A New Blog

Hello everyone, I want to share with you all my new blog I have going.  I applied for a grant, that I received, that gave my classroom 20 iPads for a 1:1 initiative.  OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!  It is so awesome and has changed learning in my room.  I have been hugged so much these past several days more than I have all year!  I'm constantly hearing the kids say how much fun they are having and the best part is they are LEARNING!  They are engaged and their understanding of not only the concepts I'm teaching but their knowledge and use of technology has also grown.  Most, but not all, of these kids have used an iPad before but I'm not really using them in the same way as they are used to.  I love that this is leveling the playing field for the kids that do not have access to technology at home.  So, if you are interested, follow along on our iPad journey at

Ways To Make 7, 8, 9 and 10

Here's a review game.  I didn't put the directions but it's very simple.  Students pick a flower and solve the math equation and then place it over/around the correct flower pot.  When they are finished they can write all of the ways (equations) to make the numbers in order.  If I have time I will make recording sheets for these.

It's snowing here in Virginia, yhea!!!!!!....snow day!( first one all year), so I have time to post a game I made and maybe make another. The rules on how to play it are long and sort of complex, so if you have questions, just ask me.  I had my kids play it and they loved it!!!  So, enjoy and yahoo for snow.
