Hi everyone

 

 

just wondering if anyone has any ideas on halving? so far we are going to look at half full in the cafe with milkshakes

 

do a problem solving activitity by cutting shapes in half

 

cut minibeats in half and join them together

 

 

any other ideas for a reception class?

Spots on a ladybird--6 spots altogether so 3 on one side and 3 on the other.

 

I do think you need to make sure children understand that the halves should be the same, not just an apple cut into 2 unequal pieces/ halves. Likewise half full could be inaccurate.

thanks susan

 

I'm just a little stuck. We have been doing doubling this week and we used ladybirds.

 

Just wondering what else i could do for halves. Never taught this before.

How about approaching it from a sharing a quantity into 2 equal quantities. Prediction, reverse of doubling.....

Could you do something (extend) with mirror images ... or is that just complicating things?!

The little mouse , the red strawberry and big hungry bear   this story has the mouse sharing ...

 

I used to have a prop bag that included a strawberry to share. Not really an activity but the children used to like it and it may be a start for halving fruit..

Just doing my planning for next week and we're doing some halving too.  As we've been looking at yeast, bread and by extension baking in general I'm going to have playdough cakes and put half the decorations (counters, buttons, etc) on each cake.
