Congratulations to the middle school students for earning another marble party. The students worked together to fill the jar by demonstrating leadership and cooperation. Way to go!
As we wrap up our unit on decimals, the students accepted a challenge to see how quickly they could order decimals least to greatest. In each round, they rolled dice, wrote the number and moved on "Go!" During the early challenge, they were allowed to talk. By the end, they were able to get the numbers in order without talking in under ten seconds. They demonstrated strong understanding of the concept and excellent teamwork!
Students have been working their way through Bridge to Terabithia. They are currently working on designing their own fantasy world complete with rulers, laws, setting and challenges. We will continue the book and project into February.
