The positive student behavior, work, and attitudes have filled another ginormous Reese's Mug! And this is how our class celebrated with a fraction model to show the choices!
Emily and Benja who are Teacher's Assistants this week did the tally work. Each student got to choose between one salty Cheez It or one sweet Sour Patch chewy. As the kids chose, the TAs colored in the fraction. That way what was chosen was represented in the fractional model.
The reason there was a choice between salty or sweet is that, at two different Morning Meetings, motions have been made for what will be the reward for all the good stuff the kids are doing. Yet, there hasn't been a unanimous choice even with all the good discussion. So today, I thought it would be fun to do an experiment and see which direction the class would go and made a hypothesis that it would be about 1/2 and 1/2 from the discussions. And look-- completely different outcome!
