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:

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!

It's Thursday! Time for Math activity Thursday with shoes!

Have you ever used objects around your house to enhance teaching math? Why not try using shoes!

I'd love to know what other objects you use around your house when you are playing with math!

I can't believe it is June already! I'm super excited that in only five days I launch my fundraising campaign for Trouble with Monkeys: A math concept story of place value! I hope you'll join me : )
 I hope everyone is having fun with their end of the school year celebrations! Til next time : )

New M.a.Th. with Toy Cars & Sneak Peek at Trouble with Monkeys!


I was so excited to see this short and sweet video completed. My son and I had a fun time with our toy cars and you can too : )

What kind of hands-on math activities are you doing with your kids? Have you ever used toy cars in your classroom?

Also, I'm super excited to give you a sneak peek into my upcoming project! On June 6th my Kickstarter campaign goes live! If you want to look at it here is the link to the planned campaign! It will only run through July 8th (Math 2.0 Day) and the more eyes and backers I have on it at the beginning will be great!

Have a wonderful day!
