Fractions Wanted

Grade 3 students created "Wanted" posters for fractions. Their writing was used to make the lyrics for the song below.

Breaking news Fraction 1/3
Escaped from Fractionville jail
Robbed a third of the bank
Disguised as 4/12
Does 1/3 of the work
In 1/3 of the time
Police can’t find him
Help us bring him back

Call *3333
Reward is 1/3
Reward is 1/3 of 90 cents
33%
When you bring him in
And the rest when he’s in jail

His partner, 1/2
Also got away
Disguised as 4/8
He’s tricky to find
He’s half purple
Eats half-cakes
Answers to 0.5
And looks half his age

Call *5000
Reward is half
Reward is a half of 20 cents
50%
When you bring him in
And 10 cents when he’s in jail

1/4 wanted
a.k.a. 3/12
or 25 cents
Known to be dangerous
A quarter of the time
Be very careful
He’ll steal your quarters
And half your cookies

Call *2500
Reward is half
Reward is a half  of 40 cents
25%
When you bring him in
And 30 cents when he’s in jail
