# Curriculum Cut-Outs

Sometimes a student just needs that one key thing to unlock a concept such as fractions. It might be something to hold or fold or move around or a colorful chart that makes the pieces fall into place. Fraction Bars is a rainbow-colored chart (5.5x 5.5") made of card stock that serves as a quick reference for fractions from a whole to twelfths. Your visual learners will appreciate seeing how two blue "one-eighth" sections equal one yellow "one-fourth" section. Fraction Circles come in a rainbow assortment of 36 cardstock pieces (colors correspond to the Fraction Bars chart.) Each set includes four circles of each color divided into the corresponding fractions with black lines (i.e. yellow circles are fourths; blues are eighths). The really clever thing about these circles is that each one has a cut to the middle on one side, so you can fit them together and spin to reveal more or less of the one in front or behind and really see how the sizes relate to one another. For instance, if you fit together the yellow fourths circle and the purple twelfths circle, you can show show half of each circle and see that 2/4 equals one half and 6/12 equals one half. Or twist a little more so you can see three of the yellow fourths, and discover that the other fourth holds three of the purple twelfths! Set also includes four white covers, also cut, so you could even practice addition and subtraction with fractions by sliding the cover to reveal more or less. Inexpensive and effective! ~ Sara
