Ms. Rene Nel from Parrow North Primary School teaches a lesson about dealing with fractions to her Grade 4 learners. This lesson builds from the learners prior knowledge of fractions in that they begin with fraction circles. The learners work with the pieces to identify how many parts of the whole the different circles have. The next step was for the teacher to add dots to the circles. This will also help the learners to determine fractions of whole numbers at a later stage. The teacher encourages learners to be involved in the lesson not by only answering questions but by also allowing them to physically work with the resources. The learners will them complete an abstract activity in the workbooks to consolidate what they have learnt.
