Montessori fraction insets are fabulous. They’re also expensive and take up a lot of shelf space. For Montessori homeschools, that’s not very practical. I’ve found DIY Montessori fraction materials that will give children a hands-on experience of fractions at a fraction of the price. (Couldn’t resist saying that!)
I want to keep this simple by featuring basic Montessori fraction materials that are one color for isolation of quality and for consistency with the Montessori fraction insets.

Montessori Fraction Presentations
“Montessori Math Lesson – Fractions” from My Works Montessori (YouTube video shows DIY fraction circles with presentation.)
Fractions by Montessori Primary Guide has helpful online presentation ideas.
I like the Montessori Print Shop Primary Teaching Manuals (available for purchase) for clear AMI presentations in practical life, sensorial, language, and math. The math manual contains a good introduction to fractions.
George Family – Montessori at home has “Montessori Fractions – Beginning through Basic Operations.”
Fall Fraction Extension
Apple Fractions File Folder Game from Itsy Bitsy Fun (This isn’t a traditional Montessori material, but it’s a fun extension activity for fall and uses isolation of quality.)
