Today we learned how to add in a different way. It is called partial sum which is an algorithm.
You had to know your place value. Like 547+797 how to get the answer we have to start with the hundreds place then tens then ones.So we add 5 and 7 which equals 12. So we write 1 thousand 2 hundred. Now add 9 and 4 which equals 13. So we write 1 hundred 30.Now add 7+7=14. Now we add 1,200+130+14=1,344. That's how we do it. Like 4 and 9 you can add the 9 first then the 4 or the other way around.

Today we had another map test. We are going to have another map test and a math MAP test next Tuesday, also =). We had a reading MAP test. We have to practice reading for our next one in Januray so don't worry - we know how to read. Mr.Miller was very funny today because he made a lot of jokes about kids in class. We laugh so hard sometimes. But somtimes we take it seriously. We really enjoy Mr. Miller.♥
