Writing Project and "Left Overs" in Math!

What an absolutely beautiful Thursday... in EVERY WAY! Niko got us started with morning meeting and the clothespin game! We spent much of our morning on a literacy project writing letters and posters around our big night.... OPEN HOUSE! First, we designed posters to thank all the sponsors of our amazing (FREE) dinner preceding Open House. We also wrote letters too! One group letter to the sponsors, and individual letters to our parents, telling them what to look at during Open House! The writing and creating was awesome, and the cooperation and turn taking was even better! Learning how to work together in teams can sure yield some amazing results! In math we stretched our learning with odd and even numbers and talked about "pairs" and "left overs". Deter REALLY stretched our thinking when he said "When you add two odd numbers together, you will always get an even number"! PROFOUND! We tested his theory about 6 or 7 times, and each time, his theory proved true! Way to go Deter! Open House was a huge success, and everyone loved your letter and posters! Thanks to everyone who came out tonight! Especially Mr. Jarzembowski! Way to represent and show you care Mr. Jarzembowski! 2W is truly a special place to learn and grow this year... many great friends, and we're just getting started!
