Jake's Game a Big Hit!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Friday, March 27, 2015,
How are the games coming that some of you are designing?  Jake wrote his in "unreal" as it is free.  He has also used Java Script to write some code for games.  He loves it and is glad you took the time to play his game.  I wonder if he'll try to beat your high score.

Keep posting scores and giving Jake feedback on his game and you can have 4 tickets for every blog you write this weekend.  Happy blogging!!

One More Show

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Sunday, March 22, 2015,
I hope the show is going well tonight.  Break a leg!

There is only 1 more show, tomorrow afternoon.  I hope that is fantastic!!  Break a leg again!

What type of figure of speech is "break a leg"?  Does it mean to literally break your leg.  I hope not as I just wished our actors and actresses would break their leg in the show tonight and tomorrow.  Yikes!  Blog a comment that explains what I mean or tells what type of figurative language that is and you can have 4 tickets Monday.

How many ticket ...

Happy Pi Day!!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Saturday, March 14, 2015,
IF we were at school today, we would have celebrated PI day by having pie.  We would have even been in school at 9:26.53 which is the coolest thing ever about this PI day as it would have been 3-14-15 @ 9:26.53 and PI to the 9th digit after the decimal point is 3.141592653--COOL!!

It might just be so cool that we have to celebrate it's coolness, even if it is on Monday the 16th which is definitely NOT PI day.

Enjoy your day.
Eat some PI.
I will put the new peek on sometime today so check back.  T...
