Our focus in Math continues to be place value. Math inquiry this week included working with place value blocks to find all the different combinations of numbers we could make with 3 flats, 3 longs and 3 cubes. Working in pairs we wrote down all the numbers we could find and then Mrs. Aubrey challenged us to prove that we had found them all. Some of the students arranged the numbers in a chart and some students wrote the numbers in order. We have also been practicing rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and the nearest 100.

She would put it up on the Smartboard and then invite other students to explain what they did to arrive at the correct answer. It was a lot of fun!
