Thinking Inside the Box

Usually people talk about thinking outside the box, but today I asked my class to do the opposite. For our daily literature response, my students write the date in a box at the top of the paper. The box is smallish and their handwriting is largish, which always presents a challenge… which inspired today’s challenge: fit the entire date in the box with only the “p” and the comma extending below. Pretty impressive results, I’d say, and a wonderful way to end the month!
