Fraction Flowers

I haven't posted much lately because I am taking a break.  I just finished up my grad classes and I am waiting on my final project grade.  It is such a relief to not have any more assignments to do.

My class has been working on fractions and one of my coworkers shared this fraction flower idea with me so I thought I would share it with you.  I gave my students construction paper with premade circles on them.  I ran the same page on two different colors.  Each student needs 4 circles that are the same size.  One circle is left whole.  One circle is cut in half.  One circle is folded and cut into fourths and the last circle is folded and cut into eighths.  Here is a few student made examples...

I had students label their pieces with the fraction.  They really loved making these.  So here is my circle pattern to save you some time.
