In MATH we reviewed decimals. We are struggling with the digits to the right of the decimal point, especially the thousandths spot. We laid place value mats out on our desks today and then gave each place value spot a food to help us practice laying out different numbers. For example if I said twenty three and sixteen hundredths, we laid out two pretzel sticks, three M&M's, one marshmallow, and six skittles. Then we looked at how we should write the numbers on our paper. It was a YUMMY way to practice and a good review for all of us. If you hear "oh, I need 5 cheese-its for this number" you will know they are just thinking about our math lesson today.
Thousands were graham crackers
Hundreds were cheese-its
Tens were pretzel sticks
Ones were M&M's
Tenths were marshmallows
Hundredths were skittles
Thousandths were rolos
We ended our day with three very short centers: a handwriting page to help us with our cursive, a chance to work more on our Kansas Day posters, and a little multiplication practice with our Spacey Math game on the computer.
Tonight we may need to finish:
-Reading workbook page 13-14
-Math game sheet that we did as morning work
-Study Link 5-8 and 6-1
-Cursive handwriting name page
-Work on gather more information for Kansas Day poster
-Read an AR book if we have not qualified for the Jan. AR party yet (Points are due Jan. 30th)
Have a SUPER evening and remember there is no school tomorrow.
