This week was busy on Team Spencer. We have updated our tax system to reflect differing economic status within our class. Mason has come up with a system where we pay based on how much we have. The ownership of the utilities, paper, pencils, scissors and other supplies, has changed from Spencer to Mason and Josiah. The class taxes now go to them, so that they may provide these resources to the class. Friday we had another art sale; this one to benefit UNICEF. The students wanted to donate to a cause that helps children. We have also elected a new President. Ben is the new President of The United Kids of Team Spencer. Congratulations!!
We have almost finished up our first draft of our Hero's Journey stories and some of us are beginning the revising stage and making sure our work is perfect.
In Math, our baking project is in full swing. On Tuesday, we calculated what ingredients we need and how much of each ingredient we will need for the all of the recipes. It was a lot of adding. On Thursday we went to the grocery store and had to decide how much to buy. On Friday we followed the recipe and made cupcakes. Yum!!
