Spirit Week Fun

We had a blast getting ready for the FSA by dressing different ways for these past few Spirit Days.  Our favorite was today, Wacky Tacky Wednesday.  Our students are definitely wacky but in an AWESOME way! Your teachers are little wacky too by the looks of this picture.

We are so very excited for all of you to shine on the FSA. You are all so bright and you've already made us proud as your teachers.  Now, it's time to show everyone else just how smart you are. 
We love you! :)

Super Secret Project for Parents

You have a super secret project that you should be working on at home. Details came home today on a pink sheet of paper. It is due by March 13th. If you missed this paper, please email your child's homeroom teacher! :)

Organizing our Math Work

This week in math, students have been solving multi-step problems. For example,
 Miss Russell baked 3 pans of cookies. Each pan has 10 cookies.  She dropped 12 of them and her dog ate them! (Bad Enzo!) How many cookies does she have left? 
Solve this problem and leave us a comment.

They have been working hard to write the information as expressions and equations. In skills block, students have learned how to solve problems containing parentheses.  Check out our classroom charts below:
Can you solve the problems on the second chart? Leave us a comment with your answers.
