Think! Think!

The stakes are pretty high in our weekly "Math Match-Up" math fact competition. If you win, you get to be the winner, and winning is all-around good.

Today during the competition, Alexis was trying to secure victory by mind control. She grasped her teammate LeRoy's head between her hands and spoke directly to his brain.

"Think! Think!" she said. "Math! Math!" Simply saying the name of the subject, Alexis seemed to believe, would imbue him with the needed mathematical prowess. I might just try that for our end of year reading test coming up Friday. "Think! Think!" I'll say. "Main idea! Main idea!" And if that doesn't work, there's always smart gum again.
