Today in class we learned how to convert decimals into fractions.  We learned that if you read the decimal properly, it tells you how to make it a fraction, then you just reduce.  For example, 0.35 is read zero and thirty-five hundredths, so you would write it with 35 on top and 100 on the bottom, then you would reduce by dividing by 5 which would give you 7/20.

In social studies we are beginning our unit on Ancient Rome.  We read part of chapter 13 in class that talked about the Roman Republic and answered some comprehension questions with a partner.

I gave them time in class to work on their homework so that they wouldn't have much if any left to do.  If you celebrate Halloween, have fun trick-or-treating.
