Fun with Fractions

Right now we're tackling fractions. The students are so keen on this. I think being able to use words like fraction or tenth makes them feel like the "big kids" and they're pretty proud of themselves. We are currently focusing on fractions of a set. I created a tasty activity for them to practise these skills...

The students get a set of "fractional instructions" to follow in decorating their own cupcakes on the first page, and early finishers create their own set of decorative cupcakes by creating their own fractional instructions! I gathered a great deal of data watching for who clearly understands fractions, and who requires more work on this.
