Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares and describe the shares using the words halves,
fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe “the whole” as two of or four of the shares of circles and rectangles partitioned into two or four equal
shares.
 Explain that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares of circles and rectangles.
