I am not dead

I have been wondering now for about 3 weeks how I would renter into the world of blogging. Perhaps just by telling you my story.

November 6th happened.

I was admitted to the hospital with an aggravated lower intestine. It seams as though 1 inch of it had deteriorated so badly that they had to remove it.

Hospital stay #1.

It was a pretty quick procedure I was back to work by the 10th.

November 12.

Complications with the "G-Tube". I was not getting enough nutrients and was severely dehydrated

Hospital stay #2
Relatively short stay took off work till after Thanksgiving.

December 2.
Pancreas attack. Hospital again, this time was put in short term diss-ability till after Xmas.

Finally I am healthy and have been in my classroom for a total of 6 weeks. Minus "cold days".

The entire time I was gone there was no long term sub so I was still teaching, creating worksheets, and videos, and flip-ables but from the comfort of my own home, and pjs.

I have loads to share with you.

Slant boxes will return in March for those of you interested.



  1. What a rough few months you have had! I'm so glad to hear you are on the mend. Take care.

Creating Ratio Posters

This was a really fun project that I did with my 7th graders when we were working on ratios, Rates and proportions that I never got a chance to post this past year, and I will not be teaching 7th grade again! (sort of sad...but not really.)
To introduce the topic we started with a review of ratios.  Below you will find the worksheet that went along with the project.  You can see this student was using her worksheet to help her think of a topic idea!!  LOVE!

She also was not very careful with her worksheet.  Sorry for the wrinkles.  As you can see the students had to pick a topic, draw or represent (i told them they could use stickers or glue objects to their poster) 20 objects, then on a second sheet of paper complete 10 questions relating to ratios from their poster and reflect.  Here is what this student came up with!

Back To School First Day Activity Idea

Hi there!  I have been slacking on the blogging lately.  When summer started I was upset that I was not going to be teaching summer school, and that I had to drop out of Grad School for a while (Due to some REALLY ridiculous issues at a different school not allowing my transcripts to get set over...Long story really.), but I have actually been INCREDIBLY busy this whole summer. 

I wanted to do a quick share for an activity that you can do on the first day of school and how I used it last year! (I wish I had pictures!!! That is going to be one of my goals this upcoming school year is to take more pictures in my room, of my products.  I think it is actually going to become a classroom job!!!)
So here it is I posted this last year about this time but it works so well.  I have it as a freebie in my TPT store. You can click the picture or HERE to download.  
This is what I did last year and will do again this year on the first day of school.  I took pictures of all of my students on the fi…
