Free Fraction Strips Template

These are just a few of the stuff I create when I have the time to spare.  I use them in centers for my class.
 Fraction Strips - The students cut them up and mix and match different pieces to solve addition of common fractions, mixed numbers etc.

 Rectangular Area Models and Strip Cut-outs

Circular Fraction Area Models and Sectors

See the fraction strips below? 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

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!
