On Monday, I got to share that our Donor's Choose project "Nuts about Numbers" had been fully funded! Our materials arrived and we began using them this week as we began our unit on measurement! We received math trays, Unifix cubes, counting activities, weighted numbers, and 2 types of balances thanks to several generous donors.
We also found a surprise from Rocky. He made himself a chair out of our crayon boxes... and gave us all NEW crayons! We also had a scare. He fell out of his chair when we got out some stickers for great work (they were peppermint flavored, after all). Thankfully, Mrs. Best caught him before he hit anything major.
On Tuesday, he was still a bit sore from his fall, so he had to rest.
Today Rocky came back to watch over us on top of our projector. We were surprised to find a mess on our carpet this morning (pencils and name tags just laying in the floor), but were excited to find that he dumped out a pencil box to fill it with new pencils under the tree!! Each student got a brand new Christmas pencil to work with. It made doing our work SO much fun!
Now we are eagerly waiting for the fun that Rudolph Day will bring tomorrow! Check back soon for an update.
