Check out these  great Fraction links:

How to Make a Fraction Kit
(adapted from Marilyn Burns About Teaching Mathematics)


Use 5 different colors (I use yellow, blue, green, red, and pink) of long construction paper (12 X 18). Cut each piece of long construction paper into 4 strips (3 X18). Each child will need one strip of each color.

Have the students take a particular color (I use yellow), fold it in half, and cut it into two pieces. Have them label each piece at ½. Then choose the second color (I use red) and have them fold it in half, and then half again. Have them cut and label each piece as ¼. Then have them cut the third strip (I use blue) and label as 1/8 and the fourth strip (I use green) as 1/16. Leave the last strip (pink) whole and label 1/1.
