Day 67: The One where We Read about Midpoints

This unit has been a chance to try and explore and tweak new things. One thing I’ve been exploring is the 3 Reads protocol, where we read over a word problem (minus the actual question) 3 times to look for the main idea, the numbers, and something we wonder.

We tried one today that felt a little less successful as the context felt a bit forced. (This is also interesting as it feels like this unit, which is short due to its placement in the year, lacks a context for the kiddos to wrap their heads around and engage with) Still, we made sense of numbers and thought about midpoints.
