This is a true story that just might make you chuckle. One day I asked my students to get their math journals. One of my students asked, "Did you say to get our math GERBILS?" I replied, "Yes, go get your math gerbils." The name has struck and now my students smile each day when I ask them to get their gerbils.

We had talked about vertex and verticies in math the last few days. We went to a science convocation for the whole school. She asked if anyone knew what a vortex was and my kids all raised thier hands. When they didn't get called on, the looked at me and said, "corner?" They are always thinking about math!
