Mrs. Hassels' Math Class

Hassles Math - On Monday we took a Topic 2 pretest. It does not go in the grade book, but it just helps Mrs. Hassles understand how much we already know. After that we cut and glued our vocab card into our math notebook.

On Tuesday we learned about break apart, counting on, and compensation. Break apart is when you break apart the numbers and then add up all the sums. Counting on is when you have a number and you want to add on to it you can just use your fingers. Compensation is when you estimate the number to make it easier to add. Then you add the number that you took away.

On Wednesday we did estimating. Estimating is when you take a number and you round it to what ever place value you want to. If you want a more specific answer than round down lower.

On Thursday we learned about the Addition Algorithm. Addition algorithm is just like addition steps.

On Friday we took a time test. We also played a center game. Finally we reviewed estimating.

Mrs. Price's Math Class

In Mrs. Price's Math this week we learned how to put decimal numbers in expanded form and we also learned how to round them. It was actually quite fun. We would have our new and colorful envision books out and we would put numbers like 567,983 and 1.387 in expanded form with and without exponents. Like 4.673 (4*1) + (6*1 tenth) + (7* 1 hundredth) + (3*1 thousandth). This really made us think!

Now today (Friday) we took our topic 1 tests and we had a fire drill during that! We also learned how to round decimals to the nearest whatever tenths, hundredths, and thousandths. Have you ever heard of prodigy? We also did that this week. It was fun. We had a fun week in math. Have a good Weekend!


On Monday in Science we researched an animal that we picked from any of the habitats we researched last week. We had to find pictures of the habitat it lives in and three of it's adaptations. The habitats include Everglades, the Ocean, the Mountains, Pacific Northwest Forests,and the Arctic Tundra.

On Tuesday and Wednesday in science we put our animal from our research and we put it in Google Draw. You had to label your pictures and put your pictures in Google Draw.

On Thursday in science we did a Clarisketch. A Clarisketch is where you put a picture on the screen and you can use all sorts of different tools on it. You can talk and draw at the same exact time! After you finish you can listen to it. It is an awesome way to learn.

On Friday​ in science, we finished our Clarisketch's from Thursday.
