On November 4th Gunston Middle School held an International Potluck. Our school celebrated all of the wonderful countries and cultures represented at Gunston. The night was filled with delicious foods, beautiful music, and fun entertainment. As a part of this celebration, Network 21 premiered Ms. Meyers' Hello Goodbye video. Enjoy and Share with others.
Watch this video by Ms. Formoso that includes a special "mathy" twist on a popular Taylor Swift song!
Follow along with the lyrics shown below (The chorus lyrics appear in the video.)
It was first grade when I first saw you, I close my eyes, the flashback starts, I'm sitting there In my little chair. See the ones, see the twos and threes See the fours, see the fives So long ago.... little did I know
That you were math, you were my future My daddy said stay away from counting on your fingers Borrowing came next, I was begging you please go slow.... And I said: (CHORUS)
I moved on; it was multiplication Then on to the dread long division Close my eyes; I can do this if I try.
You were math, you were my future My daddy said stay away from counting on fingers Algebra came next, I was begging you please go slow... And I said: (CHORUS)
Number line save me, They try to tell me how to feel The struggle's difficult, but it's real Don't be afraid, I'll make it out of this mess It's a math story Everybody say YES.
I was calculating Wondering, could the answer be found? My faith in me was fading When will I figure it out? (CHORUS)
And I said Math, you're wonderful I never have to be alone I love you, and that's all I really know You be the plus and I'll be the minus It's a math story, everybody say.... YES
Special thanks to Mr. Rinker, Mr. Stewart, Mr. Costner, Ms. Formoso, and the awesome student back up singers!
