A Feast of Fractions

We will start fractions after February Vacation.  I have started gathering materials.  My students always have difficulty grasping this concept and I want to be prepared.

Here are some trade books that are good for intermediate students:





The more manipulatives and Hands-on...the Better!



Fraction Fringe





Learn the parts of whole and equivalent fractions through a clever hands-on manipulative, perfect for each student to keep handy for skill-building in math class. (Grade 1-6)  Cut out on the Ellison Machine.





Here are some great ideas that I have used in the past and some new ones that  I have collected:
