Grade 1

Share the Headline Story with the class. To produce some of the sample responses, pose questions such as, “If Jason has 50¢, how much does his sister have?” or “Could Jason’s sister have 25¢?”

Jason has half as much money as his sister.

- If Jason has half as much money as his sister, then his sister has twice as much money as Jason;
- If Jason has 50¢, his sister has a dollar.
- If Jason’s sister has 10¢, then Jason has 5¢.
- Jason’s sister could not have 25¢.
- Half of 25¢ is 12¢, but you cannot have 12¢.
