Grade 1 Gazette



Math
This week we have been learning about fractions of shapes.  We have divided circles and rectangles into two and four equal parts.  We described the equal parts of the shapes using the words halves, fourths and quarters.  To celebrate our hard work, today we put our fraction knowledge to use and made bagel pizzas! The kids made one half pepperoni, one quarter with cheese and the other quarter (or forth) Canadian bacon.  When splitting pizza or food at home, talk about the different fractions with your kids! J
