Fall Freebie

Happy Fall, y'all! The weather has been gorgeous around here over the last few days, and I am just itching to get out my pumpkins and fall clothes. To celebrate my favorite season, I have a little freebie for all of you!  My kiddies just love dice and spinners, and they love these tools even more when they can work in pairs or small groups. This particular freebie focuses on addition and subtraction, and has options for 2,3, and 4 digit numbers. I will be placing a few of these in my math workshop buckets this month :)  Enjoy!

A New Look for A New Year!

Hey y'all! Hmmmm, is something different around here, or is it just me?!  I just have to say that I am so excited, so thrilled, so incredibly pumped about my new blog design!  I never thought my personality, passions, and ideas would come together in such a beautiful, perfect way. Alexis over at Laugh, Eat, Learn was such a pleasure to work with, and completely captured my visions.  Seriously, if you are looking for a new look contact Alexis immediately. She was super efficient with email, and is basically like a blog magician. Sheer perfection if you ask me!

Today is the tenth of the month so I am linking up with Rachel over at the Classroom Game Nook for Ten on Ten.  Here are ten pictures that encompass what's been going on in my life recently.

 I was trying on my first Stitch Fix shipment, and I am LOVING this cardi!  Definitely one of my favorite casual looks.

 Working on giving our classmates feedback on problem solving strategies. The purple pen is a student favorite!

This week we worked on multiplicative comparisons. My students were asked to create a scenario problem involving a multiplicative comparison, and this little gem included Peyton Manning. Bonus points anyone?!

I led a math inservice for my fourth grade teachers, and everyone brought a few treats. #stresseating #teacherswhoeattogetherstaytogether

 Our classroom feedback anchor chart.  We try to focus on meaningful feedback every day. 

My mom made me two number pillows for my reading center. Talk about a big hit! My students love seeing numbers and books in our reading nook.  Notice the number in the middle :)

Kiddos working on multiplicative comparison spinners. This activity helped my students soooo much with 4.NBT.1!

On Saturday, the hubs took these two cuties on a ride. I just love this shot!

LSU game on Saturday. I know we look happy here, but the smiles quickly faded after the game was canceled due to lightning and rain :(

This is my whole class incentive display. We LOVE sweet behavior!

Go ahead and link up with Rachael and add your own Ten on Ten!
