LCE Kindergarteners use math for project
Little Cypress Elementary kindergarten teacher, Teresa Hargrave, reports that husband Richard visited her and Shannon Bennett’s classes for carpenter-builder day. According to Hargrave, “Richard pre-cut his boards at home, which I recorded with my iPad and showed to them this morning before he started. He explained how he uses math to measure and then all the kids were able to put a screw in the project to have ownership.”
The goal, besides the students learning what a carpenter does, is that the class will help paint and then donate the easel/white board that they helped make to the PTO for the Fall Festival to earn money for the playground.
