## Hands-On Mathematics Curriculum Activity

As your child continues to develop their mathematical skills, it's important to introduce them to the concept of fractions. By identifying one half and one quarter of different shapes through colouring, they will begin to understand how fractions work in a tangible way. This activity is a great way to make learning maths fun and interactive for children. Here are some additional tips to help your child learn about fractions:

• Use real-life examples to help your child understand fractions, such as cutting a pizza into slices or dividing a cake into pieces.
• Encourage your child to practice dividing objects into halves and quarters in everyday situations, such as sharing snacks with friends or dividing a toy between siblings.
• Play games that involve fractions, such as "Fraction Frenzy" or "Fraction Bingo."
• As your child progresses, introduce more complex fractions such as thirds and fifths, and show how they relate to everyday objects and situations.
• Remember, learning fractions is an important part of developing mathematical skills, and with fun activities like this one, your child will be well on their way to mastering this important concept.
