The kids have been working on a little something for their Dads. Keep it hidden until Sunday!
We have read half of the BFG. We took a break from the book and watched the movie with our buddy class We are now comparing the book and the movie. We are noticing a lot of differences already! We can't wait for the ending of the book to compare as there were some funny parts in the movie!
Students continue to work on math word problems. Here is our latest one! Ask me how I solved it:
You are a toy builder at the “Tip Top Toy Factory”. Mr. Wheelie comes to your toy factory with a box of 16 wheels. He wants you to build at least 1 bicycle and 1 tricycle, and then use the rest of the wheels to make more bicycles and tricycles. Can you make a plan for Mr. Wheelie to use all 16 wheels to make the them? If you have time, make more than one plan.
For this job:
- Use objects (such counters and popsicle sticks) to show your plan.
- Use pictures and numbers to record your plan on paper.
- Use counting in at least 2 ways to show that your plan will work.
- Have your plan checked by another toy builder before it is sent to Mr. Wheelie.
- Wheelie wants at least 1 bicycle and 1 tricycle.
Have a great Father's Day weekend!
