We are in our second year of homeschooling our 6 year old son. Today in math we covered fractions. I am AMS credentialed for ages 3 years to 6 years old (pre-k to k). However, I am not trained in Montessori elementary (yet) and so I tailored our lesson to suit our particular needs. I found a wonderful fraction worksheet at www.itsybitsyfun.com to compliment to our lesson.
Our son began to make some important discoveries such as 1/6 + 1/6 + 1/6 equals 1/2:
And 1/4 + 1/4 equals 1/2:
Here is a video of our lesson. 🙂 http://youtu.be/919eZCi2rG8
