Decimal Review Fun

Happy Friday and 3 day weekend! (for those of us who are still in school! :)

My kids have been rocking the decimal work lately (partly in fact to this calendar, seriously, peeps, if you have a SMART Board, this is well worth the investment....my kids Math MAP scores went up an average to 10 + points...well worth it!!!) and we've come to the end of our unit.

I wanted to review what we went over before I gave the test-make sure that they remember everything we've covered!

I also wanted to make it fun for them!

Enter: Centers!!

I took some of the centers that we didn't use during our decimal work, and we are using them to review instead!

Almost all of my math centers (and all of the ones you'll see here) come from the amazing, the wonderful, the talented Jennifer Findley. Her centers are bundled together in themes with such cute clipart. Everything is CC aligned and super reasonably priced.

These are the ones we used today:


 We are reviewing ordering decimals, comparing decimals, adding and subtracting decimals and recognizing decimals and how to write them in all their forms.

I thought this would be a one day activity, but I took a little too long teaching about the 2nd Continental Congress and the Declaration of Independence today (oops!), so we will continue on Tuesday.




The kids really enjoyed it! They love it when we do 'unconventional' work (I tested them on topics in this way as well).

They were a little bummed when I said it was time to go to gym :) But they cheered when I said we would finish on Tuesday.

Today's Outfit:

Shirt: Burlington Coat Factory
Jeans: JCP
Shoes: Endless

~My 1 year blogiversary is coming up! (hard to believe!) Does anyone want to help me with a giveaway? If you do, please email me (or leave a comment) ASAP. Thanks in advance!

Happy Weekend!

Smiles and Sunshine,
Kaitlyn
