__Fraction Websites for First, Second, and Third Grade__These are some of my favorite fraction websites to introduce or review basic fraction concepts including identifying, naming, and comparing fractions.

**Pizza Fraction**

Enter the cafe and decide whether the pizza is divided into fair shares.

**Fraction Shoot**

This site does have ads on either side of the game (I don’t usually like these), but it does have student decide whether shapes are divided into equal or
unequal parts.

**Fraction Bowling**

Students click to color in part of a shape. and then write
the fraction. If they are correct a bowling pin appears. When they get all
their bowling pins, the ball knocks them down. Shapes are divided into up to 12 parts, but a
nice site to review naming fractions.

**Cross the River**

Given a fraction (parts of a whole) student select the
correct fraction so that the boy can cross the river. I love the little music
that plays when he crosses the river, get ready to boogie.

**Fraction Concentration**

Match the fraction to the picture.

**Fraction Flags**

Create colorful flags by coloring the fractional part.

Select easy and each problem has the same denominator. This
shows fraction on a number line (actually a telephone line). If the answer is
correct, a bird lands and lays an egg. Feedback is given if the answer is
incorrect. Nice as a linear mode.

This site has four different levels and can used whole group or individually. It starts very basic starting with selecting the number of slices of pieces needed. The highest level has students find equivalent fractions (with picture support).

Mendall’s Magic Math Market

http://e-learningforkids.org/Courses/EN/M0901/index.html. It does move into decimals quickly – but I would use the first section to
demonstrate to students just learning about fractions.

Cookies for Grampy

Make cookies for Grampy by selecting the correct fractional parts. No bells and whistles but nice to compare equivalent fractional parts of a circle.

HI Kathy! Stopped by for a visit and I am so glad I did. The Interactive Fractions sites are just what I need! Thanks for going through all the work of finding them.
