Welcome to Week 2!

This week I would like everyone to look for lessons identified by the blue calendar, with a blue star on their dreambox page.

Activities to try for Tuesday/Thursday:

1. Comparing Fractions and decimals game "Monster stroll". Search or follow the link www.mathplayground.com

(a) Click on Math Games, then scroll down to the orange heading "More Fraction Games" and click on that.

(b) Once there, scroll down to the Brain Builders section and click on the "Monster Stroll" game.

(c) The object of the game is to reach the finish line first by moving your player to the fraction or decimal that makes each statement true.

Have fun!

2. Fraction Card Game - you will need a deck of cards to play, and a partner or two, even three! :)

(a) Start by removing the Jack, and face cards from the deck.

(b) Using the cards Ace = 1, through 10, shuffle the cards and give each player four cards.

(b) Each player makes the biggest proper fraction they can using two of their four cards. (*remember 5/5= 1, so it's not a proper fraction)

(c) The player with the largest fraction gets the point.

(d) Return cards to the deck, shuffle and play again.

(e) The player with the most points at the end wins! (you can decide how many rounds will make the game)
