We took our timed test and many students are already progressing with their facts...waaaaahoooooo!!! I am so pumped to already see some progression! We also learned some tricks for remembering what some factors can do to the other number in which they're multiplied. For instance, 0s are heroes because when multiplied by ANY number, the 0 prevails because the product is ALWAYS...ZERO! 1, is a bit of a loser...no matter which number it faces in a multiplying face off, it always lose and the other number wins to become the product. We tried thinking of other tricks that would work for other numbers.

We got 4, yes FOUR random compliments from people around the building today!!! So, to celebrate, I took the students outside for some extra recess. With praise like that, they really deserved it! Awesome behavior that meets and exceeds expectations deserves to be rewarded!
