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.
