You Can Now See Our Projects!
I have finally found a way to post our projects online. If you go to www.fontaine2ml.weebly.com, you will be able to access a website that will contain our paper slide videos, frog and toad Animoto slideshows, our Symbaloo, and hopefully, very soon...our bird podcasts. This site will be used to showcase our projects. The students wanted to add a blog, so there is a blog page on there as well. We actually posted on our blog this afternoon. I know they would love it if people would leave comments.

Students will learn mental math strategies such as: subtracting 10, finding parts of 100, using a hundred chart to subtract and subtracting multiples of 10.
