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!
