We had a lesson on the difference between problems like 3x4 and 4x3 since we have been working on our multiplication unit and they got bored of arrays :) They picked a problem, drew both arrays, switched the numbers and wrote a story problem that represented one of the mult problems. The students had a ball!

6th Grade Orchestra Closing Concert

"Your kids were FANTASTIC!  I thought that they did a marvelous job.  Even Principal Brown commented that this is the best performance by this group that she's heard yet.  That's quite a compliment, as we've had several strong groups already.  I hope that you fully enjoyed their efforts on Monday evening.  Thank you for turning out to watch them demonstrate what they've been learning all year," said Mr. Russell Hansen.  "Each student has contributed to many different facets of the course.  It's been a thrilling ride!"  Thank you, students, and THANK YOU, Mr. Hansen, for an amazing year!
