Description: Looking for a fun way to review fractions, 2D shapes with audio options? Your kids will be chirping about these tiny chicks shaped like parallelograms, pentagons, hexagons, and more! They’ll solve multiple-choice, drag-and-drop, fill in the blank, and matching problems. There is an equal mix of easy, medium, and challenging questions. The questions start off easy and gradually progress to more difficult ones. The easier questions are worded in such a way as to help kids prepare for the harder ones. Some chicks disappear into the barn; others are hatching from eggs. From chirping chicks to mooing cows, the sounds will keep your kids engaged and entertained. Even the Easter bunny makes a brief appearance. With 21 slides and 48 questions in total, your kids will have lots of chances to hone their fraction and shape skills. Don't worry if your kids have forgotten everything you have taught them about these topics - the chicks will help guide them along the way. IMPORTANT: Did you know that the language used to describe fractions can affect how well students understand them? Numerous studies have shown that using phrases like "out of three, one" or "one out of three" were more helpful than using "one third" or "1/3" for promoting student understanding of fractions. To help your students learn about fractions, phrases like "out of four, three" or "two out of five" are intentionally incorporated into many of the questions.
