This week, we have concentrated on making and finishing another big math project. We wrote probability books. This is what you see above. The design of our new board was even suggested by our very own classmate, Sydney. So helpful. The vision of our bulletin board was all her own, which I was very thankful for, because I am not the most visually artistic person. It’s just further proof by how important teamwork is, especially in our classroom.
So, our probability books are creative and fun. The students picked a subject that they wrote the book on (many chose to write about animals) and had to come up with scenarios ranging from Impossible-Improbable-Possible-Very Possible-Certain. The stuff that their creative minds came up with range from amazing to hysterical. Good work was done by all. These fun books are now in display in the hallway, where anybody can see them and read them.
Our next big writing project – making our personal narratives. I’m thinking of maybe doing them through BitStrip, but I’ve never used it. Might be time to look through and do a little research to see if it’s tangible. While fun, it might be better saved for another project. Maybe a fun writing project during EQAO to take the edge off?
