Today is the last day of February! I can't believe it is already going to be March. This year is flying by.
Yesterday in class, the kids seemed to do very well with the mean, median, mode and range.
Today we are going to be working on a project that is due on Friday. Everyone must participate either in a group or individually on the project. They are going to be creating a poster for mean, median, mode, and range and illustrate them so that they can remember what they stand for and help other kids remember as well. The grade level is going to be voting for them to see which one is the best. I want them to be in color. I will take them to a print shop and turn the winner into a colored poster and have it laminated and distribute it to the other math teachers in the building to hang up in their rooms for when they teach it as well. I hope this motivates them to do a good job.
In social studies, we will be beginning the background essay tomorrow. I am trying not to do anything new with them while the GSP kids are out of the room. I will be giving extra credit for the posters. It will go onto their DAILY grades. The better they do, the more credit they can get. Anywhere from 25 to 100 points, depending on the quality of work. GSP kids are welcomed to participate in this contest as well.
Have a great Wednesday!!!
