This sounds like a wonderful way to use the computer when teaching fractions.  I am sure that the students really enjoy using kid pix.  I wonder if the students could create a key note or a poster in pages and to present about their fraction to the class.  The students might be able to use real life pictures of pizza slices from google?

This lesson provides several great ways to expose students to beginning fraction concepts.  I would make sure that students work in pairs or groups with the popsicles and fraction bars, before working independently on their pizza.
