Mrs. Thomas's classroom is decorated with all things Harry Potter, so she incorporated this theme (specifically the book The Goblet of Fire) when planning for today's math boot camp. She told the students they were participating in the Math Wizard Tournament. Students received pencil wands with strips of paper, and Mrs. Thomas dressed up to reinforce the theme and create excitement.
Math questions were put on the board one at a time. When students finished answering each question, they put their answers into the "goblet of fire." After all submissions were placed into the goblet, Mrs. Thomas and the students reviewed the question and answer to check for understanding.
