Thank you to everyone for all of the many gifts, treats and Angel gift. I feel very blessed to work in this community. I really appreciate your generosity and thoughtfulness. I can never thank you enough, but this is a start! I hope all of you enjoyed your holidays and my best to all of you in the New Year!
Before Christmas we started a fraction review unit where students had to create a Christmas ornament based on a set of directions that required them to divide the ornament into fractional parts. It turned out beautiful and the students really enjoyed it! This project was a great way to end 2018 and help students to start thinking about how fractions and decimals are related. We started with chapter 5 which is division of decimals, before Christmas break so we should be completing this chapter next week. You can check Google Classroom for details on homework and the chapter 5 test. We will then be getting into adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions.
