National Day Calendar Classroom - May 2020 - Fractions

CLASSROOM – Fractions

A pizza party inspires a lot of things in the classroom, including fractions. This week National Pizza Party Day gets our math brains working as we dive into our favorite kinds of pizzas while making all our guests happy, too! As you know, we like to celebrate, and when it comes to pizza, it’s a popular celebration food. Any way you slice it, fractions and pizzas go well together.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Download and print this week’s project. Share it with parents and guardians to do at home or incorporate them into an assignment. Be sure to check out all the other puzzles and project pages in the National Day Calendar Classroom, too. We add new pages every week for other days we are celebrating! Invite parents and guardians to join the class, too. We have plenty of fun and engaging activities for everyone to #CelebrateEveryDay!

Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.

THIS WEEK’S PROJECTS

Pizzas are a fun way to study fractions. Whether students practice fractions at home or in the classroom, they can take part while making homemade pizza or make-believe ones. Encourage the adults in their lives to incorporate fraction questions while baking, making sandwiches, and filling glasses for their meals. Everywhere is a learning opportunity. Learn doesn’t just take place in the classroom. Children are curious ALL the time, not only while they are at their desks in a school. Make the kitchen, the back yard, walks in the park part of the classroom, so your children are always learning. Trust us; their brains are always on.

This week’s project is a hands-on activity that can be easily translated to the kitchen and a real pizza party, too! Download and print the Pizza Pie Fraction Party project to practice fractions with your students. When you get hungry, make a real pizza!
