Multiplication Hall of Fame Winner

Here's Wil, our guest blogger today!  He is the first (of many we hope) to reach the stars in Multiplication Rocket Math. He reached his goal before the winter break and I proudly offer his comments on how to reach the goal.
Will says," ... You write down the facts without thinking twice about it. When you start getting to the higher levels you start to compete with your friends that are near that level. If you try your best you will be able to beat rocket math."  

Gooney Bird Greene

Every now and then you read a book that is sheer fun! We loved this character created by Newberry award winning author, Lois Lowry.  After a week of chuckling and raising our eyes in amazement over the "stories" of GBG, we all agreed that the theme of the story, "Everyone has a story to tell!" is very true.  Great time to connect to our own writing efforts this month.  Everyone had an opportunity to model themselves after one of the most striking traits displayed by Gooney Bird Greene. She loves being the "center of attention" and her unique fashion style makes that happen very quickly when she arrives at her new school. Here are some inspired students who definitely found themselves "smack in the middle of everything" this week, just like Gooney Bird Greene! Such creativity!
