Get to know KSPS 4th graders through M&Ms



It's my first year to teach KSPS 4th graders Math, so it was very interesting to know about them through M&Ms game. Every student answered a question according to the color of M&Ms he/she picked. Finally we all enjoyed our time eating delicious M&Ms.
It was nice meeting you my students
