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.
