I’ve had a very rough week, so I’m going to make this short and sweet.
We are working on addition in our Math in Focus textbooks right now…and I am happy to report it’s going very well this year! Don’t you love when this happens?!
The manager of Walmart came to a staff meeting this week. He raffled off nine $50 gift cards to teachers! Then, as if that wasn’t enough, he asked us if we needed anything at all. I spoke up and asked for pumpkins. I’ve never done pumpkin math with my class, but I’ve always wanted to! The most exciting part about this, is that the very next morning we had 20 pumpkins delivered to our office for us to choose from! Seriously?! This makes up for all of those Walmart trips I felt like crying after I left (tax exempt purchases on a brand new cashier, grumbling customers behind you when you have 200 notebooks, etc… you know what I’m talking about, right?). Yay for Walmart! Now, someone point me in the right direction with pumpkin activities, will you?
