Must Have Done Something Right

Friday was a really fun day in 5-1.

First off, it started off well when I was able to just drive right through 116th and Gray without having to take the big detour. I should have known then that it was going to be a pretty good day from the get-go.

My class was awarded their first Big Triangle for their behavior on Thursday (ask them what that means if you don't know). Friday wasn't quite a big triangle, but it was a favorably sized shape for sure.

We worked through a lot of BizTown stuff, but we still have some work to do. The kids were amazed by how much grown-ups have to go through every time they write a check or make a deposit, although I have to admit that it's not quite as complicated as it used to be.

The class took a Quest in Math, and we did a nice little review before taking it.

Finally, our day ended with the hardest Two-Minute Mystery ever--and for the first time ever, a student got it. Congratulations to Grant. As he was saying the answer, I thought, "Is this really happening?" Let's just say that Grant has an uncanny knack for puns and the vanishing Americans.

This week, I have a couple of guest readers lined up--the kids are home from college!

Talk soon. Looking forward to a very abbreviated week.
