RECAP OF OUR WEEK A GLIMPSE AT NEXT WEEK
Math – Place Value
This week we have been working on Place Value through a few different objectives including Counting Groups of Tens, Using Dimes to Count By Tens and Making Groups of Ten & Some More.
Students have also had to extend their thinking/understanding through questions such as…
- If 18 is the same as 1 ten and 8 more, what number would 2 tens and 3 more be? etc.
- How many dimes is the same as 90 cents? How many pennies is the same as 7 dimes? etc
- Francesca has 6 dimes. Her mom gave her 3 more dimes. How many dimes does she have now? How much is that in cents? etc.
Next Week – We will continue working on Place Value (Making a Table to Solve Problems, Writing Numbers to 100 in Different Ways, Identifying Numbers that are 10 More and 10 Less than a Given Number)
Religion – Peace Week: We read Todd Parr’s Peace Book and brainstormed with partners what “Peace” means to us. We then wrote about ways we each can be peace-makers. `
