Happy Spring! This is my stop on the Springing into Learning Blog Hop. Thank you to Elementary Antics for hosting this fun way to start Spring.
My students are springing into fractions in math right now. Something I like to do since it's close to Easter is give the students plastic eggs with jelly beans inside. The children sort their jelly beans and write fractional amounts for each color. They then write the fractional amounts on a number line. Each fractional amount on the line is written in the same color it represents.

I also created a spring themed printable for finding fractions of a set. This concept can be difficult for students at this age, so I made the first page interactive. You can guide the students through that page then have them complete the second page on their own. Click on the picture to download.
