Product Description
This highly versatile resource has everything you need to make a variety of manipulative fraction tools for your students! It contains the following mix 'n match components:

Anchor Charts
There are 12 full-page anchor charts to help you introduce concepts during whole or small group instruction. These charts give step-by-step instructions for using the printable fraction tools in this resource for a variety of purposes. Topics covered:
- Basic fraction concepts & terms
- Partitioning fractions with pattern blocks
- Comparing fractions & writing inequality statements using 1) fraction tiles, 2) laminated number line card
- Adding/subtracting fractions with like denominators using 1) fraction tiles, 2) laminated number card
- Determining equivalence using 1) fraction tiles, 2) laminated fraction wall

The anchor chart section of this resource also includes full-sized versions of the fraction number line & fraction wall cards (options: labeled and unlabeled). Most of the anchor charts are shown in the preview download file.

Student Reference Cards
Reference cards are in a 4-per-page format so you can easily make class sets. All of the above-mentioned anchor charts, including the fraction walls & fraction number line cards, are also included as 4-per-page student reference cards. These cards are core components for the DIY fraction kits shown in the preview file, as you can mix and match them with the various fraction tools from this resource.

For example, if you'd like to make a resource for teaching students to use fraction number lines to add/subtract fractions with like denominators, you'd use the following:
- Reference card for the anchor chart that shows how to add/subtract with fraction number lines
- A laminated fraction number line card
- HIghlighters (preferably in 2 different colors)
- Small sponge or cloth
- Ziploc bag to hold the kit's contents

You can use these kits in guided math groups, then send them home with your students so they can use them in conjunction with their homework. Download the preview file to see picture examples of several different student kits.

Printable Fraction Tools
This resource includes the following printable fraction tools:
- Fraction Strips (you can cut them up to make fraction tiles). Strips for all fractions from 1 whole to 12ths have been included. You can choose to print all of them, or just print the strips for benchmark fractions. There are 13 strips of each fraction per page, so you can make complete fraction strip sets for 26 students using 24 pieces of cardstock (two pieces of each color).

- Fraction Pattern Blocks - print them on colored cardstock for instant pattern block sets to use in your classroom or take-home kits. I've arranged the blocks in tight formations on the pages to reduce the amount of cutting involved. Includes 1 page each of the following pattern blocks: hexagons, trapezoids, isosceles triangles, quadrilaterals ("brown" fraction pieces), and right triangles ("purple" fraction pieces). I did not include pages for the skinny rhombus or square because those pieces can't be used to partition hexagons into fractions.

- Hexagon Template pages - these are designed to be used in conjunction with the fraction pattern blocks. They're perfect for teaching students to partition fractions into halves, fourths, sixths, or twelfths. There is one page with whole hexagons and one page each with hexagons split into halves, fourths, sixths, and eighths. I've also a "variety" page with all of the template types on one page.
