The kids 'round here!

Today was one of my favourite Math lessons to teach: rounding numbers! 
We had a ball learning about how to round numbers to the nearest ten and we'll talk more in depth on Tuesday about how to round to the nearest 100.  

Now a  fair warning to all you parents out there, because the kids are coming home armed with this new information. They're fully equipped to tell you your "round about" age. I've warned them to steer clear of anyone in their late 30s, 40s, etc. I was not thrilled to hear that I was "about 50" in the world of rounding numbers, and you won't appreciate your rounded age if you're 37, 45 or even 28! Nope. You won't appreciate it at all. 

Tomorrow, to review our skills, the kids will learn about my make-believe monster truck school bus.  They'll learn that the Mihalides Monster Truck School Bus has stops at house number: 10, 20, 30, 40, etc. They will learn about which stop they'll need to get off at if they live at house #21, 34, 39, 41,etc. But, to be honest, the monster truck school bus doesn't actually come to a full stop, the kids just kind of leap out of it, which is probably why you don't see many of them on the road.
