Today we learned about changing fractions into decimals.  We know that a fraction bar means to divide, so if we divide the numerator by the denominator, we can convert them into decimals.   For example 4/5 is equal to 4 divided by 5.  When we divide, we see that 5 cannot go into 4, so we add a decimal and a zero.  We know that 5 can go into 40 - 8 times, so we know that 4/5 is equal to 0.8.

In social studies we are continuing our study on the Roman Civilizations.  We will be look at some of the philosophers that were important in Ancient Greece and Rome tomorrow.  I am going to take pictures of the Greek gods and goddesses so you can all see the fabulous work that the kids are doing!

Thank you so much to all of you that came to meet with me last night!  It was a great night and I look forward to meeting with all of you next semester.
