Collage of photos from Ashland Elementary School's decimal diner

"May I take your order, please?" was heard throughout the classroom as fourth grade students at Ashland Elementary School took part in the Decimal Diner. Students were hungry for the opportunity to put their newly acquired math skills to use in a fun and engaging way.

"I really liked watching the kids interact with each other, being able to talk to one another, take each other's orders, and ask each other questions. I was also able to see the math that they were doing. Adding and subtracting decimals and checking their work with the calculators. I could see their success," shared Melissa Peppy, fourth grade teacher at Ashland Elementary.

View the below video see how the Decimal Diner provided students with a real-life scenario to practice adding and subtracting decimals.
