Decimals

We have been learning about decimals in math.  Our study of decimals includes:

  • Representing decimal numbers (tenths & hundredths) using base ten blocks and money
  • Writing decimal numbers in standard, word, and expanded form
  • Comparing and ordering decimals through hundredths
  • Relating decimals to fractions (tenths & hundredths)
  • Determining decimals as points on a number line
  • Adding & subtracting decimals (including money)

Here are some links that your child can use to practice decimal skills:

Your votes are needed!!

Sonic’s Limeades for Learning contest has begun!  I have entered a project called Bouncy Bands for Bouncy Minds to try to obtain Bouncy Bands for the desks in my classroom!  You may vote once per day from each email address that you have.  I’m also collecting the code stickers that you get when you order something at any Sonic location.  (Don’t be afraid to ask for extra! 🙂 )  Each code counts as 2 votes!  You may enter the codes yourself, or you may send them my way and I’ll do all the work!  Save those stickers and spread the word!!  Click on the picture above to view and vote for my project!

Bouncy Bands for Bouncy Minds!

What a wonderful community of learners we have in our classroom this year! I’m so excited to help our students learn and grow.

I have registered our classroom on DonorsChoose.org, an amazing website where individuals can contribute to public schools. Throughout the year, I will post requests for resources on my classroom page, https://www.donorschoose.org/Stephanie.Hunter, that will help make your child’s time at school even more engaging, dynamic, and enriching.

My current project is called Bouncy Bands for Bouncy Minds! Below is a video that will show & tell you all about Bouncy Bands.  Check it out and donate if you can!  Thank you!!
