Free Fraction Strips Template

Thanks to technology, we can easily create almost anything we can conceive of.  From gizmos to simple teacher-created resources, yes, teachers can make some really top-notch stuff!  If I can do it, then you can too. 
Fraction barsFraction BarsSee the fraction strips on the left? To make them, all I needed was a printer, assorted colors of card stock paper and regular white paper, a pair of scissors or a guillotine, clear tape, clear adhesive paper (or laminating machine) and my Free Fraction Strips Template

Just click here to download from TPT or here to download from TeachersNotebook. Suggested classroom activities are included and it's ideal for grades 2 - 3. To create, just follow these easy steps. Cut out each strip and make copies of each to be printed on separate colors of card stock( to color-code each fraction). Then laminate and cut out fraction strips or seal them with the clear adhesive paper. See other easy-to-make fraction stuff here at Nyla's Crafty Teaching.

If you are short on time, I have ready-made color coded Fraction Strips for Unit Fractions, Percents and Decimals. Just Print!

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!
