1 (Bell ringer is on the board!) French Numbers !(Bell ringer is on the board!)Essential Question:Why are numbers much more difficult than any other French numbers?
2 A quick explanation… (No need to write this down) There is no actual term for seventy, eighty, or ninety… at least, not in the way that we think of them, like when quatre becomes quarante, or when cinq becomes cinquante.Rather, it’s sort of like math… all numbers just add from 60. Eighty is made by 4x20, and then for 81-99, you add from there.
