What's Happening in Math Right Now?
We are working on decimals. Ask your child if they can say the following decimals:
4.5 34.08 .809 .008
Then while you're at it, try measuring some objects using millimeters, centimeters and meter.
You and your child are welcome to explore the site. BRAINBUSTERS is a link on our class website. If you go to Isd77.org - Schools- Kennedy - Fourth Grade - Mrs. Dickau you will find BRAINBUSTERS. You can also click on the site above. Happy exploring!
