4th Grade Math
We began a Defined STEM project called "Baker". Students are put in the role of a bakery owner and must come up with a "plan" to sell their specialty item: croissants. We did some research on rent prices, ingredients needed, recipes, demographics and began to form a plan. Groups will create an advertisement for their new bakery as well as a menu that will turn a profit.
This fun project teaches Science, Technology, Engineering and Math all in a real world problem.
Please let me know if you have any experiences you can share about owning a business!
Please be sure to take your survey so we can improve our school! Thank you!
3rd Grade Math
AT Reading 3/4
We are focusing on Direct and Indirect Objects this week as well as revisiting MAP vocabulary words in order to feel comfortable taking our tests next week.
Students read an article about cell phones in school and will be researching this topic next week to have a debate.
Our target skills for the week are author's word choice and fact and opinion.
