Don’t bet against me when Poland trivia is on the line!

Next week, I’ll be teaching a new student. She’s from Poland, which happens to be the country that I studied and wrote a book report on in the 4th grade. Why is this important? Thanks for asking.

If there is ever a lull in the conversation I can say, “So, tell me about Queen Jadwiga.” or “So I hear that Poland is the world’s 3rd largest coal producing country.” Etc. Etc.

 

So, when your children ask why they are learning fractions or random facts or whatever, you can say “Because there will be a day down the road that you will able to pull that sucker out of your back pocket, wow the world, and then proudly blog about it!”
