BIG numbers with our 5th grade buddies.

A conversation that took place during the first week of school in Room 32 included the question, “Can you learn with kids older than you are?” Some of us thought yes, others not so sure. We put the thinking to the test on Friday when we partnered with a 5th grade class down the hall. Room 32 learners were working on a strategy to read  up to 12 digit numbers. Not an easy task to get all of that thinking through your brain files and then smoothly out of your mouth. Try it yourself. Say 987,462,108 (You didn’t say “and” anywhere did you?) We had a great 20 minutes with our buddies and hope to have many more “multi-age” moments this year. Thanks Mrs. Blowers for partnering with us!Image
