Hurricane NEMO?!

Hope everyone on the East Coast is surviving Hurricane Nemo! Snowed in here with my family, enjoying a day of hanging out in my PJs and getting ready for the school week. My brother, formally a Florida resident for the past 4 years, did a pretty good job with the snowblower.

Some of the stations included:

Students filled out foldables in their interactive notebooks

  1. Oh my, what an amount of snow! I can only imagine what that is like. Great hands on idea for integers. Will definitely be using that as a review, adding in other rational numbers. Thanks!
