We are just starting our fractions unit!  There are so many great resources out there if fractions are confusing you (or your child).  There are also lots of fun games to play.  It's a long unit, so we'll take our time with it, but feel free to check out all of the fraction topics when you're ready for them.

Please check out some helpful free videos from Khan Academy or check out the link to my posting about other fun fraction sites: here
