I just want to take a moment and brag about the 5th graders. They did a fantastic job at Brookshire’s today. I heard great math conversations when solving for best prices, cost per item, and cost according to weight. We are gathering all of the great pictures and will post them on the White Oak Intermediate Blog and Facebook page.
Next week, we will match equations, with variables, to word problems. This will require students to pay attention to careful details when problem-solving. Students will also be using magazines and sale papers to Christmas “shop” for others. This assignment will require help from you. If you have any sale papers, magazine, or catalogs that you would like to donate to students to cut apart please send before Wednesday.
Can’t believe it is already December!
