Which One Doesn't Belong?

Which One Doesn't Belong (WODB) is a favorite math task amongst our New Castle Spartans! In this task, 4 related images are shown together. Then, the teacher asks "Which one doesn't belong?" and gives students time to think independently. Finally, students are asked to name which image doesn't belong and give their reason. Students are encouraged to find as many reasons as time allows.

Family Task and Discussion: Using the image below (shape 17), Which One Doesn't Belong and why? Make sure you explain your reason!

Check out the WODB website for more pictures!

Watch for the Facebook post on Wednesday to identify

Which One Doesn't Belong and share your reason!

Student Absence Form

If your child has been or is going to be absent for an upcoming appointment or any other reason, you can submit that information by clicking the button above.

Breakfast and Lunch are provided FREE OF CHARGE for all students!

All students will have access to a free breakfast and lunch every day!

Be mindful that even if your child brings breakfast and/or lunch with them, we CANNOT DENY students access to the meals that we have in school, so if you do not want them to eat a school breakfast/lunch or have concerns about the possibility of them eating a double lunch (the one that bring from home and what we offer in school) and ending up with a tummy ache, please have that conversation with your scholar. :-)
