This is "how to make a low-cost fraction kit" inspired by Jodo Gyan (, Pullouts and other sources. It includes

1. fraction circles and sectors showing unit fractions

2. fractions strips which can be combined to form fraction wall

Materials can be important for helping children learn. The very young child learns in interaction with and acting on the objects around her.

Here is a quick rewind of some interesting ideas that got featured on the Teachers of India website. We know it is not final. We know there are very many resources you found it useful that we couldn't feature in this particular list. How about you making your own list and sending it to us. We also invite you to remix ideas from your own experience and share it with larger teacher community. That would be a great bang to start the year!

Using a plastic straw to explore angles, shapes & a bit of human biology.

A simple hand pump can hand to explore interesting connections across concepts.

You can also solve more complicated equations on a double ganit mala and open number line. This demo includes equations with multiple operations but with "x" appearing only once.

You can not only learn about basic math operations involving whole numbers and integers, but can also solve equations on a double ganit mala and open number line. This presentation demonstrates the concept of solving simple equations i.e. equations involving only one operation.
