"Over spring break, I..."

Happy weekend!  
As most spring breaks are either over or coming to an end, I thought I'd share what I spent my time doing:

My friends and I took advantage of the quick and easy (yet crowded) 30 minute metro ride to DC.  It was a beautiful sunny day to be a tourist and visit the memorials and monuments!

I am CHEVRON - OBSESSED.  I recently had my bathroom painted this bright teal color and we had a lot of extra paint left over.  This shelf had been sitting in our garage collecting dust for quite some time, and I figured it could really be put to some good use.  With a little paint and DIY pin-spiration, now have the cutest shelf to organize and hold (some of) my shoes!


I Have, Who Has?  Surprisingly, I've never heard of this game before I saw recent Pinterest posts, but I absolutely love the idea and so I was inspired to create this western-themed version of the game.  Motivate your class to become fluent in their multiplication facts by timing them and seeing how fast they can get from the first to last card!  

If you'd like to enter to win this game among many other teaching resources, stop by these awesome blogs and check out their giveaways:  



Congrats to these bloggers/teachers/creators!  What great inspiration!  :) 

I hope everyone enjoyed their well deserved breaks just as much as I did!
