Today, we read The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! It was a very funny book told for the point-of-view, or perspective, of the wolf. In both stories, the pigs build homes or dwellings. For math, we built our own structures using ones, tens, and hundreds. It was a fun way to practice place value!

Here is Mrs. Yollis' sample.
On the left side of the card is each part of the house and the number of units used. (Example: 20 units were used on the roof, one hundred on the front.) On the right side of the card are three sentences. The first sentence describes the house. The second sentence tells how many hundreds, tens, and ones were used. The third sentence tells wheather the total number of units was odd or even.
Which dwelling do you like the most and why?
What is the value? Is it odd or even?
William's boat house (308 units)
Hailey's one-story house (154 units)
Sawyer's mansion (505 units)
Ari's ordinary house (274 units)
Abigail's modern house (287 units)
Angelique's house (449 units)

One house was quite complicated, and it took three people to calculate the grand total. Way to persevere!
Some structures are still under construction and will be published soon!
