Practice shading in shapes to represent a fraction and partitioning objects with these basic fraction worksheets.

## Fractions for 1st and 2nd Grade

When students are first diving into the concept of fractions, they first need to understand how to determine if parts of a shape are equal or unequal, as well as how to understand the meaning of one-fourth, one-half, etc. Students in this grade level also work on partitioning shapes into equal parts.

With the one-star version of this worksheet, students will practice coloring in one-half and one-fourth of different shapes. They also will practice partitioning shapes and shading in a given amount.

On the two-star version, students will partition all of the shapes and color in a given fractional amount.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:

If there are students that need an additional challenge, encourage them to complete the two-start version. Students can also work on writing fractions in number form as well as representing them on a number line.

For students who need additional support, consider assigning the one-star version. Additionally, encourage students to complete the worksheet with a peer tutor or a teacher.
