How to Teach Kids Survival Skills

I'm still here after a busy summer and I've had several people reach out to me through the blog that would like to post some information. Here is some great infographics that explain what we can do to help our kids with survival skills. Sometimes we get so bogged down with the day to day of school, it's good to remember these types of things.

Thanks for sharing it Mike!

Let me know what you think! Have you tried some of these things with your students and kids?

Math activity Thursday! With doilies and place value (since I forgot to post last time)

I just uploaded the latest math activity Thursday! Do you ever buy doilies because they look neat but then don't know what to do with them? I do! So, I have some suggestions of what you can do with those doily packs you have around your house or classroom : )

This video is about making place value system models... pretty fun stuff!

I hope everyone is having a fun summer and having fun with their kids or having an enjoyable break from the classroom : )

Let me know if you have any ideas you want to share for math activity Thursday : )

Take care,

It's National Best Friends Day! Be a friend and support a fellow educator publish a place value book for us to use! Day 3 of Trimester 1--Book Baby

Hey everyone!

It's been a busy day and so I understand with graduations going right and left if you haven't had a chance to check out the awesome project on Kickstarter... Here is your chance!

Did you know it is National Best Friends day?! I have a couple of best friends and they both live in San Antonio, Texas now : ) I got to visit them a year ago and it was a total blast! I hope you have a great day! I will be posting my Math activity Thursday a bit later, so feel free to check back!

Kickstarter Book Baby-- 1st Trimester, day 2... Here come the monkeys!

Okay, hopefully the post title made you intrigued... It is day two of my Kickstarter but I had made some interesting math connections with it.  For example, my campaign for Trouble with Monkeys: a math concept story of place value runs for 33 days in total, so I decided to to divide it up into trimesters with 11 days each. So, in order to reach the goal of $12,000 to fund the Kickstarter I will need to raise about 3.33% each day.

Unfortunately, my adorable, wonderfully educational picture book project is failing at the moment.--it's day two and we are up to 1.275% So, what needs to happen? We need to talk it up! Let's tweet, share, and support this adorable book baby! It can't be published without some love from everyone : )



Please check out the Kickstarter page, see if you want to pledge anything, but please remember that if we don't hit the goal nobody will be charged and we can't make the book since I won't have enough funds to pay the illustrator and printer. Let's make the book a reality!

Let me know if you have any ideas for me--I'd love to hear them : )

Kickstarter Launch Day for Trouble with Monkeys: A #math concept story of place value!

It's a busy day! I just launched an awesome Kickstarter for a picture book that has been in the works for years! I was able to get a little pre-press with the awesome Denise Gaskins on her blog, Let's Play Math, this past Saturday. I was SO excited to see that my Kickstarter will be running alongside GregTangMath!

If you want to see and share the campaign the link is here: http://kck.st/2sdPs6F

And if you want to share any of the tweets and images I made those can be found here!
Here is the YouTube video of my campaign!

Let's show that math literature has a place in the kids book market!
