Happy to Know...

How can so much time go by between my posts?! I think of so many things to write about, but get caught up getting other things done, and never write about what I'm thinking:(

Anyway, just a quick post to share what I'm "happy to know." 

The other week, my husband and his friend were eating at a diner, and his friend starting talking to a family he knew that was also eating at the diner. After a bit of conversation, our last name came up, and the "girl" (woman, really....she's almost 30) in the family realized who my husband was. This girl had been in my 5th grade class during my third year of teaching, 18 years ago! A few years later she babysat our children, but as the years went by, I didn't see her any more. It turns out that she is now a teacher, and she told my husband that I am one of the reasons that she wanted to become a teacher!  I'm so happy to know that I had a positive influence on her:-)

Love to Doodle (and a freedbie)

Exponents Color by Number For most of my school life as a student (and even as an adult, during PD), I have really liked doodling! During lectures, would help me focus, but also give me something to make me look busy, so I wouldn't get called on in class! I always hated being called on and almost never participated voluntarily:) I liked to draw cubes, rectangles, squiggly lines, etc, and color in different parts of the doodles. Download this freebie:-) I really wanted to make some color by number activities. Since I am not good at creating actual pictures, I decided to make my color by numbers similar to my random drawing/doodling. My Exponent Color by Number is most similar to my past doodles, but I thought it was a little too random, so I started using actual shapes. The Integer Operations Color by Number (freebie), as well as most of my other color by numbers are more structured, but so much fun for me to make! Computerized doodling! Anyone else
