Amazing readers utilizing our Reading Challenges bulletin board. Three interactive bulletin boards in our school offer writing and reading enrichment for students that want to develop the complexity of their thinking in Language Arts.

Day 41: Mrs. Lepping’s 6th grade Math Class

For the past few days we have been working with ratio language and diagrams.  Today, we had use that understanding to help “Nana” fix a mistake that she had made with her paint color.  Nana had asked for 1 R to 5 W, but had meant to say 5 R to 1 W.  We had to work to get the ratio she wanted without getting rid of any paint. In the process we dove into the concept of equivalent ratios.
