So… back to my spiel about why I always tell my students to check their work. I always ask them a single question, “Does their answer make sense?” If they say “no,” they have to go back and see what they missed. If it does, awesome!
Someone working at our local Walmart forgot to check their work. If energy drinks prices are going up to $98 a can, I think I may begin to worry… However, it did make a great start to my math lesson last week. My 5th graders got a good laugh out of their bell ringer word problem.
