Gigantic Fraction Strips... you need these!!!

I started teaching fractions a few weeks ago in math.  Our math series comes with individual fraction strips for students to manipulate.  Unfortunately, these strips break apart and many of the pieces have been lost.  I really wanted a set of gigantic fraction strips without paying a fortune, so I decided to make my own!
I made the fraction strips in four different sizes.  The extra large strips (11 x 17) are used for teaching whole class lessons.  They're perfect for the large white board in front of my whole group area.  The large fractions strips (8.5 x 14) are used on my portable white board easel.  The medium fraction strips (11 x 8.5) are used at the table during my guided math groups.  Finally, the small fractions strips (8.5 x 11) are for students to keep in their math folder.

Once the strips are printed, laminated, and cut, magnetic strips can be placed on the back for use on the white board.

Or strips can be printed, laminated, and cut into fraction pieces.  The great thing is when a piece is lost, simply print it again.  No more missing fraction pieces!!

The fraction strips are available in color and black & white!

I printed the black & white strips from my computer straight to the copier at school.  The small, medium, and large colored strips were printed on my personal printer.  Since the school copier does not print in color, I had the extra large fraction strips made at my local print shop.  The total cost for printing and laminating was under $4.00!

  1. This is such a fun idea! I'm working on doing something similar with note durations :) It would fun to do an integrated project with music meter and fractions using these strips.

  2. These are great! I am in the process of getting my teaching degree and right now I work at an after school program. I see students struggle with understanding fractions and these would be such a great and fun manipulative to be able to use with them.
