Are You a ROBOT?
I am according to the comment section on some blogs.
As I was hopping along on a great little blog hop this morning, I went to leave messages in the comment section thanking all the great bloggers for sharing. I know it was early and I am getting old, or my eyesight is going, but twice I was told I was a robot and had to re-enter the correct numbers and letters.
Do you know what I am talking about?
So here is how you get rid of it
so everyone will love to leave you comments.
All bloggers love comments especially Teacher bloggers!

I am definitely not a very techy person, but this was easy to do.
Those little boxes have been bothering me and now maybe I helped get rid of a pesky few!
It’s 3-D Shape time in Math! Ya Hoo!! My class loves the change from addition and subtraction facts. Does your math series seem to have addition and subtraction facts forever? I know it is an important skill in first grade, but I find the need to supplement the book with other concepts during those units. Otherwise, I feel like we are doing the same thing for too long and it can become boring. I do skip around and pull in other chapters to keep concepts fresh in students minds all year long, not just for the few weeks they are covered in the book. Money, Telling Time, Geometry, and Graphing are some of the concepts I try to integrate in all units. I had used a spiraling curriculum at my past school and now realize that I really liked it. So I spiral, review, reintroduce, whatever you want to call it, in order to keep math concepts fresh.
Here is a cute video to introduce your 3-D Shapes.
If you have never used Harry Kindergarten’s YouTube videos, you are in for a treat. BEWARE….some of his catchy little tunes and raps will linger in your mind for days, weeks, even months. This is great for kindergarten or first grade.
If you need some posters of 3-D Shapes for your Math Center, here are some FREE to download. There are 6 shapes; cone, cylinder, cube, rectangular prism, pyramid, and sphere. I had trouble with the background showing up in google docs so you will have to grab it at my TPT store for free.

Happy St. Pat’s Day! I created an Even or Odd Math Center game for my students. Most of my kids get the hang of even and odd, but they love trying the the “bigger” numbers. So in this game I included numbers 1-9999. It is just a fun little center with cute DJ Inkers graphics. Love their stuff!
We’re up and running. Slowly but surely, my new blog is taking shape. In the next few weeks, I hope to add lots of pictures, ideas, and freebies for all of my blogging buddies to use. As I learn to navigate around my new site, I will be adding content that gives you a peek inside my classroom. You will see that I love to take pictures. It is so much easier to snap a picture of a project, than try to explain it in detail. I am a visual person and when I see cute pictures from other classrooms, I am more likely to use those ideas within my classroom. I have been so inspired by many talented teachers around the world through blogs and Pinterest. There are so many great ideas at your fingertips. Check out my Pinterest boards from the link at the top of this blog and you will find some amazing pictures of ideas, crafts, and tips that I collected. I hope you continue to check back daily to share in the happenings in my classroom. You will surely find an idea or two to use in your classroom.
Thanks for visiting!
