As In a Blender

Today in Math, I was incredibly pleased with how well the kids seemed to learn the concept of adding positive and negative numbers. We used the idea of red and blue poker chips, the illustration of digging holes and putting ladders in them, and the idea of looking at which digit is highest to tell whether the answer would be negative or positive.

We also learned a few things about Lewis and Clark, possessive pronouns, the states of matter, and a thing or two about Colonial Days.

I think that's all for right now. I will be out tomorrow afternoon, so you may not hear from me for a little bit during that time, and it may be tomorrow night again before I update around here.

Have a great evening!
