MARCH SLANTbox Exchange Reveal Linky

It is that time of the month!  Hopefully you have sent out your SLANTboxes or are in the process of sending them out!

So since I did not participate this month I have nothing to reveal which makes me a little sad...but you know...I sort of needed to get my life in gear before I start tying to do everything again!  I am thinking about doing April because I LOVE LOVE LOVE the theme....However I do not want to be a flake....agian.  :(

So here are the rules,  I am borrrowing a bit from FARLEY at Oh Boy 4th Grade and how she does her link for her fabulous Currently posts!  (PS. Can not wait for April!)

Here are the rules...
1) You must link up directly to your reveal post.  If you do not have a blog, link to your Instagram or FB post that you posted.  Please make this be the specific post and not just to your main page.  I want it so that if someone clicks on your beautiful face, they see your awesome SLANTbox.  I too, like Farley, had some trouble in the past of people sending links to their TPT stores.  I am not trying to get ugly here....but SLANTboxes is about collaboration, meeting people, and sharing....not advertisement. 

2) Please click the link to 2-4 other blogs and leave a heartfelt comment about their SLANTbox.  Some of us are "well known" bloggers, others are just getting their feet wet.  Spread the love.  For a small blog, having the like of someone "blog-famous" is a big deal.  You honestly never know who your biggest fans are!

3) Finally, come back in a day or two and leave one more comment.  Grab someone that has posted AFTER you!

That is it!  I can not wait to see the SLANTboxes back in action!  I have already started to see them pop up on Instagram!!!

Multiplication is for White People Chapter 1

Part One: Inherent Ability 1. There Is No Achievement Gap At Birth One of the things I find myself constantly arguing is the fact that I am a white teacher in a not so white school.  I think I have heard (from the mouths of white people) “do you ever fear for your life?” more times than I would like to admit.  No I do not fear for my life.  I know where this is stemming from, the idea that black teenagers are somehow “more dangerous” than white teenagers.  Most of the time these types of comments are from folks who I believe to not be RACIST but, let's face it, they are pretty prejudice.  And there is a HUGE difference. (By the way…statistically speaking, look at school shootings and the demographics of the shooters.  Seems to me most of them are white, and in white neighborhoods.  I’m just saying.) In the first chapter of Lisa Delpit’s book “Multiplication is for White People," (MIFWP)  Delpit reminds us that children are not born with deficits in le

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 st

Fractions decimals and percents

HI! I am actually Blogging!  That is crazy. We are getting prepared for a huge sale on TPT and So I thought I would let you know a little more in detail about one of my newest products. My students LOVED this activity.  I went to the store and bought "Fun Sized" bags of a very popular brand name candy coated chocolate candy. (If you look at the pictures you can probably figure out what it is :))  I also bought a bag of the "Mini" version of this particular candy!  Then I snagged a box of Dixie cups.  The idea of this activity is that students are to find the fraction/decimal/percent of each color in the bag of "Fun Sized" and the fraction/decimal/percent of the "Mini" versions. THEN.  Here is the kicker...they are to compare them to one another!  OH ingenious.  Many of my students were really confused on comparing .25 to 1/4.  Having the visuals of the candies helped them to grasp this concept!!!  Score!
