    Fraction Nation King
     
    Raymontre Palmer, a 6th grader in Mr. Gilbreath's class at O.W. Dillon, is the unofficial "King of Fraction Nation." He started the software program on January 17th at lesson 1 and completely finished up this week. Raymontre worked in the computer lab every spare moment to work on Fraction Nation, including before school. As you can see on the Fraction Nation chart, he is WAY past the rest of the 4th, 5th and 6th graders at O.W. Dillon! Congratulations to Raymontre for mastering all of the skills in Fraction Nation.
