Each day students are getting more and more creative. They are making coffee, tea, using an oven and even created a fridge. Some students have taken to making cake pops, and even some are making really fancy ones. Our grand opening will be in June and we hope to have real items for tasting!

This week we finished up our how to books. Today students shared their books. Each student worked with a partner to give a glow and a grow to help them peer evaluate their work that they have completed.

|T and D work on their books|
This was a great thing because students really learned from their classmates and they talked about all the great things they did and what they could improve on.
In math this week we are working on problem solving. We start with acting it out, to sketching it to making a model to then showing our work with an equation to then further explaining our work through writing or words.
The problem was: "I saw four girl runners, and then I saw 2 boy runners. Then 3 more runner came by. Students were not sure if the last runners were boys or girls, but they started to sketch out their thinking below. We then acted out the problem.
