This blog post is a continuation of the last one I wrote about students struggling to learn their fractions. I provided you with things you could do at home, but I wanted to provide you with a few resources (Affiliate Links) that you could look at to support learning at home. As always, you do NOT need to purchase any of this. But, there may be a few people out there that really don’t know where to start, and this is mostly for you. However, there may be a few of you that have a lot of resources, but you may not have seen these either. Have fun looking! I hope this is helpful in your pursuit of educational materials to support your child in math. As always, keep the learning going!
