Well hello there, friends! I know several of you didn’t have school today either because of the holiday or because of the snow. We have not had a lick of snow, ice, sleet, or anything here in North Texas this year. I’m beginning to feel left out, but thankful I don’t have to worry about too much cold weather!
We had such a great weekend celebrating Valentine’s Day as a family. Normally Jared and I would go out on our own, but we wanted to take Joelle to her first nice steak restaurant (other than Texas Roadhouse or the such). It was fun getting dressed up and talking all about acting fancy, ha!
As I was teaching it last week I was jotting down ideas that I can use for review, as stations, and for introduction lessons next year. I finally set down to put those ideas together into one resource! Here’s a little glimpse as to what is inside:
This unit is very similar to my double digit addition and subtraction units. I wanted to keep it consistent and fun! I also made a couple of mini-posters, scoots, and word problems!
I’m really hoping that I can finish my Triple Digit Subtraction unit by the end of this week… because I’m going to need it next Monday! But, at least this is done for now!

Have you ever read Fiona’s Luck? I had never seen it before this year. It’s not your typical St. Patrick’s Day/Leprechaun story. Which is one reason I LOVE it. It’s about a leprechaun king who takes all of the luck from the people in Ireland. A girl named Fiona uses her wits to get a little face-to-face with the king. You just have to read it!! #rootedinreading #specialedition bit.ly/FionasLuck ... See MoreSee Less
We’ve had a lot of hard discussions with our kids lately... especially about loving who you are and who God made you to be. Sometimes you just need a picture book to continue the discussion, so this is what we will be reading tonight: Remarkably You by Pat Zietlow Miller ❤️ Thank you to @ramonarecommends for telling me about this precious book!! #picturebooksofinstagram ...
