Comparing Decimals and Expressions

Comparing Decimals and Expressions

Children sometimes have a hard time comparing numbers, and knowing if one number is greater or less than another. Understanding place value and whether a digit is in the ones, tens, or hundreds place can be a big help in making number comparisons.
What is an expression? Make sure to give your students lots of examples before asking them to compare! If your students are ready, you can even include variables in some of your examples.

Inferences & Summarizing

Inferences & Summarizing

Ask your child about books they're reading at home and at school to help strengthen summarizing skills. When children summarize they tell what the story or book is mostly about in five sentences or less. Then, ask them to make inferences about specific parts of the stories they've described.
As students learn to visualize what they're reading, they will also improve their inference skills. Have students draw a picture or comic strip to show what they've read. Then, have them put it into words with a three-sentence summary. Finally, ask them to make an inference about a specific part of the story and refer to the book and their drawings for inspiration.
