Thar Be Treasure!!!!!

Hi Team!
Our final math project this year is a treasure hunt. The math class was split into pairs that set about making a list of clues to follow in order to get to hidden treasure.  The teams were given tape measures and were asked to make their clues a set of measurements and directional changes (lefts and rights). Their measurements are to be in inches, feet, and yards, or centimeters and meters. The true test will come next week when we try each others instructions and see if we can locate the treasure.

End of the Year!

Hi Team,
There is a lot going on in the last two weeks of school.  We are wrapping up all of our projects and going on our spring field trips.  Here is a link to the proposed schedule for the rest of our time.  Please understand that things are subject to change.  If they do change, I will change the document. 

Please encourage your students to READ READ READ!!!  We are currently still reading The City of Ember.  We need to be finished with it by June 10.  Several students have finished it already, but most have not.  They have been reading at school, but in order to get it done on time, they need to read at home too.  It needs to be returned to school by the 10 in order to do a class assignment.

Please make sure that the lunches packed on Monday 6/06, Thursday 6/09, and Tuesday 6/14 do not need to be microwaved.

Please note that the Field trip on 6/14 to the West Bloomfield Adventure Park starts at 8am!!!!!  We must leave that early to get to the park by 9am.  We will not be back until the end of the day.
Please let me know what questions you have.
