Catching Up With October

I just checked the date of my last blog post and all I will say is that the last time I checked in, it was still summer. My bad. That's what a new school year will do to ya. I have an awesome class this year though, they are so spongey and ready to learn, I have been able to move at a much quicker pace than I am used to. We've been in school for 31 days and I've already covered the short vowels. That's a record for me, truly.
October is a great month for picture books and there are so many good ones. Here are just a few of my favourites.
Even though October is half over, I still want to share my Smart Board Math Problems. We do one of these problems every day to get Math class started, then we work on another problem from my 200 set in our binders.  My kids love using the Board to interact and solve each one. Here are just a few.

You can have a better look at the preview here. If you'd like to win a copy, leave me a comment and I'll choose a winner tomorrow.
This month has been so busy that when it was time for my daughter's 21st birthday and I was shopping for candles for her cake, they were all out of 2's and 1's, so instead of going somewhere else to find them, I bought three 7's instead. Teach much!? Aren't we always thinking of numbers differently?
But, she loved it just the same. This cake is awesome BTW, for the recipe click here.
Have a great weekend.
