Spotting Fractions - Background Learning

Learning to spot fractions is one of the first things that children should be learning. It links fractions of things to everyday life, and helps them to anchor their understanding of fractions into the world around them.

In the image above, we can see that there are 8 butterflies. 4 of them are blue, 3 of them are yellow and 1 of them is orange.

This gives us the fractions as follows:

4/8 of the butterflies are blue;

3/8 of the butterflies are yellow;

1/8 of the butterflies are orange.

Using these sheets will help your child to: spot fractions of different objects and quantities.
The sheets on this page are graded, so the first 3 sheets are easier and have more support than the later sheets.
