2018 is off to a great start. We had our first full week this past week and I don't know about your kids, but I am EXHUASTED! We jumped right back in to all of our lessons and the kids are up to the task. Let me give you a little snapshot of what we're up to!
In math, we just ended Chapter 5 and are continuing with decimals. Chapter 6 will be all about multiplying and dividing decimals, so buckle up! We have a lot of hands on activities to help them wrap their heads around the concepts. They did a good job with rounding, adding and subtracting decimals. Here are some pictures of the class participating in a project in which they were worked in teams, shared ideas, guessed and checked their ideas —and then presented their solutions. They had to plan a family vacation including travel, meals, lodging, excursions and souvenirs all within a given budget. It was great to watch them argue over dollars and cents and to see which fun activities they would give up for necessities!
