Math: We practiced estimating quotients by using compatible numbers. For example, for 731 / 97, compatible numbers would be 720 / 90 = 8. Compatible numbers make it easier to estimate quotients. Students also practiced math skills using Khan Academy today. Here are some division skills we’ve been working on lately:

Homework is to practice math for 15 minutes or more using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: We reviewed our last experiment about touch sensitivity.

Social Studies: None today due to an assembly about persevering, encouraging, and doing your best.
