Sorry I haven't been updating since last week. Tis' the season.
Yesterday we finished chapter 6 in class. They learned about the distributive property. It states:
a ( b + c) = ab + ac They can use this when breaking up a number as well. For example: 6 x 54 = 6(50 + 4) = 300 + 24 = 324.
In social studies we have begun our study of other ancient cultures such as the Mayans. We read chapter 7 section 1. There were some intriguing facts in our reading.
Today we will be on our space week field trip. It should be a lot of fun!
When we return, the kids have a test on Chapter 6 on Wednesday. I haven't given them any paper pencil homework. Please make sure that they are studying for their test.
