The fraction bars (often referred to as Cuisenaire rods) have been made to work hand in hand with my fraction strips.
Fraction bars should be cut into their individual fraction pieces.
I have created two sets for you to choose from. Set 1 is simply black outline with the fraction size indicated, and set 2 arecolored.
If you choose to print set 1, I highly recommend you color them before cutting, so each fraction size is the same color.
If your student has gone beyond needing to 'fit' fraction strips together for comparison purposes, consider using these printable fraction strip pages whole, and put in a folder or stick on the wall as a poster. Your kid can then visually recognize fraction relationships without actually having to physically manipulate them to do so.
If you like these fraction bars, you may also like our Fraction Circles.
