I love integrating art into my classroom whenever possible. This year, I was introduced to a great project by my 4th grade team. It's called Fractional Me.

Fractional Me is a portrait created out of small squares. (I taught a few students to use the di-cut machine and they just went to town.) Students are only allowed to use whole and half squares for ease of counting later on. They construct their portrait and are then responsible for determining the fractional amounts of squares for each color. They turn out really cute and with so much personality. We added googly eyes just to make them more fun.

Don't you just love the belt in the last picture?

Bottom row, middle... looks like Conan! lol

I love this idea! How big are the squares you used?

ReplyDeleteWe used 1-inch squares. We have a di-cut at school which is very helpful. :)

DeleteSo fun! My teammates and I found this on Pinterest today and we're planning to do a version of it tomorrow for Friday's community math. Thanks so much. I'm your newest follower. :)

Fabulous Finch FactsI wish I had found this idea earlier for my students who are learning about fractions. Thanks soooo much for the idea. Will be back to visit

ReplyDeleteI teach 5th grade. I would love to do this but I am trying to think how I can "ramp" it up to make it higher order for this grade level! I love this. I just found something like this for area and permiter where they draw robots and have to figure out the area and permiter of the total drawing. :) Fun stuff for hands on learning!

ReplyDeleteOK - since most of your posts were in April, I feel a little late, but I am joining the bandwagon. This is is stinkin' cute and perfect for me third graders. I am SO STOKED about using this as a concluding activity for our fraction study. Now if I just figure out how to show your class's examples to my kiddos.....

ReplyDeleteLove this! Also pinned and on the list for next year!!! :)

ReplyDeleteThis is such a great project! The kids love it and every single one of them always turns out cute. Hope your class likes it as much as mine. :)

DeleteWe just completed this activity for our 100th lesson in Saxon math. My fifth grade students loved it. I linked back to your blog, and I'm sending a BIG thanks for sharing this CLEVER lesson.

I also love your idea! I adapted this for 5th grade. Can I also link back to you from my blog?

ReplyDeleteThis is so cute! We just started our fraction unit and I am going to get this in. :) Was the background paper 1/2 of a full size construction paper? Any stipulations on how many colors they had to use, or did you just let them go? Excited to try this, so any helpful tips would be great. :) Thank you!!

ReplyDeleteThis is a great idea - thank you for sharing it!

ReplyDeleteThis is such a great idea! Can't wait to do when we get to adding fractions. Thanks so much for sharing!
