It might be May, but we are still learning brand new things in Pre-K! This week, the Pre-K students were introduced to fractions. Yes, you read that right - FRACTIONS! One of my favorite Montessori materials are the Fraction Circles. They provide students with a simple visual representation of what a fraction is (a part of a whole) and allow students the tactile experience to see how the parts fit together to make the whole.
The boys and girls will be working on creating their very own fraction books showing one whole, one half, one third, one fourth, one fifth, one sixth, one seventh, one eighth, one ninth, and one tenth. As the students progress through this material, they can even learn to add and compare fractions. They are SO excited to work on "big kid" math in Pre-K!
There will be no school on Friday, May 28th, and Monday, May 31st, in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.
The last day of school is Wednesday, June 9th. There will be a noon dismissal and there will be no HCA Plus.
