Where Has Polly Gone
How many times have you become distracted in class? I’m sure that everyone has at least one horror story about their daydreams becoming their nightmare. Where Has Polly Gone? is about an ostrich named Netta that has a hard time paying attention in school. On the last day of school, a diversion outside causes Netta to miss the entire Math lesson on polygons. Netta becomes so engrossed with the distraction that she falls out of her chair and her glasses break into tiny polygons! Mrs. Heed, the teacher, calls on her to answer the question on polygons, but she cannot read the board, and she is extremely confused because she wasn’t paying attention! In all of the chaos, Mrs. Heed’s question, “Where is the Polygon?” becomes a big misunderstanding and Netta assumes that Polly is gone. Netta spends her summer vacation traveling all over the world looking for Polly. Each place that Netta visits has an abundance of polygons, starting with triangles and ending with decadrons. However, Netta doesn’t realize that polygons are all around her! Where Has Polly Gone? http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FHOZIKQ

Treatment for ADD/ADHD isn’t just about taking medication. There are many other effective treatments that can help kids with ADD/ADHD improve their ability to pay attention, control impulsive behavior, and curb hyperactivity.

We are excited to share “Where Has Polly Gone? Polygon Competition!” Polygons are found in everywhere in our environment. Some are more obvious than others. As a part of our competition, we would like you to capture a polygon found in your environment and display it in the form of art. You may take a picture, draw, paint, digitally animate or create a form of art to represent a polygon found in your environment. The art submissions must be submitted to wherehaspollygone@gmail.com by November 10 with your name, age, and address. http://wherehaspollygone.com/polygon-competition/
