• This is such a good idea!! I love the alliteration also. I also see how this could be a great smart board lesson with dragging the pepperonis onto the pizza. My 5th graders would love this and I foresee myself using something like this in the future :)

• Pizza is such a perfect way to present this concept! You could translate that into homework assignments ('At dinner tonight, point out different fractions of food'). I agree with Laurie's comment: Pizza Pete, the Fraction family, and a whole host of characters would be a creative, engaging way to present your curriculum. --Kelly McKinley

• Incorporating the activity in which students can manipulate the toppings on the pizza is a cute way of engaging the students. I also loved the story and think it is a great way of teaching fractions.--Courtney Murray

• This is wonderful! Pizza Pete's adventures could continue into other teaching lessons as well, such as Graphing pizza toppings, grouping orders, multiplying tips! I see so many possibilities! - Laurie Schroeder

• This is such a fun way to learn fractions. I may have paid more attention in school if it was explained liked this. I like the fact you have the fractions next to the picture and then the kids are asked to fill out the side that is equivalent to the picture. What a great idea!

So off the Fractions went to Pizza Pete. 4 1/4 1/2 3/4
5. 5. When the Fraction family arrived at Pizza Pete’s, Pete greeted them with a big smile. He offered a nice whole pepperoni pizza for dinner.
