Something different…

for homework tonight – Math! Students reviewed place value in class today.  We discussed hundreds, thousands and millions – and that within those there are one, ten and hundreds place.  They then practiced reading the numbers and identifying the place value of individual numbers within the bigger number.  I explained, and showed, that numbers can be written as numbers (ie, in “standard form”, such as 72,460), they can be written as words (ie seven thousand two thousand four hundred and sixty) and in “expanded” form (i2 70,000 + 2,000 + 400 + 60).

The assignment tonight is for them to rewrite the numbers on their math sheet in “expanded” form.

It was lovely meeting so many parents last night, BTW.  Thank you all for coming –  it’s gonna be a wonderful year!!
