What do we remember about Place Value?
Sampann: You add, you minus. The tens, ones and hundreds and thousands.
Jaiden: There is 10 in one 10.
Deakyn: 8 tens in 80.
Libby: There are no 10 ins 6.
Nevada: There are 3 tens in 30.
Noah: There are 7 tens in 70.
Today we extended our Place Value learning from yesterday and showed number using tens and ones. Some of us even used our curiosity and challenged ourselves with hundreds!
Can you have a guess about what our book might be about?!
Joseph: Year of the dog – Chinese New Year!!!!
Jed: I think the dog is at the pound waiting for a friend.
Llana: It taught us to be patient to wait for people to care.
At the back of the book it had the different animals from the different years.
Libby: I know I am the rabbit because I have a little statue from China from my nanna!
We borrowed our readers and began reading them!
