Children need lots of practice with manipulatives to develop number sense and understand math concepts. Use these FREE fraction bars to help children solve identifying and comparing fractions problems.
These fraction bars are for any children learning to identify and/or compare fractions (typically children ages 6-10). Children need a lot of time using math manipulatives to develop number sense and understand math concepts, especially difficult concepts like fractions.
There are 4 sheets of fraction bars included in this set:
Blank – Black & White
Blank – Color
Labeled – Black & White
Labeled – Color
Children can color and label fraction bars as part of the lesson or you can print them out already colored and labeled. Once they are cut apart fraction bars can be rearranged to help students compare a variety of fractions and different ways to make one whole. You can ask a variety of questions based on what they see or use them to supplement fraction lessons are games you already have.

This is such a great reusable set. I used it with clear paper sleeves for my daughter and plan on using it next year when my boys are ready for fractions. Simple and fun!

About the Seller
Not Your Mother's Math Class
I have over 15 years experience working with elementary aged students. My specialty is making math products.
Math can and should be fun.
Learners need lots and lots of practice with manipulatives and hands-on strategies before they can solve abstract problems.
We need to let children explore concepts and not force them to memorize formulas to solve problems.
