Fractions Rule, Fraction Rules (2nd Grade)

Why not give students early exposure to fractions? We start using rulers in early elementry grades. Why not put easily readable fractions on those rulers? Some students will pick it up sooner than others, but in all cases it is priming the mental pump for exposure to fractions in middle elementary school. The picture today is of a Victor ruler with brilliant hot pink background and a fraction caliper from Vinca. These are two must have investments in my classroom.  

 The play on words might be lost to the current generation, but "fractions rule" (they are really great, also, they are on a ruler - terrible puns today).
