Hello everyone…This has been such a crazy summer. I have been in Thinking Map training and Trade Days Training all summer. We are moving into a new math series called Investigations. Have any of you used this? I would love some thoughts on it. Next my hubby and I went on a mini vaca to Ruidoso, New Mexico. So cool and relaxing there. We went to the horse races and then to the lava beds. So much fun!!! When we got home we found out that our neighbor’s dog had chewedd through our fence and attacked one of my yorkies. She is doing better but had to stay in the hospital for a week. That cost us, or should I say my neighbor a small fortune! I am working on a new stool and teacher toolbox for my classroom. I also bought a laminator to use at home. I highly recommend that everyone get one. I went to Wal-Mart and bought the Scotch brand for 24.00. It is a bargain. I hope all of you are having a great summer and get rest…School is not too far off!!!
