I found this little gem at Classroom Freebies. Have you been to Classroom Freebies? If not, then you are missing out! Charity Preston founded this network of educational blogs where teachers from all over contribute free resources to help teachers from K-12 and homeschool parents.
The fraction strips were made by Nyla of Nyla's Crafty Teaching blog. Head over to her site for directions and the file download. Click on the link above or click on the first photo to get there. I look forward to making these soon since we have a fractions unit coming up. I just love teaching fractions! One thing students have trouble with is comparing the sizes of different fractions and finding equivalencies. These strips are the perfect tool to use for this purpose.
I have been teaching for 18 years that have flown by. There is no job I'd rather do. My hubby and I have been married for 21 years. He is my best friend. Together we have three awesome and talented kids. Adrienne is 20, Maddie is 16, and Reid is 10. That youngest one keeps us on our toes!! Thank you for joining me on my adventures in teaching, weight loss, and eventually...digital scrapbooking. I love scrapbooking and used to be really into it when I had time. I'd like to go back to it someday. I also love to use coupons and find great deals!
