After being rudely awoken by my 6-year old at 8:30, I sent a tweet out to my classes:

Tweet or email me your pictures before midnight. And have fun!
(I also posted it on schoology (our online portal) so that everyone had a chance to see it... not just those on twitter.)
It took a few hours (I guess they got to sleep in!) but then I started receiving some pictures. You gotta love when kids do math on their day off!
Here are some of the entries:
I did this a couple of years ago, too.
I'm bummed (but not surprised) that none of my Algebra 1 students did anything.
