Class tidbit of the week

(From a LowK teacher's email to parents) "This week we have been having some decision making in the classroom.  We have a classroom pet (stuffed animal) and the children worked together deciding if it was male or female.  The children voted for the pet’s gender by writing M for “macho-male” or H for “hembra-female” in a small piece of paper.  Then we counted the Ms and Hs and the bigger amount won.  So our classroom pet is a male.  We had 10 children voting for male and 5 children voting for female.  To give you an idea, this is the way that we do math in our classroom."
