Math Book...Found, not Lost

So there I was, cleaning and sorting, and I found this book.
 Really, I forgot that I owned it. It is written to explain the meaning of the plus sign, and it is a little too difficult for Kindergarten, but it is really super simple on the first few pages. I would suggest it if you are doing quite a bit of addition in your class. It uses other "adding" words "plus" and "and". Super smart.

When I went to Amazon to find the picture, I remembered that I also own the subtraction book too("If you Were a Subtraction Sign") and I saw that the author has some "fractured fairy tales" that I will have to check out. One is "Seriously, Cinderella is So Annoying"(As told by the Step-Mother). So funny!

Throwback Thursday!

This week I want to highlight another post from long ago...

...But first, pop over to for a giveaway today!

 Fall Bulletin Board!  I love the use of sight words on this idea. I change the sentence almost every year now. 

I love to make these every year! We are always doing something different with them. This year we added a "spelling" word on our sentence strip.

Summer Linky Party: Calendar in the Classroom

My favorite part of the calendar is something I added this year.  I used 7 library pockets, in  a row, with school written on the first five, and home written on the last two(with pictures). Then everyday, we move a stick to the next pocket to show the day. We use sticky notes to label upcoming special days, like assemblies, or a birthday. 

I read that this is easier for the kids to understand, especially at the beginning of the year.
