To start off our Halloween fun, we did an “Unlock the Box” activity in math. Students had a series of math problems that built on one another that solved clues. The clues led the students to a missing key that unlocked a box of prizes. Everyone worked very hard and had a great time!

In our class, we have the 6 P’s that we focus on: prompt, polite, patient, productive, prepared, and positive. Today, each student chose one “P” that they would like to improve on and wrote a goal on how to achieve that.
Students work together on a map skills booklet.

Before we start Walk-to-Math next week, we’re brushing up on our Place Value skills!
Students worked on creating a board game! The game cards have questions comparing numbers, ordering numbers, and value of numbers. Students also had the option to write a number riddle, write about the importance of zero, or write a number riddle. Students loved making a mystery picture puzzle, as well!
The “Build a Tower” station was a favorite! Students built a tall tower, then counted up the value of the tower!
