places them with the smaller card for the numerator and the larger card for the denominator. Students compare fractions by finding the common denominator.

Once the larger and smaller fractions are determined, I have students use the More/Less Coin described above to determine the winner. The winner keeps the cards and the person with the most cards at the end of the game wins.


6. Fraction Task Cards and Games

One of my favorite ways to reinforce math concepts is to use math task cards and games. Kids really enjoy playing in a game format and I can target the specific types of concepts and standards we need to practice. If you’re looking for pre-made task card sets for fractions, I have quite a few of them you might like.

7. Fractions About Us

I like to start this activity by doing a whole class lesson. I ask students different questions and we make fractions on our whiteboards based on the answers.

For example, if there are 28 students and I ask how many kids like popcorn, we might get a fraction like 27/28 kids like popcorn.

Or I’ll ask how many kids have brothers, walk to school, play basketball, like broccoli, etc. We make fractions for each one.

Then to switch it up a bit, I pull a group of four kids to the front and only ask them a question, which changes the denominator. Then I have them sit down and pull a group of six kids to the front to do another question. Again, reinforcing that the total number in the group is the denominator.

Once we’ve done that introduction, I put kids into groups of about five and give them a large piece of construction paper or a piece of anchor chart paper.

First, each child writes his/her name on the poster. Then, each child takes turns asking a question and recording the group’s answers in fraction form. Once everyone has had a chance to survey their group once or twice, it’s fun to let the kids do a Gallery Walk to see everyone else’s posters.


8. Domino Games

A. Compare Fractions

For this game, students place all of the dominoes face down. Each child chooses one domino and turns it so the numerator is smaller than the denominator. Using common denominators, students determine which fraction is smaller and larger. A More/Less Coin is used to determine the winner, who keeps the domino.


B. Equivalent Fractions

All of the dominoes are placed face down. Each student chooses a domino and on a whiteboard or scratch piece of paper, tries to write an equivalent fraction for that domino. For example, 2/3 = 4/6, or 8/12, or 16/24. To make it a game, each person who writes at least three equivalent fractions may keep their domino.


C. Improper Fractions

All of the dominoes are placed face down. Each student chooses a domino and places it with the larger number on top as the numerator and the smaller number as the denominator. This will make an improper fraction. Each student changes the improper fraction to a mixed number. Once done, use a More/Less Coin to determine who wins that round.

This unit explores the beginnings of proportional thinking by introducing fractions and associated language. The purpose for this unit is to make, name, and recognise wholes, halves, third parts, fourth parts and fifth parts of a variety of objects.  

Achievement Objectives

NA2-1: Use simple additive strategies with whole numbers and fractions.

AO elaboration and other teaching resources

NA2-7: Generalise that whole numbers can be partitioned in many ways.

AO elaboration and other teaching resources

Specific Learning Outcomes

  • count in fractions forwards and backwards to a named whole number.
  • recognise the whole of an object, part of an object and equal parts and their names.

Description of Mathematics

This unit is based on the work of Richard Skemp. His ideas for teaching fractions can be used successfully with year 2 students, and also with students up to year 8 who are having difficulty understanding fractions. Skemp’s use of the word ‘parts’ is deliberate in that he uses it to refer to ‘equal parts’ whereas bits refers to non equal parts.

The use of two different physical representations, the whole and parts of a whole, are used to develop the concept of a fraction. Language also plays an important role. Being able to count in fractions helps students understand that you can have 5 thirds or 6 halves.

Using denominators that are the same, students need to know:

  • a whole can be divided (partitioned) into equal parts eg one whole is equal to two half parts or 1 = 1/2 + 1/2
  • each of those parts can be put back together to make a whole eg. two half parts is equal to one whole or 1/2 + 1/2 = 1
  • parts can be joined to make a fraction less then 1 eg. one fourth and one fourth and one fourth is equal to three fourths or 1/4 + 1/4 +1/4 = 3/4
  • parts can be joined to make a number more than 1 eg. three fourths (quarters) and one fourth and one fourth is equal to one whole and one fourth or 3/4 +1/4 +1/4 = 1 1/4

This unit supports teaching and learning activities in the Student Fractions e-ako 1 and 2 and complements the learning activities in Book 7 Teaching Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.

Opportunities for Adaptation and Differentiation

This unit can be differentiated by varying the scaffolding provided and altering the difficulty of the tasks to make the learning opportunities accessible to a range of learners. For example:

  • Support students thinking by clearly and deliberately modelling how to partition a whole into equal parts, and the result of the partitioning.
  • Support students to describe the process of partitioning and their understanding of equal parts in their own words. Introduce mathematical terms naturally, alongside students explanations (whole, equal parts, fractional names such as one half and one third).
  • Use the terms “numerator” and “denominator” only once the underlying ideas are understood, and can be articulated in students’ own words.
  • Provide additional experiences of physically partitioning materials and discussing the resultant parts, until students understand the underlying ideas.

The context of equal shares can be adapted to recognise diversity and student interests to encourage engagement. Support students to identify and explore other situations in their lives where equal sharing occurs. For example, sharing kai at home or sharing cards to play a game (the pack of cards represents one whole).

Required Resource Materials

  • Plastic knives
  • Cutting boards or cut up rubbish bags on top of newspaper.
  • Five set loops
  • 3 sets of animals (these could be models or pictures)
  • Five food trays
  • Playdough recipe
  • Copymaster 1: Start, action, result boards 1
  • Copymaster 2: Start, action, result boards 2
  • Copymaster 3: Parts cards
  • Copymaster 4: Set names
  • Copymaster 5: Menu for each set (on separate cards)
  • Copymaster 6: Template for foods
  • Copymaster 7: Think board template
  • Copymaster 8: Think board for 3/5


Prior Experiences
  • Idea of fair shares
  • Know 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4 of shapes such as rectangles and circles
  • Doubles and their corresponding halves

Although the unit is planned around 5 sessions it can be extended over a longer period of time.

Session 1 

The purpose of this session is to develop students’ understanding of equal parts (the denominator).

  • Copymaster 1 
  • Playdough (see copymaster) 
  • Plastic knives
  • Cutting boards or cut up rubbish bags on top of newspaper.
  1. Ask the students how they would share a bale of hay (block of chocolate) between 4 sheep (4 people) fairly. Other contexts could be the sharing of pizzas but the shape of the rectangle is easier for students to cut into equal shapes. Introduce the word equal – what do you think it means?
  2. Distribute copies of the eels start, action, results boards (if it is possible it would be better to have 1 board between 2 students), some play dough and a plastic knife each.
  3. Have each student or pair of students make six equal sized round eels, by rolling 6 equal amounts of play dough. Put one eel in each of the outlines on the left hand side of the board. The eels are small as they have their heads and tails cut off. The eels we are making today are miniatures of the big eels. That means we are making small copies of the big ones.
  4. The following story can be used to guide students through the actions as described on the board.
    Hoepo and his brothers and sisters are at their Poua’s tangi and although they are sad they are looking forward to the hakari because eel is always on the menu.
    Hoepo is planning to go early to the marquee because he wants one eel all to himself. He is given one whole eel. Hoepo doesn’t know it but he is going to be one sick boy!
    The twins appear and they are told they have to share one eel evenly between the two of them. There are now two half parts.
    The triplets come next and Aunty Wai says we will have to cut another eel into three equal parts. There are now three third parts.
    Hoepo’s sister has come with her three friends. Aunty Wai says that they will have to cut the eel into four equal parts. There are now four fourth parts. Aunty Wai says they are also known as quarters.
    Hoepo’s five baby cousins are only allowed to eat small portions so Aunty Wai cuts the last eel into five equal parts. There are now five fifth parts.
  5. Ask the students to mark the lines and cut lightly then if they haven’t made equal parts they can smooth the play dough out and start again.
  6. After cutting, the separated parts are put in the RESULT column next to their descriptions.
  7. Ask the students to share with the person next to them what they can see. Hopefully someone may say «The more cuts we made the smaller the equal part» Prompt them towards that knowledge.
    I want you to look at one of the third parts and one of the fifth parts. Which is bigger?
    Have the students take one of each of the equal parts and put them on another blank board.
    Order the equal parts from smallest to biggest.
    Let’s say the names.
    Students should order from 1/5 – 1
    Put them back on the original board.
    How many halves are equal to the whole?
    How many fourths are equal to the whole?
    How many thirds are equal to a whole?
    How many wholes are equal to a whole?
    Depending on the age of the students symbolic notation can be introduced, using the terms like 1/2 and one half part interchangeably. 
  8. Repeat the steps above using the biscuits start, action, results boards and fresh play dough. The first boards should, if possible, remain on view. With this second board a variety of division lines are easily found, eg fourth parts.


  9. Repeat the steps above using the pies start, action, results boards. If possible, fresh play dough should be used, the other two boards remaining on view. The lines of division should be radial as shown below.
Session 2

The purpose of this session to develop the idea that parts of the same kind may not look alike. In Activity 1 this arose from the use of different objects. Here we see that this can be so, even with the same object.

  • Copymaster 2 
  • Play dough 
  • Plastic knives
  • Cutting boards or cut up rubbish bags on top of newspaper.

Revise knowledge about equal parts.
What can we remember from yesterday? Write students’ comments in your modelling book.

  1. Begin with the first page. This is used in the same way as the board for Activity 1. Ask students to complete the first 3 lines (making halves in three different ways). There are three simple ways see if you can find them.
    The three straightforward ways are:


  2. Next, they complete the next two lines (the third parts) which offers only two straightforward ways.
  3. Complete the second page (the fourth-parts). There are six ways of doing this which are fairly easy to find.
  4. Some students may want to go back to the halves board and see if they can find some more.
Session 3

The purpose of this session is to consolidate the concepts formed in Sessions 1 and 2, moving onto a pictorial representation.

  • Copymaster 3 
  • Copymaster 4
  1. Begin by looking at some of the parts cards from Copymaster 3 together. Explain that these represent the objects which they made from play dough in the last activity, eels, chocolate bars, biscuits and some new ones. They also represent the parts into which the objects have been cut, eg third-parts, fourth-parts, halves, fifth-parts. Some have not been cut: these are wholes.
  2. Shuffle the parts cards and spread them out on the table, face upwards.
  3. Give each student one of the set names from Copymaster 4.
  4. Each student should collect the parts cards that match the name of the set they have been given, for example, halves.
  5. Students check each other’s sets and discuss if necessary.
  6. Next, introduce Skemp’s mix and match game. This is a great game in that the students are consolidating what they know about denominator without being introduced to the word. Older students may have heard that word and it is important that they understand what it is. The denominator names the number of equal parts.
Rules of the Game

This game is best played by groups of 2-4 people.

  1. Share the parts cards from Copymaster 3 evenly between all players. Each player should have their cards in front of them in a single pile, face down.
  2. Place the mix and match card somewhere where all players to see it. The purpose of the mix and match card is to remind players of the directions in which they can build.
  3. The first player turns over their top card and places it in the middle of the playing area.
  4. Players take it in turns to turn over a card and place it alongside a card already on the playing area. When placing cards they must ensure that:
    • cards in a line in the ‘match’ direction are each split into the same number of parts (eg halves, thirds…).
    • cards in a line in the ‘mix’ direction are each split into different numbers of parts
  5. If a player can not place their card they put it back on the bottom of their pile and it is the next player’s turn.
  6. To make the game into a contest you can give a point to any player that makes ‘three in a row’ in either direction, and add a rule that says you can not have more than three cards in a row at any time. It is possible to gain 2 points by completing both a match and a mix by placing your card in the right place. The player with the most points wins.
Session 4 

The purpose of this session is to develop students’ understanding of a number of like parts (the numerator).

This is the next step towards the concept of a fraction. It is much more straightforward than that of session 1 -3 which involved (i) separating a single object into part objects (ii) of a given number (iii) all of the same amount. Here we only have to put together a given number of these parts and to recognise and name the combination

  • 3 sets of animals (these could be models or pictures)
  • Copymaster 5 
  • Copymaster 6 
  • Five food trays
  • Playdough
  • Plastic knives
  • Cutting boards
  • Five set loops
Warm up
  1. Count in halves up to a number such as 3.
    1/2, 2/2, 3/2, 4/2, 5/2, 6/2 (be prepared for students to carry on counting and not realise that 6/2 is equal to 3).
  2. Ask the students:
    How many halves did we count (six halves = three wholes, write on the board)
    How many halves do you think would equal 6? Write on the board
    How many halves do you think would equal 9? Write on the board
  3. Relate back to their knowledge of doubles and halves.
A Number of Like Parts

This is an activity for up to six students working in two teams. Its purpose is to introduce the concept described above.

  1. One team acts as animal keepers, the other works in the zoo kitchen. The latter need to be more numerous, since there is more work for them to do.
  2. A set of animals is chosen. Suppose that this is set 1. The kitchen staff look at the menu and set to work preparing eels, as in Making Equal parts. The animal keepers put the animals in their separate enclosures. They may choose how many of each. For example:


  3. The animal keepers, one at a time, come to the kitchen and ask for food for each kind of animal in turn. The kitchen staff cut the hay as required, eg
    Animal Keepers may say: Zoo Kitchen Staff may say:
    Food for 2 elephants please Here it is, 2 whole bales of hay
    Food for 5 giraffes please 5 third parts. Tell them not to leave any scraps.
    Food for 3 rhino please Here you are. 3 half parts from 2 bales of hay. There is one half part left.
    Food for 5 zebra please Here you are 5 quarters or 5 fourth parts.
    Food for 6 sheep please 6 fifth parts. Lucky sheep.
  4. Each time the animal keeper checks that the amounts are correct, and then gives its ration to each animal. The keepers also check each other’s work.
  5. When feeding time is over, the food is returned to the kitchen for reprocessing. Steps 1 to 4 are then repeated with different animals, keepers and kitchen staff.

Note that the eels, slabs, and hay should be of standard sizes.
Note also that the eels, after their head and tails are removed, resemble the eels in a cylinder shape and the slabs of meat and hay are oblongs.

Session 5

So far we have covered denominator and numerator without mentioning their names. Students need to understand that the denominator names the equal parts and numerator names the number of like parts. 

  • Copymaster 7
  • Copymaster 8 

Revise some of the ideas from sessions 1-4, selecting from these activities:

  • You may want to give them some unit fraction cards and ask them to order from smallest to biggest.
  • Give simple fraction addition problems to add below 1.
  • Give them a piece of paper and ask them to fold the paper into equal parts that they have chosen. For example, a student may chose to fold the paper into 4 equal parts. They need to verbalise what they have done. Ask them to tell you about three of the sections.
  • An activity for students if the symbolic notation has been introduced. Have a pack of cards which they can use to match pairs eg 1/4 goes with one fourth. When they have matched the cards ask each student to solve a simple addition problem for you.
    I want you to give me one fourth + one fourth (write on the board). Can anyone give me cards that mean the same but are written in a different way? (1/4 + 1/4)
    I want you to find one fifth and one fifth and one fifth. How many fifths are there? Can anyone give me cards that mean the same but are written in a different way? (1/5 + 1/5 + 1/5)
  • Give the students three problems to solve with a partner.
    What happens if we had to feed 5 giraffes and they were allowed 1/3 of a bale of hay each?
    What happens if we had to feed 5 rhinos and they are allowed 1/2 a bale of hay each?
    What happens if we had to feed 6 zebras and they are allowed 1/4 of a bale of hay each?

To conclude the session, ask the students to work in pairs and complete a think board (Copymaster 7 provides a blank think board and Copymaster 8 shows a completed example. ) Suitable fractions for think boards include 2 halves, 3 fourth parts, 2 fifth parts, 4 third parts, 2 quarters. Show them the example of a completed think board for 3/5.

Dear family and whānau,

This week we have been learning about dividing things into equal parts so people get fair shares. Please draw your child’s attention to any fractions you use over the week in cooking or when sharing kai or meals. For example if you are having pizza show them how it is sliced into 4 or 6 or 8 equal sliced parts. Ask them to help share out food when dishing up dinner or making lunches. They can draw pictures of the things you talk about and bring these to class to share.

As part of the implementation of the party project «United Russia» «New School», the head of the faction of the party «United Russia» Olga Volkova took part in the solemn assembly in Lyceum No. 4.

Solemn school assemblies are held in the city from 9:00. All of them began with the raising of the State flag and the performance of the Anthem of Russia.

Of course, the most attention on the school lineup was given to first-graders. Even yesterday’s kindergarteners proudly listened to the congratulations and instructions of teachers. We also prepared a small holiday program for the children. At the end, the first bell rang for the schoolchildren.

“We are very proud to see how smart and serious you are on the threshold of the school. I congratulate you on the day of knowledge and wish you a happy journey into the world of science and discoveries. I also want to separately congratulate our first graders. Today you will enter your class for the first time, sit down at your desks for the first time and teach your first lesson. I congratulate you on Knowledge Day and I want to say: don’t be afraid of anything, don’t worry about anything, everything will definitely work out, you will all make friends, it will be interesting and fun for you all to learn something new every day. Your parents were also once children and came to school unable to read or write. Go ahead, guys, for important knowledge, ”congratulated Olga Volkova.

The party project «New School» is aimed at supporting and developing the system of general, secondary, higher and additional education. Creation of new educational places through the construction of new schools, major repairs and reconstruction of existing ones, equipping with new modern equipment, switching to a one-shift mode of work with subsequent filling of the second half of the day with additional classes. At the same time, the party project also focuses on the aspect of raising the role and status of the teacher, educator, and the prestige of the teaching profession. An important sector of the work of the party project is preschool education, especially providing children under three years of age with places in preschool educational institutions. The party project controls not only the increase in the availability of preschool education, but also its quality. The party project also focuses on the content of the educational process, the observance of the rights of all participants in the educational process, as well as the creation of equal conditions for education for children, regardless of the territory of their residence.

In the LDPR faction in the State Duma, commenting on the death of the first president of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev, they noted that criticism has no place at the coffin, pointing out the need to remember «the lessons of the Gorbachev era. »

Let us recall that Gorbachev died at the age of 92 on Tuesday evening as a result of a serious and prolonged illness. In 1990, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his contribution to the peaceful settlement of relations between the USSR and Western countries.

The Telegram channel of the Duma faction stated that history has no subjunctive mood. At the same time, the “lessons of the Gorbachev era” should be remembered and everything should be done so that it “never happens again.”

The party also believes that the reaction to Mikhail Gorbachev’s death is «revealing». According to the parliamentarians, the best “friends” of our country, the British prime minister, the head of the European Commission, were the first to send condolences.
