## October

Start of the year. We played Buzz, reviewed the teaser problems I put on my flyer and talked about expectations.

Warmed up with an equivalent fraction puzzle and game of 24 cards. Then we worked on a homemade progressive worksheet on the distributive property.

Our first logic grid puzzle and then a little bit with the loop-de-loop exercise.
