• ### Activity 1 / Find Halves Worksheet

Can your child tell you what it is called when a whole shape is cut up into two equal parts? What about three equal parts? And four parts? If they can tell you what these are called, then you can give yourself a pat on the back. However, if there is still some confusion about what two equal parts are called, this simple worksheet will help clear up some of the remaining confusion. When a whole shape is cut up into two equal parts, the parts are called halves. Each of the halves is called one half. Help your child check all the pictures in this printable pdf showing halves.

• ### Activity 2 / Cutting in Halves Worksheet

Ask your child if they know that whole shapes can be cut up and divided to form smaller parts. Explain how a whole shape, such as a square, can be cut into smaller pieces to form fractions. And, when a whole shape is divided into two equal parts, these parts are called halves. In the worksheet, there are pictures of examples of whole shapes, fractions, and halves. Look through the printout with your child and check all rectangles that are cut in two equal parts ½.

• ### Activity 3 / Wholes and Halves Worksheet

Fractions can be a cause of great stress to your students. After all, they have probably just only mastered the art of counting and adding, and now they have to deal with fractions and halves. Take some of their stress off by using this colorful worksheet to explain to them what whole shapes are, and how to easily identify halves. Ask them to identify the whole in the free printout and which shape is the half by drawing a line to the matching word.

Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
