This week we integrated our new UOI: How We Organize Ourselves and mathematics. We used our inquiry skills to investigate with currency from around the world. We noticed the images, dates, and words. We then classified them according to each currency origin.
Computer Skills and UOI!
This week Mr. Galiger visited our class to show how we work with google spread sheet. Prior to his visit, we went shopping on-line for groceries and recorded our purchases onto our spreadsheets. We discussed comparing prices and calculating the sum for multiple items. We then learned how to keep an accounting record of how to add and subtract the price of each item using the computer.
This week we reviewed place value using the decimal notation. We made our own math game and played "Race for the Dollar". The goal is to reach $1 SDG first by adding using different coin values.
Expanding Our Unit Vocabulary!
This week, as part of our on-going literacy skills, we focused on building our vocabulary knowledge. We chose interesting words from our reading and writing, as well as words that relate to our UOI.
