An Effective and Inexpensive Fraction Manipulative

Recommended Posts

I bought a package of foam circles at WM. We have divided them into halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, eighths, tenths, and twelfths, and written the fraction on each piece with a Sharpie. These have worked like magic, and cost less than $3. This was much less than the hair replacer I thought I was going to need :laugh:!

Can I recommend legos as well?  I'm a classroom teacher and this worked nicely for my first graders and I can imagine they would work for any grade.  If you search Lego Fractions on pinterest, you'll get some very cute and effective examples.  If you have any legos at home... it's free :-)
