The Creative Problem Solvers came up with three team names from which to choose.
Learning Hedgehogs, Owls of Fury, and CPS Robokids.

There were some interesting observations in our Week of Inspirational Math activity.

Period 6 students are almost done with their Venn Diagram Getting to Know You Activity.

I have learned a few more names of students. Little by little, I'll get them!

Students began the Four 4s activity from Jo Boaler's Week of Inspirational Math and shared some excellent expressions.

Students stacked the chairs at the end of the day.

My Creative Problem Solvers did their first Group problem using clue cards from Get It Together.



Over 75% of my students returned the parent letter!
Students worked on brainstorming for the Venn Diagram Getting to Know You lesson and a few got started collecting information.
