Review fractions with your child with this fun food activity.
Read a book about fractions such as Eating Fractions by Bruce Mcmillan, Ed Emberley's Picture Pie: A Circle Drawing Book by Ed Emberley, Fraction Action by Loreen Leedy, Give Me Half by Stuart J. Murphy or Hershey's Fractions by Jerry Pallotta.
Then take a tortilla or pizza and have your child show you one-quarter, one-half and three-quarters either by breaking it apart or cutting or decorating the food with toppings. For example, you could have your child add pizza sauce to one-quarter, then half, then three-quarters, then the whole pizza. Then add fractional amounts of cheese and other toppings.
