Boston Cuddliness!

I just wanted to share a couple pictures of our super-cuddly Boston Terrier, Lily. She is the funniest dog, when it comes to getting cuddled up in blankets. She's seven years old, and for years, we'd find her buried under blankets in the morning, never quite sure how she'd get herself under them so well. We now know that she will paw at the blankets, pull them with her teeth, and move them around so that she can duck her head under the edge and then nudge her head under the blankets, farther and farther until she's well underneath. It's so funny to watch! She can be so persistent.

In the first picture here, she had a pretty easy time of getting between the layers of blankets to cuddle up. In the second picture, she was just cuddled up next to my daughter, asleep, covered in her blankets, of course.



We think she is just the cutest!

Math Class - First Day Activity

Rectangle of pentominoes Many 6th graders seem to have a pretty negative attitude about math, so I try to do something interesting to "grab" them during our first class. Last year, during the first math class, we spent part of the period working with pentominoes. Before working with the pentominoes, however, we played a name game so we could learn each others' names (I find it impossible to start anything else if I don't know some names, and fortunately, I learn them fairly quickly). rectangle outline For the activity, I divided the students into groups of 3 or 4. The directions for the activity were not complicated - the task was to make a rectangle, using all of the pentominoes. I gave students an outline of the rectangle, as pictured to the left, so they would know the correct size of the rectangle. The squares in the grid are each one inch. The rectangle is 5 squares (inches) wide and 13 inches long (13 inches includes the row that has the "Pent
