I wanted to post today and share about our tenth day of school. One of my goals this year is to truly teach Math to understanding, not as a process! Inspired by an amazing teacher who I was lucky enough to connect with this summer, today was a day I could spend our math time celebrating our tenth day while developing their understanding.
As we began our math routine today we had a message from the office. There was a special package delivered for our class. I sent our messenger down to pick it up.
The students were quite intrigued by this box that was addressed to our class. They noticed the zero and said "that probably means there isn't anything inside." The girl who brought it in said, "It was very light!" Below the box a book came with it. So, of course they needed to know...so we opened it up!

I found a Linky Party party to add this post to! I'll be visiting again...loving all things Math!
