How are you coming on the stuff I sent home?  Did anyone count how many things they wanted to get done and then divide it by how many days you had to do it and then figure out how much you had to get done each day?  Let me just say, if you haven't even looked at it yet, it's time.  Remember, you are supposed to "reflect" as you go through on what you need to practice and what you already know.  This is your chance to see some problems the like of which you haven't seen in a long time.  Practice some functions, some patterns, some area and perimeter and volume, some shapes, some graphs, some decimals and fractions, some computation, and more.  I gave you some of ALL of that to work on.  Remember, you don't have to do it all, you just have to dabble and try some of each kind of problem.  Also, find some you want to offer up to the class to work together.  If you wonder about it, the odds [that's probability] are that someone else wonders about it too.  Let's help each other prepare for April 4 and 5.  Go team!

Here is a new word ladder game for you to play.  Give clues as usual and answer other people's clues.  Both those actions get you some tickets.  Anybody finding good things for the prize bucket?  Any ideas?  Blog me a comment about that too.

Also, don't forget to go to the LINKS tab on this website and work through some of the math things you are having trouble with.  The last site on the right hand column is sowashco  or something like that and it stands for South Washington County and that is the one!!  Mom and Dad--there are even videos that explain how to do certain types of problems so you can use it to refresh you as the helper as well.
