As a middle school teacher, there are many moments to reflect upon. This blog will be a place to reflect upon all of those moments (and more)!

Good Use of Time?
There are so many things to get done this week and next, and so when I was in my classroom, what did I do? I used duct tape to decorate my trays! These trays are pretty old, but are so sturdy that I can't part with them. I noticed that they were a bit marked up, so I thought the duct tape would make them look cleaner and neater. The pictures aren't as bright as the actual trays/tape...guess the lighting wasn't great.
So, with all the things I need to do, this probably wasn't the best use of my time, but it was fun:)
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, discussions...it 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
