I'm Back!

Did you miss me?  For those of you who didn't know, I took last week off to go on a five day vacation to Puerto Vallarta!  I got some much needed R&R and back to work tomorrow I go!  My student teacher is finishing up her last week and report cards are due soon and a bunch new units are starting up so I will be busy busy busy!

I hope you enjoyed the posts I had preset to go "live" while I was gone--our work with rectangles, area, and perimeter was fascinating to watch...I am always so intrigued by the misconceptions our students have.  We'll see how the next few days go as we try to derive formulas to help us out!

To say "thanks" for stopping by even while I was gone, I thought I'd offer up a special deal on two of my favorite products--and to let you know that "Set 3" is in the works!  These two are on sale for the next 24 hours or so if you are interested.

Also, I just thought I'd let you know that this week I have a "Math Is Real Life" post coming up on Wednesday and at least a few other posts coming up about some recent classroom activities.  Have a great week and see you soon!


  1. I am so jealous of your vacation to warmer weather! It must have been difficult coming back. I'm looking forward to reading your posts about math later this week.
