Another way to show our love of Geometry, aside from our final geometry project, was to make flipbooks! The students were given the directions of including 4 translations, 4 rotations, and 4 reflections with no other requirements. Some students had fun getting creative with shapes moving around the page, while others chose to move objects around the page. This project was a great way for the students to show what they had learned and embracing their creative sides!
The students also submitted their final geometry projects this week which fashioned pictures of symmetry and shapes in their lives with the added bonus of finding the surface area and volume of some of those rectangular prisms. We got to get very creative with our geometry sides.
Looking forward we will be moving on to Statistics and Probability.
This week we celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday by dressing up and reading a lot. Each day we had a quote of the day to remind us of Dr. Seuss' teachings. We spent our Thursday morning, the anniversary of Dr. Seuss' birthday, reading with our buddy class. Students had the opportunity to read to their buddy as well as be read to by their buddy. Students also read silently while sitting with their buddy. It was a very fun celebration of reading and Dr. Seuss.
