Notes for the Week of December 19, 2016

​     Friday, Dec. 23 is a half day and school will be dismissed at 11:00am.

     We have done lots of comparative work between sets and numbers up to 20.  The students are using the math words 'fewer', 'more' and 'same' or 'equal' to describe the relationship.  This week, we will do lots of estimating of quantities up to 20.  "Is the number closer to 10 or 20?  Is it closer to 5 or 10?"  We will look at referents and use that to help make informed estimates.  For example, I will show 5 oranges and say "This is what 5 looks like.  How many do you think I have on this plate?"
