This week in math, students learned about decimal tenths and hundredths. They learned that fractions, decimals and percentages are different ways to represent the same amount—for example, 8/10 = .8 = 80%. Decimals are simply a way to describe fractions using place value. We watched a video in class in which it explained in depth what decimal tenths and hundredths are. Throughout the week, students worked on representing & describing decimals concretely, pictorially and symbolically along with the related fraction. They learned how to read a number correctly containing decimals. For example, 5 635.24 reads as five thousand six hundred thirty-five and twenty-four hundredths, or 429.6 reads as four hundred twenty-nine and six tenths. Students also discussed where we see decimals all the time—in money! They worked on representing decimals with coins and then practiced adding money amounts together.
Students were also working really hard on their year-end scrapbook during class time this week. They are to have 12 letters finished by today, and we’ll continue to work on them next week. I’ve been impressed on how focused they have been working in class, and the creative & decorative touches they’ve been adding to each of their letters to highlight their learning this year. Have a great weekend! —Ms. Jagger
