March 24, 2011



Boy, did it rain today. We spent the day indoors, doing math, art, and our usual routines, sans art which we had on Monday.

We rolled pairs of dice for the first part of the morning, recording the resulting sums to see what would happen. I don't know how many students are supposed to see that since there are more ways to roll, say a 7 than there are to roll a 2 or a  12 that you can expect to see more 7s and 8's. I think two students "got" it. For most it was an exercise in process and counting and combining spots on dice.

Here's the final result of our rolls:


We had recess indoors. Several students spent some time at the art table:

Could all this rain turn us all into Merpeople?

Rebecca drew this one for me.


The great thing about drawing Mermaids is not having to worry about feet and legs.


News:

We will have new table groups starting tomorrow. I think everyone will be pleased by the new table groups.

The books we sent home yesterday for homework do not need to be returned. You'll get one more late in the year. Please do the activities in them.
