After lunch, I gave them time to work on the "final drafts" of yesterday's art project. At 1:00, they went to their different "mixing" areas: art, drama, or physical education. In math, we are continuing out work with estimation and mental math. This is usually the hardest chapter of the entire year for students and definitely the least fun for me to teach. If it weren't so darn important a life skill I'd happily skip it!
Homework: (1) Do "Estimate Sums and Differences," pages 32-33 in the enVision Math book. (2) Write a sentence for each of the twenty spelling words. Students have the list from Monday. (3) Do "Subtraction with Regrouping 3." (4) Do "Camping Trip" on the back of the math answer sheet.
