Paper plates may not be good for eating off of but they are indispensable materials for art projects.
To help my oldest with fractions I took a bunch of plates and painted them to illustrate different fractions.
I then had him label them.
We used them in a variety of games. Like hopscotch and a version of twister.
I would call out different fractions and actions and he had to follow directions. He had a blast and it really helped him with the concept.
Now I have to find a way to teach him how to get his socks into the laundry basket... any suggestions?
After he got the wiggles out I taught him how to add fractions using the plates as a visual.
