Woohoo! Quiz over and a long weekend beginning!

Hey G5 kids!

So, the quiz is over - we are moving on to a new unit in Math on Monday: decimal numbers.

Please write me a comment (don't forget to sign your initials at the bottom of your post!) and tell me one thing you know about decimal numbers, and one thing that you are wondering about decimal numbers.

After that relax, and check out Miss Freel's Grade 5 Links.

Hope you have a great long weekend!

Grade 5: Your mission, if you choose to accept it:

Hi Grade 5s!
Since we have been working on expanded form in math this week, you have a tiny assignment. This will help you to show off just how much you know about numbers to one million.

Please answer the two questions below by "commenting" on this post. You can let me know who posted what by writing your initials.

Question 1: Write the following number in expanded form: 823 019

Question 2: Explain how two numbers can have the same digits but different values. Use an example.

Oh, technology...

So, I have been on a learning curve with this blog... but I think I am now getting the hang of it! There were some glitches with people posting comments, but I think I have figured this out. If you would like to post a comment about one of your classes, or just send me a note, that would be great.

Grade Three students, don't forget that you will be going to the Extendicare on Monday to read with residents.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Relax, and prepare for the week ahead.
