I teach math using the structure of Math Daily 3, where students are given choice on how they spend their time. Their options are: Math by Myself, Math Writing and Math with Someone. It is so powerful to see how invested my students are in their work! I love seeing their problem solving and teamwork skills in action on a daily basis!
This trimester our science/social studies unit of study is mountains. Some new learning that was discovered is that volcanos are actually mountains! This information was fascinating to my students. We then made our own paper mache volcanos! Pictured below are the final products!
