We are running a Penny Drive to raise money for our change-maker project.  The 5/6s & 6/7s are learning how to identify and understand the value of the currency coins and bills of the United States of America. Continuing the Base-Ten Number System work that lead us to our 100th Day celebration and Museum of 100 exhibit, we are analyzing, categorizing, and adding up the collected donations daily. Stop by our classroom to check out the evidence of our progress! Thank you to all of you who have tossed coins and bills into our little silver can! Please continue to do so as no amount is too small but no change at all leaves us with nothing to investigate! All proceeds will go to the TBD beneficiary of the 5/6s & 6/7s change-maker project.

(definition by the 5/6s & 6/7s)
