Give me half!

This week we have been learning about fair share and half/whole. The first day we read the book Bears Berries. It is a short book about two bear sharing berries equally. The students got to practice with berries and sharing fair or equally.

The next day we read the book Give Me Half where the two kids did not want to share fairly with each other. We discussed how sharing equally looks like by drawing shapes and drawing a line down the middle to show half.

As a fun activity we made two pizzas. Then we cut one pizza in half and labels each side as 1/2. Then we cut the other pizzas into fourths. Then the students labeled each part. Here are some examples.
