My day waspretty lively today. Here were a few bullet points...
have a set of liquid measurement containers that fit into one another
much like Russian nesting dolls. Today, as I was pulling them out one
at a time, much to the amazement of my kids, I kept hearing one of them
say, "You gotta be kidding me." Cracked me up!!
This was how my statement was intended to go: "When we get back from specials, I'm going to introduce you to Gallon Man." Instead, I got as far as, "I'm going to introduce you to..." when I was interrupted by a boy saying, "Mr. Snowflakes!"
I had a sub for the last hour of class today. I asked her to have the
kids take a big piece of paper, create their own word problem, solve it,
and illustrate it. I even drew an example of what it would look like. Just got back to my classroom, and I have 10 products that all have exactly the same word problem--my example problem. Aaarrrgghh!
