FREE How to Reduce Fractions Visual

Bulldozer has really struggled to understand fraction concepts, especially reducing fraction.  He already knows all of his basic math facts which has helped in huge ways, but when everything is applied to factions he gets confused.

Creating visuals that help him through each fraction process has been huge!

Over time I'm sure concepts will sink in more. They will make more sense to him. But for now, that extra visual means the world to him as he desperately wants to continue to learn all about fractions.

Today I'm exited to share our How to Reduce Fractions Visual with you!

The How to Reduce Fractions Visual has been a life saver for the kids.  Any time they are hesitating moving forward with the process of reduction, they pull out this visual.

If they forget what to do, they don't have to rely on me to show them. They can use this visual and figure it out themselves.

The visual is broken down into four simple steps to make each reduction problem as easy as possible.

My kids LOVE the last step as they are really big into prime numbers right now.  One of their favorite games is Prime Climb.  Oh how I love when they enjoy working with numbers!
