Highlights of the Week
Smarty's class participated in SumDog math contest with other city schools this week. The contest lasted one week, and each student could answer up to 1000 math questions while playing engaging games. Smarty's class really rose to the challenge and came in first. As a prize, their class got premium SumDog package for free, and Smarty was very excited about that. I think team contests of this kind is a brilliant idea - Smarty's 1000 questions were quite different from her classmates' questions, because of the placement test which placed her in the end of 6th grade in math, but all kids worked hard on their own level and did quite well together.
Smarty spent her after school time this week applying herself to Sum Dog math competition and reading, but she also went outside to play with other kids from our street and built with her Magna Tiles and LEGOs. I will tell you more about that project in my post next Tuesday.

Best Memory of the Week
Smarty came home from school on her own for the first time ever! It's about one mile walk, and she was very proud of herself. I guess her after school days with YMCA are now numbered, we will probably cancel her membership after a spring break.
