Both Cuisinarie-Dale Seymour and Creative Teaching catalogs have many
examples of manipulations that can be used in teaching fractions. Fraction
tiles come immediate to my mind. Along with these manipulations are books
with lesson plans.

The journal: Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School  has ideas of using
manipulations as well. If you do not receive this journal, call a local
college that prepares teachers. Visit their library and browse through
several copies.
