We finished up fractions by comparing multiple fractions on a number line using multiple strategies like, common numerators, benchmarks, and common denominators. We also practiced some double digit multiplication and long division.
We had a great time visiting the mobile planetarium that served as an introduction to our unit on cycles on Earth. We saw beautiful images of the moon phases and will continue our study when we return in January.
I also want to thank you all for your donations to Ms. Dora's holiday gift. In total we collected over $160 to give to her. The kids surprised her with the gift and a song on Friday afternoon. Your generosity moved her to tears. You guys are the best!
Have a safe holiday!!
