Fraction Fun with Number Lines

Studying fractions?

You won't want to miss the new, free activities from the Math Learning Center. The materials are complex...

...a number line (free pdf)
...a paperclip

I've used the paperclip/number line with students and love, love, love the way students can see and move fractions on a line.

A free "I Have, Who Has" game is also included. For a complete description and links to the free pdf, visit the MLC blog.



  1. Gracias por compartir esta idea!!
    Es genial!!

  2. Thank you so much for these fraction ideas. We just finished the unit and it was a bit of a struggle, but I think I might see how I can adapt your clothespin idea as a starter or practice session for the remaining part of the year. Will definitely use all your ideas next year...thanks again for the share...Michelle

    1. Michelle, you are so welcome. I've got another post (in my brain...hope to get it down soon) on paper plate clock fractions. They've been HUGE for understanding for us this year. So watch for more fraction posts. Thank you for commenting!


Thank you for leaving me a message. I love comments almost as much as I love chocolate! And I do LOVE chocolate. :)
