Do You Know Your Number Forms?

Mrs. Yollis' class is learning about numbers.  They have learned about:

STANDARD FORM:    2,345 

EXPANDED FORM:   2,000 + 300 + 40 + 5

WORD FORM:  two thousand, three hundred forty-five

Here is another example of the three forms we learned:

In the comment section, make up a number and write it out in standard form, expanded form, and word form. 

Challenge someone to a number!

Remember:  Do NOT use any personal numbers or words in your comment! No addresses, no phone numbers, and no last names!

Welcome Back! 2014-2015

Welcome back to a new school year! 

 Here's a video greeting from Mrs. Yollis!


Here is the photo I mentioned in my Welcome Back video. After many days of practice,  Buck was able to master the skill of dock diving! 

Go, Buck! Go!
