This week the students have jumped right in with our Decimals Unit and they seem to be picking up the skills pretty well! We will continue to review skills we have learned once we get to our centers (week after next). Next week our schedule will be pretty CRAZY with our Courage to Stand program, so we may not be in our usual locations. I have a lot of activities planned for the week, but they may get shifted over because of Courage to Stand. Thank you for your understanding if the webpage doesn't match up with your child's agenda.
Here is what I'm HOPING to accomplish this next week:
MONDAY - We have done some fractions in relation to decimals as a part of our Decimals introduction, but today we will really focus on how they are related. Students will also discover how decimals and fractions relate to money! I usually find that when students get stumped on decimals, the light bulbs go on when they just add a dollar sign in front of the number.
TUESDAY - Today students will compare decimals. We will be doing different comparison games to make it a little more exciting.
WEDNESDAY - Students will compare decimals
THURSDAY - PICTURE DAY!! We will do comparing and ordering decimals I have, Who has...
FRIDAY - Students will play DECIMAL WAR!!! They will also take a Decimals Assessment.
I think that is it for now! Have a fantastic weekend!
