We got back to it this week! Monday I loved seeing all the kiddos back. We had exciting classroom news when we had a Paw Pat winner during the morning announcements!
The day got better and that evening, when my Clemson Tigers took the championship win for college football. Both of my parents went to Clemson; I was born in Anderson, South Carolina; and I attended Clemson. This was a special win for me and my family.
We started a Problem of the Week (P.O.W.). I told the students to try the problem with their families this weekend. We finally solved it on Friday, so your child should have the answer. If your child needs a reminder of the problem, here you go:
A milkman has an 8 liter jar, a 5 liter jar, and a 3 liter jar. Currently, the 8 liter jar is full of milk while the 5 liter and the 3 liter jars are empty. He reaches a house and a woman asks for 4 liters of milk. However, the milkman has no 4 liter jar and has no markings in the existing jars. How can the milkman pour milk into the jars in such a way that he can sell 4 liters of milk to the woman without throwing any milk away or giving her extra milk? (You can’t pour half the milk into the 5 liter gar as the widths are different.)
Thank you for being wonderful families in our classroom. Your support makes my job feel a lot less like work — so glad to be back with my favorite kids for another great semester!
