Stanley Cup Starts Tonight!

It doesn't seem right to be talking about hockey when the weather is so nice, but the Final starts tonight!  Hopefully it is a good series.  

We continued our work on probability today, discussing combinations of items.  Here is a lesson, demonstration, and some follow-up questions.  Please note, the first question under "Try It!" involves paints and a canvas.  The answer they are looking for does not match the visual, so skip to Try It 2.  It has visuals of pastas, sauces, and toppings which allow the student to solve the question.  Here is the link:

We are just finishing a story we have been writing about a character who is "coming out of their comfort zone", someone who tries new things and challenges themselves throughout life.  Here is a book that we heard in class, called Miss Rumphius, that goes perfectly with this subject.

Have a good night!
