What a GREAT Monday I had!!!
It didn't even feel like a Monday. (BIG smile)
Everything went smooth and exactly as it should. How shocking is that??
Perhaps part of it had to do with the wonderful news I was FINALLY able to share with everyone...
Yep! I'm going to be a Grammy (or a Meme, or a Mimzi...haven't figured that one out yet, but I know that it can't sound OLD!!!!)
It's hard to tell because of the glare on the picture, but the very bottom says
EXPECTING JUNE 2013.
We are VERY excited!!!
It was a BEAUTIFUL autumn day here today, the kiddos were great, all my lesson plans executed exactly as planned, AND....
You'll never GUESS what else happened.
No, that's not it!
That's not it either!!!
I got BOO'D!!!
Look at that goody basket...an apple with caramel dip, homemade white chocolate skeleton hands,
M & M's, Snickers, and Halloween pencils in this adorable basket.
I'm sure my class thought I was looney when I began laughing. I couldn't help it!
After all, I started the virtual version of BOO on Friday and it has been a huge success.

Well, now, if you don't mind hanging in there for just a little longer, I have a freebie to share with you.
First, let me explain how a fellow teacher taught it to me.
It's called BRAIN Math.
Have the students use dry/erase boards and number 1-10.
Show the Power Point. Decide on a time limit. (I started at 10 seconds for each slide.)
The students write ONLY the answer next to the number.
(Be sure you say the number as you change slides.)
At the end, have the students put away their dry erase markers.
Go back over the slides and tell the answers. The students will erase any wrong answers, but do not change any answers (hence the putting the markers away).
This will help your students practice math fluency facts in a fun and different way.
I hope you enjoy! (Just click on above picture to download your own free copy.)
It's very simple to make your own Power Point for addition, subtraction, or a mix.

Now, I'm off to go start looking at grandmother names (maybe I should do a poll!) haha
I would love to hear your suggestions!
