Students had a great time placing their "kindness bookmarks" into children's books at the Bedford Branch Library. Thank you to all of the parents who brought their students! What an excellent bucket-filling activity! (Check out the Bedford Press for a great picture and article about our class project!)
In order to learn about polygons, I read the book Shape Up, by David Adler. Students then "participated" in making shapes by using cheese to make triangles, bread to make polygons and pretzels to make angles! The best part was eating our math shapes when we were done!
Students have been busy participating in math rotations! Students are responsible for independent work, working in small groups with the teacher and playing games! This week we played games on our projector!
