Fractions can be one of the concepts that children struggle with the most - from understanding things like 2/4 is the same as 1/2 and 1 whole is 8/8 to sum's containing fractions and how to add and subtract. Setting the foundations in the first few years of school is essential and it's great to do that through games and other hands-on activities. Today I'm sharing our Pumpkin Pie Fraction Game which can either be played as "Snap" or as a Memory Game.
