Book Review-Money Madness


MONEY MONEY MONEY!!!
Money Madness is about the history of money. The book teaches us about bartering, coins, paper bills, and even digital money. It's mostly for 2nd graders, but it is also an easy read for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. I recommend this book to anyone who LOVES money!

Rosen.

I started reading this book on Monday and found myself headed back to school tonight (Wednesday) after dinner so I could find out what happened to sweet little Appleblossom in the "monster's house."  I have always thought that I didn't enjoy fictional animal books.  I may be the only person in the world who doesn't like Charlotte's Web.  I am beginning to wonder if it is because of the sadness I felt as a little girl when I read about Charlotte…

We looked at the plans for our newest school addition to reinforce why the planning process is so important and the details that are required for a successful project.



The planning and design process was taken very seriously!

Working in the MakerSpace during the planning process to see what materials are available for their builds.  

A prototype and the plan!

This year I am being a stickler about requiring the kids to build from their plan and not veer off course.  Some tweaks may be necessary but they nee…
