Fraction Strips for Fractions, Percents and Decimals

Free-Fraction-Bars

Hi guys! This is my latest freebie (just click on the picture above). They are my free fraction strips. Feel free to download the template and try them out with your students!

I also have a similar version that not only has fraction strips but percent strips and decimal strips too! These Fraction Strips are handy for discovering equivalency between fractions, decimals, and percents. Each card is color-coded allowing students to make connections when they see relational card values for proper fractions, percents, and decimals. For example, ¼, 25%, and 0.25 are always yellow.

Fraction word name cards are also included to help students learn how to pronounce the numbers correctly. 
The cards included can be used to focus on just one skill (e.g. percents) or use the cards together to learn equivalencies. 


Extra copies can be made to allow students to cut out the fraction tiles and use them to create word problems.  All Fraction Strips are available in whole, halves, thirds, quarters, fifths, sixths, eighths, tenths and twelfths. The same goes for their decimal, percent and word-name counterparts. Everything here is also included in black and white form for ease of making photocopies. The colored sheets can be printed and laminated or they can be printed on transparency paper to make transparencies for use with a projector.


See it here at TPT or here at TeachersNotebook!

I'd also like to share that I found these wonderful fraction books on amazon that are beyond the introductory level and are perfect for grades 3 to 5.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
