Each month the South School Math Liaisons, Mrs. Sherri Russell and Ms. Jessica Gabriels, coordinate an estimation station. Students k-5 are to 'estimate' in mathematics. This month Kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Kalianiotis and Mrs. Webster, designed a clever challenge using marshmallows to represent snowballs in a jar. Olivia, a kindergarten student, recently estimated that there were 4o0 marshmallows in the jar. When asked how she derived her "guesstimate" she answered " I thought in my head how many there were." Other students are photographed as closest winners to the actual amount of 325 znd received math pencils on Friday!
Mrs. Mulvey will keep the community connected to various news and events through blog postings.
