At Smart Boarding School, we believe that learning should be as sweet as a treat! That's why we're excited to introduce a delightful craft activity aimed at kindergarten and year 1 students: "Half of a Treat." Get ready to indulge your creative cravings as we explore fractions and sharing in a deliciously fun way!

"Half of a Treat" is a craft activity designed to help students understand the concept of halves while also promoting the values of sharing and friendship. With its hands-on approach and engaging format, this activity transforms math practice into a scrumptious adventure.

Select a Treat

Students begin by selecting one of the seven tempting treats provided in the resource. From cupcakes to cookies, there's something for everyone's sweet tooth!

Cut and Glue

Once students have chosen their treat, they carefully cut it in half and glue it onto page 2 of the worksheet. This hands-on activity allows students to visually experience the concept of halves while also developing their fine motor skills.

 

Complete the Sentence

After gluing their treat onto the page, students fill in the missing words from the sentence at the bottom of the page. For example, they might write "half" in the sentence "I divided my treat in 'half'" and then add the name of a friend they would like to share their treat with.

 

Promote Sharing and Friendship

Through "Half of a Treat," students not only learn about fractions but also practice important social skills such as sharing and empathy. By imagining sharing their treat with a friend, students develop a sense of kindness and generosity.
