Today was a GREAT way to end the week. We started the morning with a field trip to IMPACT BANK where we toured the bank, saw how coins are sorted, learned how the machine gets money from cars in the drive through to employees working in the window, were locked in the safety deposit box vault, and then learned TONS of information about how banking works. The people at Impact were SUPER IMPRESSED with all we are doing in our classroom with money. They loved that we are all practicing with a checkbook! One of them even gave Mrs. Elder and Mrs. Jenkins an idea for how to teach us with our accounts about real life mishaps and real life bonuses. They just may start having us see how something like a birthday or a flat tire change our outlook on a week.
Before we knew it, we had run out of time and our Friday had come and gone! This weekend they ALL do have a progress report to show you. Please sign these and send them back to me on Monday so I know you have all had a chance to see them.
Progress reports and a math morning work paper are the only two things they need to take care of this weekend!
Have a SUPER weekend!
