We've started our sixth math unit of the year, and this one is all about multi-digit division. We've been tackling this tricky math concept by doing a lot of hands on work and problem solving with partners. We've learned many strategies to help us solve division problems, and students are encouraged to use a strategy that is just right for them. View the pictures below for examples of our division fun!
We have been working hard at getting our math homework done every night. We set a goal to have 90% of the class finish their homework. Every day that 90% of student completed their homework, we earned a letter toward spelling "HOMELINK" and when we spelled homelink, we got a special prize! As a class we decided that the reward we would earn would be a pajama day and a read in.
On February 19, we finally earned that reward! Students got to come to school in their comfy clothes, and we spent a whole hour of our afternoon reading! Now, we are working towards root beer floats! Yummy!
