I think we can set aside learning about Place Value for awhile. We spent over two weeks and I feel we have a good grasp, though I will be doing a little assessment next week to double-check.
We started with this discussion, “What do we know about Place Value?” And I let everyone talk some ideas out, and then I called on each student. They did really well! We had a question about google, so one student decided to find out about it and present his findings next week. I really need to work on my whiteboard handwriting.
After our discussion, everyone went to whatever station to complete their assignments. At the end of math time, I showed my slideshow of numbers (that I did earlier), but this time instead of saying 9085, we added ten and said 9095. It was fun! I can always bring this up, and do different activities, like add 100 or subtract 10.
Next up is rounding!
Thanks for following along with me! If you are reading this, can you leave a comment?
