We began our topic on money in math. We learned to determine the value of a set of coins and compare the value of more than one group of coins. We also figured out ways to show the same amount using different sets of coins and different ways to make $1.00 using coins. We learned the correct way to show an amount of money using the dollar sign and decimal point. Students practiced writing amounts of money using the correct formatting. You should see examples of this work in your child’s Friday Folder.
For the next two weeks students will be working on an animal report and diorama project as part of their homework. Please see the Animal Report tab for more information.
