    This 61-pc set allows children to work tactilely with fractions by applying them to circles. Plastic pieces include an avocado green whole, blue halves, green thirds, peach fourths, magenta fifths, orange sixths, pink eighths, highlighter green tenths, and purple twelfths. A transparent cylindrical box with lid holds the whole set. Show equivalents by placing the whole piece in the bottom and see what combinations of other fractions will fill the circle. You could also enhance the pieces by adding magnets to the back. ~ Ruth

    Understanding fractions is often one of the most challenging math concepts for our children to grasp. All of us have heard the value of cutting a pizza or pie as a helpful visualbut let's be honest; it is not always convenient to bake a pie for our children to cut into pieces! These practical fraction circles are practically perfect for learning fractional concepts: soft, durable, colorful and best of all, reusable (unlike pie!) Containing the most commonly used fractions: halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths, tenths, twelfths, along with one whole, these foam circles clearly display fraction sizes and are a great asset for teaching fraction concepts such as less than and greater than. Older children can also quickly build fraction addition and subtraction problems to be able to see the correct response. An essential tool to supplement math lessons. Whole circle is 3 3/8 inches in diameter and each fraction circle is a different bright color. 51 pieces total in resealable plastic bag. ~ Deanne

    Let them eat cake! Or at least let them play with magnetic circles that are cut into fractions. Nine different cakes (each with different decorations) are divided into fractional pieces that kids can manipulate to create whole "cakes." Bright colors are labeled with the appropriate fraction. The set includes these cakes: 1 whole, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8, 1/10, and 1/12. Kids will think they are just playing as they learn that you can put one-half, one-fourth, and two-eights in one whole cake. Put these on the side of your fridge, desk or file cabinet as colorful, informational decor. Use them to present fractions and then let kids make their own "fraction cakes" and present them to you. This is very cute and useful. ~ Sara

    This little write-and-wipe book comes with everything you need for a hands-on experience with fractions. It holds six plastic circles, one whole and the others split into halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and eighths. Before opening the book, children can play with the fraction pieces. Then they work through the book, which introduces them to fractions and then presents them with simple fraction problems. The text shows children how to use the fraction pieces to answer the questions. A write and wipe marker is included. Children can work through this book again and again as they begin to work with and understand fractions. - Melissa

       Understanding fractions is often one of the toughest concepts for children to conquer. Sure, they pick up halves, quarters and wholes easily, but transferring that understanding to numbers larger than 1 often presents a challenge. This vital set builds upon children’s basic understanding and teaches them how to work out the fractional part of any given quantity. For example, find 3/4 of 20 or 4/6 of 30. Best of all, it does not ‘tell them’ how to solve the fractional equation, rather it shows them how and gives them opportunities to master the concept through hands on activities! Set includes color coded foam shapes to make 5 polygons: circle, rectangle, square, pentagon and hexagon. Five foam dice are color coded to match polygons; 20 fraction cards (1/2 -6/6) and 36 plastic pegs are included. The enclosed instruction pamphlet provides 3 levels of guidance. In stage 1, Understanding Basic Fractions, children use cards and polygons to solidify basic understanding. In Stage 2, Fractions of Quantities, children use fraction cards, die and polygon to solve equations involving fractional quantities. Stage 3 summarizes Support and Reinforcement. Excellent resource to help children “see’ and master fractional quantities. Cardboard box for storage included. ~ Deanne

    Here's a great tool for making your own math practice sheets. This CD-ROM includes characters for addition problems to 10, angles, basic math, clocks, counting beans, currency, division problems using the number 10, fraction circles and rectangles, measurement rulers, multiplication through 10, place value, seasons, subtraction through 10, and weather conditions and symbols.

    The installation is pretty easy - simply pop the disc into your drive and it should install automatically. If it doesn't, there are instructions to help you out. When you are ready to make a worksheet, click on the 'format' button on your tool bar, click 'font,' and choose the type of practice you want for this project. There are some short cut suggestions offered in the front flap of your package, but I found it easier to use the 'insert' button on your tool bar. You will need to use a much larger font size (I used 72) if you are making the worksheet for a younger child. I also found that the only way I could tell what the coins were suppose to be for the currency symbols was to print them quite large. The time savings really comes in when you can just insert whole addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems, rather than making them up yourself. I also like that you can insert sections of the ruler (for measurement) and they will appear connected.

    This CD is compatible with both Windows and Macintosh computers, and would be a real time and money savings for families or classrooms with a smaller budget. You can make just the worksheets you need rather than buying workbooks from which you will only use part of the pages.

       A mandala is a circular design that you divide into 8 wedges like a pie. You then draw the same design in each wedge, resulting in an overall repeating pattern. If you are into coloring books, then you see these everywhere! Mandalas are not just for artsy folks. A circle divided into 8 involves fractions and geometry too. Math and art? Yes! The pattern you choose for each wedge of the circle can be simple or elaborate. This book walks you through the steps to first complete some partial and then original designs. The loads of samples are super helpful. The options are literally endless as you experiment with different lines, loops and curls. You could even create a new coloring book and give it as a gift to friends! 8.25x11”, 45pp, pb. ~ Sara

    This pliable graph board measures 8.5" x 11.75" and is double sided for use with dry-erase markers. One side displays a grid of squares 17cm wide by 26cm long. Each square in the grid is about half a centimeter squared, and squares are grouped into bolder squares of 10 x 10 squares. The other side has a similar grid that is about half the size and then a circle that is 4.25" in diameter and has measurement marks around the edges. The circle can be used for drawing various angles or even constructing a clock. Though bendable, the board is very durable, and the white, wipe-off surface can be used for many different activities. ~ Rachel

      I love a good multi-tasking teaching tool! Create your own games with this 12x12” laminated, magnetic game board. The white board has a bold blue circle divided into 10 wedges (like a 10” pie) on one side and the other side has a circle with 6 wedges. Use a dry-erase marker to write directly in the wedges (or wet-erase for more durability). Wipe them off when you change games. Each board comes with one 5” red magnetic spinner. You can purchase more magnetic spinners in a 3-pack (item # 30533).  Have your students create a game to review a lesson! Use it for a lesson on probability too! ~ Sara

    Another handy tool for learning to tell time, this one incorporates fractions. Printed on a sturdy board (think of a thick board book page), this time teller has three clock faces with moveable hands. One with hour and minute hands, one with just hour, and one with minutes. Underneath are two fraction circles divided into twelfths. The face of the clock at the top with both hands is also printed with the words “After” on the right hand side and “To” on the left, helping students to learn another way that we discuss time. – Laura

    Best known as transparency markers, vis-a-vis work well on any laminated or white board surface or contact paper. They erase with a damp cloth. Dry erase markers leave a residue on some surfaces - test a small spot before using them extensively if you have a doubt. In these cases, a wet-erase marker generally works fine. Also, the fact that these do not dry erase allows for you to use them in concert with dry-erase markers where you want to leave a base structure or outline on a board. For example, in demonstrating fractions, you may want to draw two circles with wet-erase markers. Now use your dry-erase markers to divide circles, show equivalency, etc. You can erase the dry-erase again and again, and the wet-erase circles will stay intact until you erase with a wet cloth. The wet erase marks will erode somewhat if you draw over parts with the dry-erase marker, since that removes part of the wet-erase mark. Use this system for graphing, number lines, etc. Set includes one each of black, red, blue, green, yellow, orange, brown and purple markers.
