Mr. R.'s Fractions Song
if youtube is blocked, watch it here fraction fraction song

This one's about simple fractions- they're parts of a whole!
Have your students sing about halves, thirds, quarters, numerators and denominators!

Lyrics:

Fractions, fractions,
They’re parts of a whole,
Fractions, fractions,
They’re what I know…
They’re equal pieces,
They’re parts of a pie,
Fractions, fractions,
They’re alright!

Half a pie, half a tree,
Halves of different things, are different sizes you see,
But a half is a half, big or small,
It takes two halves, to make one whole

(You have Fractions when you have equal sized parts of a whole.
When it comes to halves, it takes two of them to make one whole!)

Fractions, fractions,
Parts of a whole,
Fractions, fractions,
Are what I know…
They’re equal pieces,
Parts of a square,
Fractions, fractions,
They’re right here!

Tells how many,
Parts there are,
Tells how many parts you got,
When you have parts,
Parts of the whole,
Fractions, fractions what you need to know…
1/3 of a pie,
1/3 of a bar,
Thirds of different things are different sizes by far,
But a third is a third,
Big or small,
It takes three thirds to make one whole!

(It takes 3 thirds to make one whole,
1/3 then 2/3rds, then 3/3rds- that’s one whole)

Fractions, fractions,
They’re parts of a whole,
Fractions, fractions,
They’re what I know
They’re equal pieces,
They’re parts of a pie,
Fractions, fractions,
They’re alright!

Numerator ‘Never Under’
On the top,
D for Denominator, always Down,
Numerator up,
Denominator down,
Fractions, fractions,
Are all around!

¼ pie,
¼ square,
1/4 + 3/4 make one whole right here!
And a quarter is a quarter,
Big or small,
It takes 4 quarters to make one whole!

Fractions, fractions,
They’re parts of a whole,
Fractions, fractions,
They’re what I know…
They’re equal pieces,
They’re parts of a pie,
Fractions, fractions,
They’re alright!
