Monday with future promises to keep…

Lots of learning going on at RCS today. We had students comparing and contrasting the difference between fractions and decimals, creating a story map for their future story, playing games about time and money, reading nonfiction about fungi, playing football, singing songs, creating multiplication sets using Popsicle sticks, using 10 frames to play memory, and lots of wonderful reading imaginative stories. Wow!
One of the great lessons I saw today was watching students prepare and perform campaign speeches in fifth grade. Many of the students developed wonderful slogans “Zach always has your back!” Developed imaginative ideas such as comic book computer based drafting during computer time. And most importantly I watched them ponder over the very difficult choices of choosing the best representative over a best friend. Although the winners have lots of promises to keep, I think every student won today because they were able to take part in the American system of being able to vote and not worry about the consequences after. Nice job kids! Great job building that experience Mrs. K!

RCS week 4 Video

It’s so hard to believe that we have been in school for over a month. Time really does fly when you are having fun. There were so many wonderful. Earning opportunities it was difficult to catch everything and I try as hard as I can to be share in the experiences. Simply wow! Have a wonderful weekend unwind and get ready to venture into October. Enjoy!

Math problem of the week

How many different coins would I need to make 78 cents.
Try to solve this problem using the least amount of coins that you can.
Try to solve this problem using quarters, nickels, dimes, and pennies.
And last try to give a solution that you think no one sitting next to you would come up with. (Not 78 pennies)
Good luck. Winners announced next Wednesday at the all school meeting. Good luck!
