Fractions Reference Sheet for Elementary Students

When it comes to learning, you can never have too much practice or get too much preparation. At least, that’s what my dad always taught me. Though not a teacher, he frequently practiced difficult concepts with me to make sure that I could stay ahead of the class or at least keep up with them. He’d create math problems for me, but now you don’t have to go to all that trouble to get great resources for your children or your students. Just print them off for free at FreePrintableOnline.come! You’ll find loads of free printable worksheets to help your budding Einstein tackle concepts like the alphabet, math, geography, social studies, history, spelling, vocabulary, time, money and much more. Those first few years of school are the formative years, so additional practice at home can make the difference between mastering these concepts early on or struggling with them for years.

Math is certainly one of the more difficult subjects for students. After all, you’re not always dealing with numbers of things that can be seen, but often abstract concepts like fractions, decimals or dividing and multiplying large numbers that can’t be envisioned. Worksheets have come a long way, though, and now you can help make mastery of those concepts much easier for young students. Our free printable math worksheets cover a lot of ground, including multiplication, division, addition, subtraction, fractions, square roots, odd and even numbers, and much more.

Fractions Reference Sheet to Help Students Master Fractions

Fractions are not a student’s best friend, yet they must be learned. It’s one of the toughest areas of math for students to get the hang of, but this fractions reference sheet can make it much easier. As you can see from the picture above, it covers fractions from a whole to 1/4. Each fraction is represented as a circle graph and as a bar graph to depict how much “space” each fraction leaves when it is removed. This visual depiction makes envisioning the fractions much easier. Not only can students use this for reference, but they can work on the sheet, too! Ask the students to color in another piece of the pie that’s divided into thirds to get two-thirds, for example. Or ask for them to color in enough pieces to get three-quarters. There are lots of different ways you can use this worksheet to your students’ advantage in the classroom. The terrific thing is that it can go along with real life objects, as well. If you have toy pie pieces or even a real pie, you can cut the object to depict what is shown in the pictures. Similarly, you can do the same with blocks, as with the bar graph. Have the top part of the fraction be a different color than the bottom part. Get creative with fractions to make learning them fun!
