Hello Teachers

Fractions, fractions, fractions. That's right ladies and gentlemen, it is a requirement within our curriculum s that we teach fractions. Children need to understand proportions, dividing and working out amounts using fractions.

How to add Fractions: here is a great example how to add fractions which have the same denominator (bottom fraction see below).

### How To Add When the Denominator is the same

I have created a simple cake clip art set best suited to Grade 3 or year 4. This set includes all the clips as seen here, including white pieces.
