After our MORNING MEETING we had to take care of our PROBLEM OF THE WEEK which was "WHITE BOARD" this week! Only two of us were able to figure it out... Mr. Milo Elder and Miss Haley Gulick. Milo was the first correct answer Ethan pulled from the bowl so he is this week's winner! WAY TO GO MILO!
For our ESTIMATION JAR this week we had to estimate how many STARBURSTS were in our jar. We had THREE kiddos estimate EXACTLY right. They were Miss Torri Barnett, Mr. Cole Jesseph, and Mr. Ethan Dennis! They estimated that there were 50 starbursts in our jar and they were RIGHT ON! SUPER JOB guys!!
Next, it was time to set up for our LEMONADE STAND! The kiddos did a TERRIFIC job with this. We had 6 different committees: set up crew, clean up crew, making the lemonade crew, selling crew for first lunch, selling crew for second lunch, and an advertising crew. After our jobs were all finished we had our class treasurers count our money! We had a class discussion over what supplies we had to purchase. After buying the lemonade, cups, and jug we spent $30.08 on supplies. We were VERY, VERY EXCITED to learn from our treasurers that during our stand we collected $81.35 which amounted to a PROFIT of $51.27. We have decided that as long as we are LEARNING ALL ABOUT MONEY we may have to do this again! The kids did a SUPER JOB and we learned a lot in the process!
To end the day we had our VERY FIRST AR CELEBRATION of the year. To qualify for this the kiddos had to earn 4 ACCELERATED READER points by yesterday at 3:00. MOST of them were able to get this done! If they did, they were REWARDED with ice cream and a can of rootbeer to make a ROOTBEER float and then we watched "The Little Rascal" movie. I talked to ALL of them because MONDAY starts a BRAND NEW CHALLENGE. Everyone starts over at ZERO points and works to reach their AR GOAL. I will reset everyone's this weekend! Those reading calendars come in handy each night so thanks for helping them keep up with those.
Have a FANTASTIC WEEKEND! Don't forget that tomorrow is the SOUTHWESTERN COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAME! It starts at 1:30 if you are able to come!
