Happy New Year!

Out with the old – in with the new!  As a huge thank you for all of my amazing followers, I’m throwing a New Year Celebration sale!  20% off!!  What better way to start off the “new” year than buying new activities to use in your math classroom! New Year’s day only!

This just in! TeachingIsAGift is having a linky party and we joined up!  Tons of fabulous New Year’s resolutions and activities!  Make sure to stop in to see what it’s all about!


~*~*~*~*~Now for something completely different~*~*~*~*~
So, I’ve seen a ton of people doing the “currently” boards and I thought I’d join in on the fun… new year, new activities!  So, I’m joining Farley at Oh’ Boy 4th grade and linking up with her monthly Currently-Party!  

I’m pretty excited to be branching out and joining new parties!  A HUGE welcome to anyone who joins in on the linky party and stops in today 🙂  Hope to see you again!  Happy, happy new year to each of you!

  1. @Jana, Last year my resolution was to be thankful 365 days. I made a personal blog and posted each day about one thing that I was thankful for that day (no matter how bad the day was). I can’t believe I did it all 366 (leap year!) days! I decided to keep it going for another 365- it was so great to keep me positive!

    • Hey Heather, it was nothing a little sparkly couldn’t fix! I’m thinking about making another version of my frosty relay using decimal operations for my 5th/6th grade resource kiddos.

      Happy New Year to you as well!

  2. I found your blog through Farley’s Linky Party and I’m so glad I did. I can’t believe I haven’t stumbled upon it until now. Even though I am an elementary special educator, I love branching out and finding blogs from other parts of the teaching profession.

    I am your newest follower 🙂

    Cheers and Happy New Year!


    • Welcome! I am a math specialist at my school and work 1/2 day with teachers and 1/2 day with the lowest kiddos. Most of my kiddos are 2-4 grade levels below in math so you just might find some activities that will work for them! If not, if you see something you want modified for your kiddos just let me know and I’ll see what I can come up with!

      Happy New Year!

    • Thanks so much for the opportunity! I fell in love with your blog yesterday. I read your side profile and just kept thinking how much fun you were and how much I was going to love reading your blog! <3

  3. I ADORE your profile picture. I have a picture of my cat on my blog….he is my blog helper. =)

    The name of your blog is great and I am so sorry that you have a headache. =(

    Maybe you could have your kiddos solve math problems to reveal a mystery message.

    I am happy to be your newest follower. I would love for you to hop over and visit when you get the chance. =)

    • My Dozer is the best! He just turned one on 12/12 (yes even my pets have to be mathematical!) and he is an absolute hoot! I think I may need to add a pic of him on here somewhere! He is all over my personal blog but no one sees that except for me… hmmm….that needs to change!

  4. Your blog is adorable!! So your blog is making me remember…I used geometry – isosceles triangles to be exact to figure out how many Christmas light I would need on our roof. lol I felt like a dork and loved it.

    I’m a new follower of yours and would love it if you stopped by and checked out my blog to see if it would be something you would like to follow too!

    • Brie! I love your site! I am also your newest follower! The weekend report is so cute!

      I also love your Christmas light story! I will share it tomorrow when my kiddos try to relate to me how they used math over their break 🙂
