Give Me Half!

Give Me Half! - Stuart J. Murphy, G. Brian Karas

In this book, a brother and sister are arguing over different items in their house. The story starts out with a pizza and the mother steps in to let them know that they need to share. Sharing the pizza continues on with also sharing items such as, juice, cupcakes, cookies, and even CLEANING! 

Give Me Half! introduces fractions in a fun and interesting way. It could be read to the class as a whole group before a math lesson on fractions. The teacher could have pizza cutouts in different sizes for the students to manipulate. The students could do some critical thinking and come up with other ideas of items that could be shared in the home.
