Alexander Who Used to Be Rich...

Trying to kill two, three, four, birds with one stone! Here's a lesson that I developed this week to address a variety of elements: common core learning task, STEM across curriculum, TEAM lesson planning, LC mentoring, bench mark review to name a few. I snagged the "We Do" word problems directly from "Alexander Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday," . The money pictures I cut and pasted from Smart Notebook. I haven't actually implemented the lesson yet. I am hoping to video tape it for a STEM class that I am completing.
