We are currently having fun with FRACTIONS in grade one! We have learned that fractions are the names we give to equal parts of a whole. We have been learning how to describe fractions using math words such as half, third, fourth/quarter, sixth, eighth, etc. Today we read the book 'Apple Fractions' by Jerry Pallotta. Then we divided apples into halves, thirds, fourths/quarters, sixths and eighths. We happily devoured our 'fractions of apples' after we were all done!

We had a wonderful time creating our puppets today with Kathy and John from the 'Rag & Bone Theatre Company.' The children really looked at the found materials provided for their inspiration. We learned that sometimes the best ideas are obvious if we open our eyes and allow our imaginations to take over. We ended up with dragons, tigers, pirates, evil villains, dinosaurs and so much more!
Tomorrow, June 1st, your child will receive a blue permission form and information letter about our upcoming field trip to the 'Mill of Kintail Conservation Area' on Wednesday, June 21st. Please read the letter carefully as well as sign and return the bottom portion as soon as possible! Thank you in advance, for your cooperation!
