Ms. Gleason's Class ~ We have been busy with our beginning of the year assessments. We have also spent time adding and subtracting multi-digit numbers. We took a quiz on this. It is corrected and in your child's Friday Folder. This week we began place value. Children practiced writing numbers in standard form, word form, and expanded form. Next we will compare and order multi-digit numbers, as well as round them to designated places.
Mrs. Close's Class ~ The kids have been really busy working on rounding and estimating. Towards the end of the week we worked with word problems that required the kids to estimate, then find the exact answer. To add another layer of thinking, they had to decide if their final answer was reasonable. It's a great strategy to double check yourself....especially when shopping. Next week we'll practice subtraction, measurement, and even a little bit of geometry!
How are those bean seeds doing that came home? Oliver was thrilled to share!
