Week 7 update: October 5th - October 9th
Student Council's first project is underway. The students have decided to facilitate a Halloween costume drive. To help underprivileged children students may donate gently used costumes between October 13-16. Students may bring in their costumes and add them to the collection bins by the front entrance. All donations will be sent to the charity, "Donations for Dress Up".
It's been a great week full of many accomplishments! Read below to find out about everything we did.
Enjoy your Monday off of school,
Ms. Collins and Mrs. Cucco
Next, students learned how to divide numbers by 10's, 100's, or 1,00's by using number patterns. They discovered that when you divide, the quotient should get smaller, therefore the place value moves to the right instead of the left. They also divided numbers up to 4-digits using the same rules of the Associative Property that was learned last week to help with division. Students then used rounding to estimate quotients by rounding to compatible numbers.
Next week they will tackle dividing a 2-, 3-, or 4-digit number by a 2-digit number... aka Long Division!!
We read an excerpt from Gary Paulsen's book Hatchet, and Patricia Polacco's book My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother.
We also began the presentations of our "Hanger People". The students who didn't get a change to present will share next week!
