### Decimal Exploration!

Mrs. Yollis' students have been learning about decimals!

Here is a lesson about tenths and hundredths using dimes and pennies.

Decimals: Tenths and Hundredths on PhotoPeach

Do you see any decimals in your life?

1. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

Learning about decimals is fun! When I was getting all of my pennies together, I sorted them into ten piles of ten.

Happy decimals,
Trent :-)

2. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

Thank you for all that Ethan is learning in math. The decimals, fractions, etc.. are not only classwork and homework for him, but I really see him utilize these skills in his activities of daily living (purchasing goods/paying cashier, measuring, etc.). For Ethan, it has really brought about a sense of independence in this area of socialization skills. As a parent, it's really rewarding for me to see.

Sincerely,

Ethan's mom

3. Alex yet again! That is an awesome video! I actually learned how to read decimals better. Way to go guys! Keep up the good work.

4. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

I love your post of decimal. Paul shows great insterest in math, decimals, fractions, shapes... and he is really into it. I hope that he will continue in this direction as math is the fundation of science.

Sincerely,
