5th Grade Mathematician of the Week!

Amber Craig

Each week, three students are selected as the mathematician of the week. Students exhibiting perseverance, achievement, and enthusiasm in math on a consistent basis are chosen. These students are celebrated in front of their peers, featured on the wall of fame, receive a certificate along with a homework pass and a treat of their choice. I also post pictures of the students on our class Instagram page! Congratulations to our recent 5th Grade Mathematicians of the Week:
