New year....

Hi Everyone!

It has been forever since I have blogged.  I have been reflecting on my December, and the many changes that are heading my way and I wanted to let you in on a little update.

I will be changing a few things around here.  Nothing Huge but yes...change.

First.  I got moved (yes mid year) from 6t grade to 8th grade.  Friday December 19th was the last day with my 6th graders, the last day in room 2608, and the last day on team Indianna.  Starting tomorrow, I will be the third 8th grade algebra teacher.  I have new students (and more of them), a new classroom (a little bit bigger but still tiny), a new team (I am actually on both team Minnesota and team Wisconsin), new curriculum, and finally, new stress levels.


I GOT ENGAGED YALL!  So I have been spending time planning that.  While it is very exciting it is also very stressful. 

So here is what you might see change around here:

-I need to take at least a month off from SLANT (I still have like three boxes I need to send out...UGH  Sorry ladies...they are sitting here...I just have to get to the dang post!).  I will be returning in February or March with a new twist.  From now on you will only be paired with one teacher.  I have WAY too many flakers.  I think by matching you up with one person you can better get to know them, and I do not have to worry so much about the flakes.  I will also be doing a google form to report flakers.  

-I will be bringing my blog over to WP and be compltely self hosted.  Please update your bloglovin to and you will be in the loop for the transition.

-You might start seeing a lot more "lifestyle" posts.  I have something called a Class Pass ( and have been asked to document my classes and what not.  

-On the blogging note.  I really want to focus on my TPT store.  I have teamed up with some pretty rockstar (I am really star struck) secondary sellers, together we are going to do some hops, and help promote.  I am going to try to get one product out a week. That being said, some of it will be 8th grade, some will be 6th grade and some will be 7th grade.

Other than that I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season.

Here is to 2015!

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!

If you have had any questions about using art or projects in a math class here it is, Directly from the mouth (er, hand) of a student.  STUDENTS LOVE VISUAL PROJECTS …

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…
