Dear Mathematicians, Please use this valuable time to calculate how many hours/minutes/seconds there are in three days. For those students who want to earn a Knights Pledge, try to figure how many hours/minutes/seconds you are in school. (Use from 8:00 to 2:45) Hint: You can use the commutative property of multiplication and/or the associative property. Example: 5 days x 24 hours per day=120 hours 5 days x 24 hours per day x 60 seconds = 7200

Dear Students Who Are as Bright as the Stars in the sky, What you just read was a simile. It compares to things, usually with the words “like” or “as”. Think of a simile that can describe YOU. (It must be kind to you, not silly, and appropriate!). For example, “My name is Mrs. Biondi and I am as busy as a bee gathering honey before a storm”. Write your simile on the card and illustrate it. Bring it to Morning Meeting. Please make sure it is colorful so we can display them.

Good Morning Morning Meeting focus: What does winter mean to you? Fill in one of the charts on the board, writing your response on a Post It. Make sure you initial your name next to your response. Some examples from the past were: Winter smells like hot cocoa on a cold day. Winter looks like icicles hanging from my trees, waiting to be picked. What your Morning Work is: Please work on Math Boxes 5.6 and 5.7

We have done probability experiments before. Today I would like you to try a dice experiment about this question: What is the probably of rolling a factor of 6? You will each roll one die once and instead of tally marks, write the number you used in the correct column.
