About Me

I am Iowa Hawkeye and proud of it! :0) I began teaching in first grade, was moved to fifth grade (the day before school...what a year!), then moved back to be with my firsties! I'm a married, mother of one to a very curious and adventurous little boy and three fur babies! :0)

Overwhelmed and soooo excited!

Well... The AEA came through and I was able to grab the newest book from Debbie Diller, Math Work Stations! I've gotten through one chapter and I couldn't help but take a look ahead at some of the pictures, and all I can say is... I AM SO EXCITED TO IMPLEMENT THIS NEXT YEAR!!! I have also linked up to a, "blog party" and OH BOY, OH BOY, there are some amazing teachers out there who have taken the time to add some amazing FREE downloads that go along with the book. I will be catching up with the blog party and will be uploading some of my thoughts about the book, but for now I better stop blogging and get back to reading! :0)
A few things I will be thinking about as I read....
1) How will this look in a CGI (Cognitive Guided Instruction) classroom?
2) How can I include my title resource teacher in on this new and exciting adventure?
3) What will I need to prepare this summer in order to become the "organizational wiz" I've always dreamed of becoming...and every year fall short of?
4) Why am I up so late on a summer night...what should I grab out of the fridge... OH WAIT! That's not about the book hehehe :0)
And they say teachers have their summers off BHAHAHAH!!!!

  1. Thanks for linking up to me and reading this book. I think you will find millions of ways to use it in your room. I can't wait to find out what you think about it. Why have I not seen this blog? I am on it now and will check it often. I hope to hear from you!
