Math Centers Today

Mrs. Burns' math classes got to explore some decimal math centers today. Students played Decimal Concentration where they matched the same decimal written in word form, expanded form and represented in place value grids. The True and False game had students determining if the decimal equation was True or False. Students worked with a teacher on the Place Value Number Sort to determine if two decimals were x10 greater or 1/10 smaller.  Lastly, students really enjoyed playing Decimal War and finding out who won by determining which student had the biggest decimal.

First Days of Fifth Grade

We have had a great first week! Here are our fifth graders hard at work on brainstorming what our classroom rules should be this year. They also had fun completing a scavenger hunt about their classmates. Next week, we start switching for all classes as we start our regular routine.
