## Questions

### Subject: Geometry

How many faces, edges and vertices does a cube have?

A cube in a 3-D shape. Draw it first and then count each one at a time. A face is the flat surface of the 3-D shape - a cube has 6 faces. An edge is the line between the shape's faces - a cube has 12 edges. The vertices are the corners of the shape - a cube has 8 vertices.

### Subject: Writing

What are topics that are important to you?

This is a question I ask my students before we ever start writing. We make "heart" maps and "I" maps where students write down all things they know a lot about and things or people that are important to them. This helps all students have an open mind to writing and helps keeps them engaged. When they have confidence writing about topics are they interested in, they will get excited to also write about given topics during the year.

### Subject: Basic Math

Sally sells lemonade on the weekend. On Saturday she made 15 dollars and on Sunday she made 20 dollars. How much money did Sally make all together the weekend?

When you have words like "all together" in a word problem question, that tells you that you will need to use addition to find your final answer. In this case, you need to add together 15 and 20 to find out how much money Sally made. So, $15 + $20 = $35.
