Thanks for visiting me.  I'm so excited about starting my first blog!  After 15 years of teaching, monotony can often set in and it makes returning to work a little difficult.  I like to fight that  feeling by adding something new to my repertoire.  Thankfully, my sister turned me on to Pinterest.  I absolutely love it!  I've gotten so many wonderful ideas for everything from fashion to cooking.  Lately, I've been looking for ideas for my math learning centers.  I came across one particular pin called "BUILDing the math workshop".  It took each letter in the word build to represent a station.  B= Buddy Games, U=Using Manipulatives, I=Independent Reading/Working, L=Learning About Numbers, and D=Doing Math.  It was similar in thought to the Daily 5 CAFE for reading group activities.  I'm modifying the concept somewhat for my students.  I'm going to test drive it for a couple weeks and then I look forward to posting my results.

Here's to the start of a wonderful school year! ;)
