      This concept can be introduced in 1st and 2nd grade with small numbers, then increased to larger numbers as the child becomes more comfortable with multiplication of whole numbers. It's easy when you can SEE it! See www.educationunboxed.com for more videos!

        It is so important, with concepts like this that are often confusing for kids, to NOT tell them the rule first. Let them SEE why the fraction with the larger number in the denominator is actually a smaller piece. Cuisenaire Rods are a great way to do this - especially because they are tactile materials, not just drawn pictures. Concepts first. Rules and procedures second.

          This is just a quick overview of where we're going with fractions using Cuisenaire Rods. If you are confused, you need to get your hands on the rods. When I first tried to figure out how to teach fractions with the rods, I thought it was impossible… until I actually sat down and played with them several times (along with reading several books!) and now I'm starting to see how it all works. I'm still in the midst of processing it all so you'll be following me on this journey of discovering fractions conceptually! Please see www.educationunboxed.com for more videos!

            I apologize for the chaotic nature of this video. I should have sent them out to run around first, apparently! Try to ignore all the random noises and I'm sure you'll get something out of this! This is just a brief introduction to the idea of "completing the square." We will add more to this eventually, but I just want them to get the idea of dividing the coefficient of "x" in half and then squaring that number to complete the square. Obviously they need a few more times of this for it to really sink in! Please see www.educationunboxed.com for more videos!

                This activity helps bring the child's work with the 3-dimensional Cuisenaire rods down to 2-dimensional paper. It is important that children understand that every fraction represents a point on the number line. This is one way to help develop that understanding.

                  A simple way to introduce "Improper Fractions" using Cuisenaire Rods. It's best to do this activity first with only white rods and your "one" rod. My daughter has worked with fraction concepts using Cuisenaire rods for a couple months so she understands that she can just use a purple rod in place of 4 white rods to represent 4 as the numerator. If this is confusing to you, get the rods out and do this activity yourself! It really does help! Please see www.educationunboxed.com for more videos!
