We have started working with fractions, decimals and percents. I want students to be able to have a fluid understanding of fractions, decimals and percents. This is a great topic students can use in their everyday life. When shopping encourage students to find the best deals by finding unit rates and by understanding sale prices with percent discounts. Great life skills.
Students have been making a video for the City of Bend – Clean Water Works contest. I am have been very impressed by the videos they have produced. I will be sending out links to the videos, so be on the lookout for your students video.
6th grade pancake breakfast has been a success. I appreciate all the supplies and volunteer help. Students are learning a lot of skills in the kitchen. Maybe they will even cook breakfast for you soon.
