Math was fun today. Some of the kids used Explain Everything to create a tutorial video. Others continued working on their ideal school, while a third group practiced explicit instruction around multiplication, measurement, and perimeter. There is a tutorial video below - this is their first take, but at the end of this project students will be creating succinct, powerful learning videos that describe difficult math concepts. Explain Everything, by the way, is an outstanding learning application if you've got an iPad at home!
On Friday, students were given a scholastic order form to complete and return to the school. We will place the order before we go home of Friday of this week, so if you are coming to student led, you can do it then.
If you've got a minute or so, check out the video below so that you can learn how skip counting is connected to multiplication!
Question of the Day:
Pillars hold things up. They can be square, cylindrical, or triangular (among others). What shape do you think is the strongest? Why?
