Fractions Mats: FREEBIE

Monday, September 26, 2016
Teaching fractions can be TRICKY! It's difficult for students to conceptualize fractions and find their true value. I created FREE Fraction Mats with fraction strips to guide student understanding of fractions!

I printed out enough fraction mats for each student in my small groups. Then I printed each page of strips onto different colored card stock. Of course, I laminated them and cut them all (a bit of a pain, I won't lie, but so very helpful). Here you can see how students can line up the fraction strips in order to find equivalent fractions.

Students can pull out the strips of fractions they need for various problems. In the beginning of fraction lessons, I often make my students show their work using the mats to build that conceptualization of what a fraction truly means. Once students have built that, students can then show their work in different ways.

  I store the strips in the amazing photo storage container I snagged from Michaels! You can grab them HERE at Amazon too! :)

I have to say these fraction mats have made a world of difference! Grab your FREEBIE now!
