Kim Sutton Math Conference

I am so excited about this (very early) conference! I used Kim Sutton materials and CDs last year and my kids loved it!!! I can't wait to learn more and use her resources more, to support my kiddo's number sense! 
And the conference baggie looks like this...

What I Did on My Summer Vacation...

Summer seems to fly by so fast! I hope my kiddos from last year are enjoying their break - and I hope they are reading for fun and practicing real life math! I'm having a blast -but teachers seem to never stop working. I cannot wait to meet all of my new Darling Dolphins in a couple weeks and I am busy prepping and planning for a great year!

Summer's not over yet though and I figured I'd post some pictures showing what I've been up to so far.

First, right after school got out, Mr. Dixon and I finally went on our honeymoon! Cuba was amazing! Such a beautiful country with a rich history! I even brought back some fun things to use in the classroom!

After coming back from Cuba, Ms. DeLeon and I spent some days on the farm to learn about agriculture and fun ways to teach our kids about nutrition and food - and about saving water - eeeek! We even got to drive 4 kinds of tractors!

Then, I started thinking about all of the things we'll learn this year so I organized all of my files and projects to make it easier to remember all of the fun things we can do while we learn all those fantastic things we'll be learning.

Wow! I've been busy!

Next week I'm going to a math conference to learn some fun new ways to teach number sense! I can't wait to meet Kim Sutton at the Los Angeles conference and I love a conference that has a supply list like this...

The week after that, I'll be setting up my classroom and things are going to look a little different this year - I cannot wait for this! Pics on that to come soon!
