FRACTION WORKSHEETS FOR GRADE 2
It is important that when teaching fractions to Grade 2 students, several approaches should be used to engage students.
Using visuals such as bars and circles helps students to visually understand what a fraction looks like and how, for example, it
represents a part of a whole.
When teaching fractions, students are able to make concrete connections when real-life examples are used.
For example, cutting a pizza, apple into equal parts, clearly demonstrates what each part represents in terms of fractions.
Likewise, providing students with lots of opportunities to build their understanding of fractions by using hands on concrete materials is an integral part of learning fractions.
In Math Centers, provide students with engaging fractions games where your grade 2 students can play matching games, such as I Have Who Has?
At the end of the unit, use these worksheets as a fractions assessment.
The following activities are ideal to use in Fractions Math Centers:

This resource consists of teacher notes and the following 3 activities:
How to play:
•In small groups (divide cards equally amongst 4 students. Each student takes a turn to say ‘I have…Who has?’ The person with most cards in hand at the end wins!
•In partners: one student plays the ‘I Have’ cards and the other plays the ‘Who Has’ cards
•Individual (cards are placed face down and student turns one card at a time to find a match. If the cards are not a match, the cards are placed face down once again)
How to play:
• In small groups of three
• Two students receive a ‘Bingo Playing Card’ each and the third student calls out the fraction cards
• Each player receives 8 counters each
• Players use a counter to cover their fraction when it matches the one that’s been called out.
• The player who covers all their turkey fractions first must call out BINGO and is the winner!
3. (there are 3 components to this resource):
1. Students click the digital link to watch an engaging fractions mini-clip
