It is almost time for Thanksgiving break! I know I can’t wait to rest and recharge.
This week I signed my students up for a computer game, Prodigy. My students LOVE this game! You can set assignments, differentiate grade levels and it is ALL FREE!!! There is a paid version for students but it is not necessary. Every thing for the teacher is FREE!!! The game provides them with questions, and even allows them to use aids such as base ten blocks or markers to help them solve the questions. If you would like to check it out here is the link! Let me know what you all think about it!
I started out the week with Types of Taxes. In our state, the standard calls for all students to understand these four types of taxes, property, payroll, income and sales tax. I first had students research and define each type of tax. We then put our definitions on to a Padlet. From those definitions, we developed our own definition.
