Many teachers have heard of the Hershey’s Chocolate Bar book that introduces fractions. Sometimes teachers don’t have space in their room to have the kids sit on the floor when you read a book (I was one of those teachers). But I had a doc camera and a projector! I made a PowerPoint that works in conjunction with the book to introduce fractions. I also used different colored leaves from outside on our school grounds and had kids use the color of the leaves to make fractions.
*2021 UPDATE: GoogleDocs has updated some things that have made it hard to share some of my oldest files. I’m trying my best to go through this blog and re-upload my oldest files, but I haven’t gotten to all of them yet. Thanks for your patience.
