It is hard not to be in the holiday mood when you see those big flakes falling to the ground. Thank goodness I already have my lights up. Reminder - Monday is pizza day. Reminder - Monday is the last day for contributing to the coffee lovers basket. Thanks to everyone who has donated already! In math, we continue to work on mental math strategies, with an eye towards addition. Today, we worked on using rounding numbers to make them easier to work with in our head. Here are a couple of sites to practice with, and a quiz. http://www.aplusmath.com/Flashcards/rounding.html There are some decimal numbers on this game, which we have not covered yet. http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/mathsfile/shockwave/games/roundoff.html http://www.math4.nelson.com/quizzes/math4quizzes/m4ch4l2.htm We continue to work on inferencing during English. Here is a great site with a few activities to help practice at home. Each activity starts with an explanation of what we are looking for, and continues with a practice activity. A great site for those still not quite sure what all this is about. http://www.gamequarium.com/readquarium/skillsi-p.html Have a good weekend!
