Tiled Area Questions are designed to provide students with the opportunity to compose and decompose numbers.  This post primarily focuses on fractions.  However, if you are a K-2 teacher, please be watching for a modification that will make these resources extremely useful for you.

Watch the video, download the resources, and give your student the opportunity to visualize, decompose, compare, and compose numbers.
