## Interactive Math Activity - Fractions of Shapes

Introduce your first grade students to basic fraction concepts in this interactive math activity from iKnowIt.com. Children will practice the fractions of shapes by answering a variety of engaging math questions in this online math game. Upon completion of this first grade math activity, your students will have gained confidence and proficiency in basic fractions of shapes.

Students will be presented with a variety of shape-based fraction questions in this interactive math lesson. For example, children may be asked, "What fraction of the shape is shaded?" They will fill in the blank with the correct numerator and denominator to complete the fraction answer. Or students may be asked a similar question presented as a multiple choice problem. Students will become familiar with fraction words, like one half, one third, one fourth, one fifth, and one sixth, two halves, two thirds, three quarters, and more. If students need a little extra help solving a math problem in this lesson, they can click on the "Hint" button. They will be shown a relevant pictorial or written clue that will point them in the right direction without giving away the answer. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will provide the correct answer accompanied by an easy-to-understand guide for achieving the correct answer. Students can thus move through the interactive math lesson learning from previous mistakes.

Every I Know It math activity, including this first grade activity featuring fractions of shapes, is equipped with several built-in tools to help students make the most out of their math practice sessions. A progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen shows children how many questions they have answered so far out of the total number of questions in the math activity. A score-tracker beneath that lets students see how many points they have earned for solving math problems correctly. Opposite, the speaker icon indicates the read-aloud feature. Students can click this button to have the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This is a wonderful resource for ESL/ELL students and children who excel with auditory learning. All of these helpful lesson features have been designed with your students' success in mind!
