In the morning we sang a song for Chinese New Year!!! Way to go Grade 2's!!!!
We began the day with our spelling test.
Next we continued working with equivalent fractions and sets of fractions during math.
Lizzie has 12 pictures. She gave 1 third to Khaliya. How many pictures did she give to Khaliya?
Our first step is drawing out the total number of items in the question: 12 pictures
O O O O O O O O O O O O = 12 pictures
Next, we look at the 1 third and focus on the second number: Third, which means we need to make three equal groups.
O O O O
O O O O
O O O O
Next, we look at the 1 third, this means that Lizzie gave 1 group out of the three groups to Khaliya; in one group there are 4 pictures so Lizzie gave Khaliya four pictures and she had 8 left.
We practiced working with similar questions and did really well!!!!
Next we had a snack before the SJA versus the Maples Oral competition.
After we watched the SJA versus the Maples Oral competition!!!!! All our competitors did a wonderful job, including Julia who got third place out of all the primary competitors. Way to go!!!!
Next we had lunch.
After lunch, we were really excited because we were told that we are imagining that we are inventing a new toy and that we are going to be writing an explanation for our new toy!!! Students had so much fun using their big and bright imaginations!!!
After second recess and lunch, we continued writing our toy explanation.
At the end of the day we had free time!!!
Have a wonderful long weekend!!!
