Runde's Room Interactive Math Journals have been a HUGE inspiration to my teaching this year. I've actually been doing math & science journals, and I LOVE them! Check out this brillant way to document equivalent fractions:

Math Coach's Corner has several posts on fractions that have been a huge help! I'm looking forward to using her Fraction Games (Free!!!)
Comparing Fractions Poster Credit: Math Coach's Corner
Check out her comparing Fractions poster; it's another freebie! She has an entire wonderful post on comparing fractions you can find here. And then she has a great building fractions number sense post/game for the younger kids! Love it! Math Coach's Corner has been a wonderful resource for me this week; I feel like I have a personal math coach (which I desperately needed this week!).

Adorable Cara over at First Grade Parade posted how to make these chef hats. This would be a fun twist to do with fractions when talking about "Pizza" or "Pie"!
I didn't want to jump into equivalent fraction by just cross multiplying. I love this video from MathMammoth that explains the visual models and moves into the more abstract concepts later. Here is a worksheet that goes with it.

I LOVE anchor charts in my classroom. I'm not super creative with the design, so I checked out The Hanley's wonderful blog for great anchor charts!
