Today we finished up our personal collages and wrote artists statements introducing and reflecting on our work as collage artists throughout the project. Most students have completed their photo essays and should spend some time Friday and this weekend rehearsing what they will be saying during their presentations next week.

Digital Citizenship Brainstorming & Classroom French Posters
Today we finished our classroom French posters, got started on our ecosystem lab write ups, learned 3 ways to determine terminating and repeating decimals and started our lessons on digital citizenship. We covered 9 ways to be a good digital citizen. Kids couldn't believe believe how everything they do online in permanent. Be sure to lock down your security settings, and keep all personal information off social media.

We can also use equivalent decimals to help us. If we are trying to figure out what half of 0.25 is we can re write it in thousandths as 0.250 and can then easily see that half of 0.25 would be 0.125
(can you put in lowest terms?)
B) Write out both fractions in words
Mr Fisher: 17/25 and 0.16
Mr. Hong: 17/25 = 0.68 seventeen twenty fifths is equal to sixty-eight hundredths
0.16 = 16/100 = 4/25 sixteen hundredths is equal to four twenty-fifths
Today we continued working on our photo essays, learned how to write decimals as standard fractions, how to break up decimals into expanded form and represent decimals using base 10 blocks.
