 Your child will write a check for anything you choose (food, clothes, going to the bathroom). Have fun with it!
 After they write the check, they will cut it out and put it on the poster.
 They can decorate it.
 They must write 8 checks at home. If you need more let me know.
What to keep in mind?
 It must be neat. I told them to use printing on the check, except for the signature.
 Numbers are made up by you. Only go up to the millions.
 I would have them write it on a piece of paper first. Then, put it on the check. I will grade for accuracy when using word form.
 Write only one check a day. It is less overwhelming.

5A Fraction Cooking Project
5A Fraction Cooking Project
Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s),
The 5th Grade On level class will be doing a fraction project. They will choose a No Bake recipe that uses fractions. They can either work in a group or independently. The goal of this project is to connect fractions to a real life activity. On project day, they should have the ingredients, mixing bowls, measuring cup, and anything else they need to make it. They will have access to a microwave and a refrigerator. They can, also, choose a recipe using an oven if they make a video at home. I would, also, like for them to have made either way. This way each child in the class can try it. They do not need to double the recipe. We can cut the food into small pieces, because it is meant to be a taste only. For example, we can cut 12 pieces into 24 pieces. The project will start when we get back from break. On Friday, I want to know what they plan to make. I am excited to see what each student comes up with.
The dates are:
February 24, 2017 Rose and Maddie
February 27, 2017 David
February 28, 2017 Sam V.
March 1, 2017 Mia
March 2, 2017 Alex J, Ethan, and Diego
March 3, 2017 Zailee
March 6, 2017 John and Colin
March 7, 2017 Jake, Xavier, and Julien
March 8, 2017 Grace
March 9, 2017 Alex A. and Mateo
March 10, 2017 Jill and Mayan
Note: The dates can be changed based on how many students are in groups and how many would like to work individually.

About Me
My name is Miss Bianchi. I am a graduate of Saint Xavier University. I got my degree in Elementary Education. I, also, have my Mathematics and ESL endorsement. I have worked as an aide, substitute, interventionist, and STEM teacher for Stellar Girls. My goal for math students is to teach them how to think mathematically. It is important to teach students the skills to become a great mathematician. I am excited to teach at St. Mary’s this year!
