The cold and flu season has taken hold (and Credit Recovery) so we were down a few classmates today. However, we reviewed mental math strategies with doubles again today, and spent some relaxing time on practice problems.
It was great to be back in class today!
We worked on Mental Math the entire time!!! I had another activity planned, but everyone was so determined to finish their booklet work that I really didn't want to interrupt that! :)
I must say, as a whole, we have a great group of mental mathematicians. (I was impressed!) I observed great strategies while I was walking around the room!
We went through the powerpoint below (slides 0-12) together and then worked diligently out of our Mental Math Booklets completing sections for outcome B16.

Just wanted to give a shout out to everyone for a job well done! Lots of assignments completed and completed well!
Probably the most inspiring part of my day though was to see everyone working so cooperatively. Thank you to the folks that helped their classmates email assignments or walked their classmates through the process of seting up an email account.
Also, wanted to say thanks to those who used their time so effectively. Nice to see students making such productive use of their time. "I'm finished Mrs. O'Leary. Can I work on something for another class?"
