If you’re trying to find a concrete way to explain fractions that will grab your child’s attention, try creating Lego Fractions.
For this post, I’m using 3/4 as the example.
Get out your Lego or Duplo building blocks and explain that fractions are just a way of saying how much of something there is. Then make this:
Say, “See? Three out of 4 blocks are red. That’s what it means when we say ¾.” Now ask them something like, “What if I had 8 blocks? How would I show ¾ of 8?”
Keep going for as long as interest holds. Then let them create.
