Then we had Daily 5.
After we had math, today for math we looked at adding money.
We set up a store to buy things and students had to make their change and pay me!
They were given their shopping list and had to browse the store, then they lined up to cash out.
They showed me how they figured out the total of their items by counting the dollars first then the cents.
After, everyone cashed out we took up some problems together. We looked at some other problems in which we had to add items such as:
We noticed here that the dollars add up to $2 but the cents are 160 so what happens next?
We can't write $2.160, but we know that 100 cents make a dollar so we add a dollar to the dollar value and keep the cents so it is $3.60.
After students practiced adding the totals for orders at a coffee shop. Making change will be another lesson. Students were asked to just total the items. Some students worked on the challenge which was to find the change. We will be having a lesson on finding change!
Then we had first lunch and recess.
After recess we had UOI, today we looked at identifying traditions from a range of cultures. We started off brainstorming what we have been learning about during this unit.
We talked about Christmas and birthday celebrations in different countries, Ramadan, Eid, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, New Years, Chinese New Years.
Then students were challenged to figure out clues from various envelopes and match it to a tradition and explain why.
Then we went to French with Mme Stella and second lunch and recess.
After recess we finished investigating the envelopes and took up our worksheets.
To finish the day students were given time to practice their speeches.
