Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Tuesday, April 30, 2013,
Don't forget to protien up and get enough rest tonight.  We have the MCA math test tomorrow.  You are ready!!  You rock at math!!

Can you believe that guy walking on the roof today?  I took a picture.  He was friendly and nice wasn't he.  Remember, he said he wasn't scared to be walking up there but it sure looked scary from where we were standing.  It would be a long fall!

Did you see them using any simple machines?  I saw them walking up an incline plane.  Blog a comment about what you saw an...

Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Wednesday, April 24, 2013,
Man, there was no happy medium in the report about my class today.  It seems you were either someone who was helpful and fantastic and fabulous OR you were tanking it up at the bottom of the heap.  Why?  What is going on?  I hear Ms. Dahlem at to call parents and deal with some of your antics.  Why?  Oh my, I am pretty disappointed in a couple of you.  You know who you are.  To the rest of you--THANKS for being great helpers.

Today's morning paper asked you to consider the fact that you only h...

Fat Robins Running (Flying) Wild

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Monday, April 22, 2013,
Have you noticed the fat robins?  What is up with that?  I have a link to the St. Paul bird watchers site listed on the LINKS tab.  Click on that, read it and then blog a comment about what you found out.  Respond to someone elses blog too.  If you do this you can have 10 tickets tomorrow.

What did you learn about house building today.  Isn't it fascinating?  Have they worried about the plumbing or the electrical yet?  What do you think?

Snow day tomorrow?  Cross fingers, cross your toes.  It c...

MCA Snafu

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Tuesday, April 16, 2013,
Can you believe you started the test today and then got the error page.  So weird.  I wonder how they'll be able to allow you to go back and check your work.  Seems like they'll have to let you.  Will you have to start over with the things you did today?  That would be sad, wouldn't it?  Oh my, just give us the paper version please.

Be sure and enjoy Casey at the Bat with your family tonight.  Have your dad read it like an old time radio announcer.  It is quite a famous poem.  Have your parent...

Train Video

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Tuesday, April 9, 2013,
Have you watched our class video again?  Do you remember where to find it?  Did you know it's homework to blog about your favorite part?  Look it up!!  Share it with a family member.  Enjoy.  I agree with David, I kind of tear up.  Especially at the end when there is that great picture of  you guys in the grasslands and the words are "I know you'll always be here, with me."  You will always be with me, in my heart!!

Heartbroken and Heartfelt

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Friday, April 5, 2013,
So, I am a bit heartbroken by the whole "nasty words on the flyer" incident.  It has tainted my view of my awesome class.  So sad.  I really wish the person who wrote them would step up and own it and write me a note saying "Sorry, it was me etc."  Hmm...I don't want to have it looked at by Ms Dahlem but I guess I might have to.  So sad.  I just love you guys and think you are wonderful and then it catches me by surprise when something like this happens.  If it was you, the best thing you cou...

Back In Full Swing

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Wednesday, April 3, 2013,
It's like we were never gone!  We are having a busy yet productive and fun week.  I can't believe tomorrow is already Thursday.  Four day weeks sure fly by.  I could get used to this!

Please have some fun with the math games listed in the links section of this website.  Also, if there is an area you struggle with, go to the math playground link and watch a video on how to do it.  Have mom or dad watch it with you and see if you can't get 'er nailed down.  Sometimes you just need someone else t...

All About Me


Jamie Lyn Kovacs I am married to John Kovacs and have 5 sons, John age 33, Jim age 31, Joe age 26, Jake age 24, Vlad age 22. I also have 3 grandchildren, Jack and Lydia, who are the kids of my oldest son and his wife, and Baby Kennedy who is the newborn of my second son and his wife. The older kids are 5 and 2. My family lives in White Bear Lake. ____________My son John is married and lives in Turkey with his wife Pamela and son Jack and daughter Lydia. Hey, that makes me a grandmother--yikes! John is a teacher too. A couple years ago he taught at White Bear Lake but for the last couple years he's been teaching social studies to middle school kids at Hope Academy in Minneapolis. He also has taken classes at a seminary. He wrote a book called "The Historia" which you can buy on Amazon.com. He was a hockey player and played college hockey at Bethel. His wife is a lawyer worked at a big law firm in Minneapolis. Cool! Hey, guess what. I am a lawyer too!! This will be my 13th year teaching as I practiced law for over 15 years. Teaching is way more fun!! Now they are living in Turkey and simply trying to learn the language and make connections. This year my son will be teaching high school world history at an international school. __________My son Jim lives in Blaine with his wife Courtney. They both graduated from Winona State where they were star pitchers on their baseball and softball teams. Jim graduated from St. Thomas School of Law. He clerked for a judge and now he works for a law firm in Golden Valley. His wife graduated from Des Moines University Medical School where she studied to be a physical therapist. She works for Twin Cities Orthopedics. You can check out pictures of their wedding on the summer vacation tab. __________My son Joe graduated from Moorhead State. He, like his brothers was a good athlete and loved sports. He also is a great singer and performer and was Danny Zuko in Grease, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, and Curly in Oklahoma--all in WBL high school. He has a teaching license and did some long term subbing in WBL most recently at Hugo Elementary School. Next he worked at Infinite Campus training teachers on software that his employer makes. He got to travel all over the United States. He is married to Emily, and there are pictures of them you can check out on the vacation tab as well. Emily is a pharmacist for CVS in Targets. They just moved to Washington DC so he could attend George Washington University and get an MBA. __________My son Jake graduated from University of Minnesota with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. He is a superstar in math. He was a TA for a professor in the computer science department. He really likes to golf and was on the White Bear Lake golf team. He worked at Gem Lake so if you ever golf there, you may have seen Jake. Do you like golf? As soon as he graduated he started working full time at a company that writes online computer games. He spends his day writing code to create games. He loves that kind of writing, do you? He taught many of my students to write code in Scratch. _________Vlad officially became our son in June of 2010 although we have loved him since we met him a couple years before that. We traveled to his homeland, Latvia, 3 times to make him ours. He has been living with us since March of 2010. He graduated from WBL High School too. He traveled to China with the high school a couple years ago and wants to go back. Can you believe that you can travel with your classmates and friends when you are in high school? He is currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin, River Falls. He spent a semester in Seoul, S. Korea in a study abroad program through River Falls. We will officially be empty nesters. _________My husband John works for Collins Electrical Company as a project manager but he is amazing with computers. He set up this web site for me!! Thanks John. He is the IT guy for my mom, his parents, and our whole family!! My husband and I have a cute teddy bear puppy who is 1 and a half years old. He is very spoiled.
