Candy Graphing

We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend.  This Mercado was filled with wonderful lessons on teamwork, entrepreneurship, and math.  This week, each student balanced their Mercado work with lessons, written work, and Galileo assessments.  We are grateful for those team members who stayed until all cleanup and accounting jobs were done.  

This weekend, the children have a practical life/math task  to count, sort and record data relating to the treats they collect for Halloween.  Your child should have these attachments already in their backpacks unless they left before Lunch.  Students only need to complete the first 3 columns of their data and we will work on the rest in class, unless they want to work ahead.  Children are also welcome to classify any other items they have in larger amounts, such as rocks, baseball cards, shoes, etc.  

If you have any questions, feel free to email me.  This work is designed to apply math in a fun way and also learn some important statistics and technology lessons. We hope you all have a fun and happy weekend!
