3rd Graders Practice Their Decimal Addition

Sometimes Outside Makes a Great Classroom!

Decimal AdditionAs I was walking down the hallway today, I was intrigued to see what was going on outside. Mrs. Joyce’s 3rd grade class was doing Math with sidewalk chalk…I had to join in on the fun! When I went out to the courtyard, a young lady asked me what I would like to order (the students were using a Brahms Breakfast menu for adding with decimals). I decided to go all out and ordered steak with eggs, some hash browns and a cinnamon roll. She asked me if I wanted a large hash brown and I answered in the affirmative. She added my total correctly, and I gave her my money. She made sure to give me exact change, and I gave her a generous tip for being such a great hostess. I loved how much they enjoyed working with their numbers, how engaged they all were, and how they were using real life math.
