My name is Gail Englert, and I teach fifth grade in Norfolk, Virginia. I like to use pattern blocks in my classroom. There is the traditional set of yellow hexagons, red trapezoids, blue parallelograms, and green triangles (others, too, but they aren't as useful for fractions) that can be supplemented with a fraction pattern block set sold by ETA that contains brown trapezoids and little purple right triangles. The pieces are proportional to each other, and can be used to study many geometric concepts, and fractions, too. -Gail, for the Teacher2Teacher service
