Deon, Third Grade
My favorite part of school is when we have PE. And recess. I’m in advanced classes because I think out of the box. Advanced classes give me a lot of homework, but it’s really fun.
Darius, First Grade
My favorite part of first grade is learning math. Today I learned subtracting. It’s easy! I have straight As.
Dylan, Fifth Grade
Today I did decimals. Decimals are easy. We’ve been doing them since fourth grade. I like Math. When I grow up I want to be a YouTuber and tell people math facts.
