Homework:

No math homework, but just so you are aware…

Gr 4s are learning about comparing and ordering numbers. In plain english, comparing means saying which of two numbers is bigger; ordering means putting three or more numbers in order, either from smallest to largest (usually “from least to greatest”) or from biggest to littlest (“from greatest to least”); they are also using the > sign (which means greater than), the < sign (lesser than), and of course the = sign (equals).

 

Gr. 5s are exploring different ways of making an educated guess when you are having to guess at what a series of numbers would add up to. Our page today talked about a fast (but no so terribly accurate) way of estimating called front-end rounding; and another method (also easy to do, and slightly more accurate) called compensation.

 

Social studies: Both grades have a map labelling and colouring assignment (Th).

 

Tomorrow is our Terry Fox run shortly after 2:00 pm.
