Good afternoon everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We had a great weekend. Kase started his skating lessons and we enjoyed some time in our neighbours pool!

It is our bake sale tomorrow. Please bring in nut free baked good and please avoid may contain items. All food donations can be dropped off in our classroom. Popsicles will also be for sale!!! Many thanks in advance!!

A note from Ms. Chin: Hello Parent(s)/Guardians: 

We would like to send a friendly reminder to all parent(s)/guardian(s) to please label your child(ren)'s uniform pieces to help us retrieve items in a more efficient manner and to reduce the number of lost uniform pieces. All unidentified uniform pieces have been place in our lost and found box located outside of the gymnasium area, and all identified pieces have been returned to the appropriate students. 

We are also kindly asking all parent(s)/guardian(s) to please check your child's uniform labels to ensure that your child has not accidentally taken home someone else's uniform piece. If this is the case, please return the uniform piece to you child's homeroom teacher. Iron-on name labels are also available through Multiform Canada.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Today we looked at adding numbers. For some questions, we used our rounding skills to help us. Please remember your rounding rules – 1-4 round down & 5-9 round up. For example when rounding to the nearest hundred 12 would round to 10 and 18 would round to 20. For the nearest 100, 233 would round to 200 and 571 would round to 600. Please remember to look to the number next door to help you decide if you should round down. **When adding make sure you line up your numbers correctly!**

Points to remember:
Standard Form is simply writing the number out in numbers (9361).
Written Form is writing it out in words (9361 = nine thousand, three hundred and sixty one).
Expanded Form is breaking up the number by using place value and + signs (9361 = 9000 + 300 + 60 + 1).

Hundred Thousand

We also looked at ordering numbers and figuring out if some numbers were greater than, less than, or equal to. Remember the alligator mouth eats the bigger number (54 > 11, 2599 < 3001).
