So Many Things!

I have so many things I want to share this evening!!!!

Today and yesterday my district had SNOW DAYS!  Yesterday I got to spend the whole day at home with my precious baby and my sick husband.  He is feeling much better today but had 'the crud' the entire week.

Today I woke up and realized that we have parent/teacher conferences on Monday and Tuesday night and that I was completely unprepared because of missing school!  I met up with some of my coworkers and we had lunch and then went to school to get stuff ready.  I'm hoping that we actually get to have conferences since we are expected to get more snow Monday/Tuesday!

I created a new product on TpT that I am super proud of!  It is a set of Task/Scoot cards that allows students to practice naming fractions, decimals and mixed numbers on a number line!  It asks students to find which letter best represents a given fraction, decimal or mixed number, as well as fill in the missing number, write a number that is less than a given fraction, decimal or mixed number, and MUCH MORE!  I am really excited to use it in my room!  If we wouldn't have had two snow days this week I already would've!  Check it out HERE!!!!!

On another note, I have found this AMAZING app called OverDrive!

It is an app in which you can add your public library to your account and E-Rent books from there for FREE!  All you have to do is create an Adobe ID and have a library card.  I have put it on my classroom set of iPads and so far my two students who have library cards love it!  I am super sad that only two of my students have public library cards.  I am going to get library card applications soon to send home with my students to hopefully encourage their parents to get them one!

The book I read this week on OverDrive is called Gone Girl, by Jillian Flynn.  It was an incredible read, I couldn't put it down.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, until the end! I cannot believe how it ended.  Blah.  I highly recommend it if you like crime/thriller/plot-twisty/adult novels!   Check it out! After I read The Confession by John Grisham, I am going to read another one of her novels!  Can't wait!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
