If only I could loose, Just a fraction of weight. Then a pretty dress I could choose, To wear to the party on Saturday at 1/4 to Eight. We came to the conclusion A fraction is part of a whole number, So to save any confusion We practiced chopping up a cucumber, Sixteen pieces,, So 1/2 would be Eight 1/4 would be four 3/4 would be twelve, I will start slowly, not put as much on my plate Just a fraction of food to lose weight. A Poem on Fractions
A story on fractions Mickey wishes on the first star he sees, but instead of the dollar he hopes for, he gets only a quarter. The next night his little friend Donald wishes for a cookie—and gets just half of one.
Next morning Mickey is a quarter richer. He wishes again, while Donald asks for a cookie. Mickey receives another quarter and Donald gets half a cookie. At this point, Goofy and her twin Woofy get in on the wishing. But each receives only an eighth of their wish. Putting their heads together, they determine that their ages are the key, and that if they all wish for the same thing, they can get one whole.
