Week 5 - fraction 21

This week Whakapono21 have been learning a new maths game and it is called Fraction 21.  In the game the children will count in halves.  They can say one number, two numbers or three numbers.  If they say the wrong number they are out.  If you say the number seven you are out and then you start from half again.  Fraction 21 is played exactly like 21 but using fractions.  The children were a little bit apprehensive in the beginning but now they seem to be finding their feet and find the game amazing.  In time we will also try to count backwards and maybe even change from halves to quarters.
