Adding and Subtracting Mixed Numbers (continued)

Today we just continued adding and subtracting mixed numbers.  After completing the assignment, I asked students to work on Think Through Math.

Don't forget our rewards:

  • As a 5th grade, we have a goal of Think30.  Every student who reaches this goal by April 20, will go to Chuck E. Cheese and a movie with me in May.

  • Every time a student passes 5 lessons, their name is added to our chart and they earn a bead for their Outdoor School necklace AND $10 PRIDE bucks to use in the AWEsome store.

  • Students have been donating points to earn a class reward from TTM.  Two of the classes have opted to earn a pizza party, while the third class has opted to donate $50 to Make A Wish.

  • Don't forget night and weekend rewards also!  All of the rewards above are earned over nights and weekends, but we also earn $20 PRIDE bucks for every 45 minutes spent working on passing a lesson on TTM, as well as extra credit in the gradebook!
