Subject: Answer

You can teach your son fractions with monies, or even something within your home. Measuring to make cookies using measuring cup, half, whole, half teaspoon and so on. Or even half of a dollar, 10 of a dollar show him that the dollar is a whole with dimes or 2 half dollars. Also, telling him that his sock draw is on the bottom half of the dresser. Hope this helps!
