Virtual Fraction Manipulatives

In our study of fractions, the manipulatives that we use in class are pattern blocks and fraction tiles.  The picture below will take you to a website where the kids can use fraction tiles and circles to make all kinds of discoveries such as equivalent fractions, adding/ subtracting fractions, modeling & identifying improper fractions & mixed numbers, and comparing & ordering fractions.  Not only can the fraction pieces on the site be moved or manipulated, but there is also a work space with a drawing tool that the kids can use to write the equations or fractions that they’ve modeled.  They can then take a picture of their work and email it, or even post it on their blog!  It is also a wonderful resource to use when working on fraction homework!  To check it out, click on the picture of the fraction tiles below.
