Hello Marmalade Minions!
We would continue our topic on multiplication & division. Last week, we looked at multiplying by making arrays. We also looked at doubles/ doubling. This week, we would focus on division by sharing.
Can you show your adult the symbol for multiplication? If you wrote this ‘x’ then you are correct! To show the action for this symbol, you can cross your arms like a ‘Samurai’.
Do you know the symbol for division? It is a line with a dot on top and below just like this ‘÷’. Can you think of an action for this symbol?
Your Power Point for this week is: Year 1 PowerPoint Week 3- Multiplication & Division
Activity 2: The number is 20 (choose 20 objects – it could be 20 chocolate buttons or 20 raisins).
Now, share this between 2 people (you and teddy). How many does each person get? Record your answer.
Repeat for 4 and 5 people and record your answers. Discuss your findings with your adult.
Please note that for worksheets, children do not need to attempt all three levels- 1, 2 or 3 stars. You may choose the level suitable for your child or the level above if they are up for a challenge. Your child may also want to choose their own task from mild (1 star), hot (2 stars) or fiery (3 stars). Sometimes, we do this in class and we call it the ‘Chilli Challenge’.
Remember, you can now share your work in the comment section below rather than the home learning email.
