Monday Made It- June 29th

It's Monday again and time for Monday Made It
(okay, so its Tuesday now, but still posting....)
Last week was LONG, but in a super good way. All my hard work from last week's MMI, paid off and CAMT 2015 was a success. Read about that experience here

CAMT truly motivated me to get some stuff completed that I had just sitting on my computer. 

I finished my first 3rd grade product

I also finished my 8th grade Personal Financial Literacy Flippables that has been sitting on my computer for a few months. Texas teachers are "hungry" for this stuff. Of course, now I need to get 7th done so I have 6th-8th and then oh yea, 3rd grade for my own students this year!!! I'll just add that to the list as well. 

I "made" a twitter account last night. I am clueless to how to use it, but I will learn. If your around there, follow me @HodgesHerald and I will follow you back. 

And lastly, I had to make something for my classroom. I started making this last week, and finished today. I really want to instill some deep number sense with  my students this next year. I plan to use this not only as an early finishers board, but also as a station in my room during some weeks. I guess time will tell how it plays out. I love the brightness and it will fit with my room perfectly! 

This will be posted in a pocket chart, but for summer, it is packed away.

Until next week....

  4. Hi! I found you through Monday Made It and I'm so glad I did. Woohoo Texas Teachers! Love your financial literary bundle you made. I made something similar for my 4th graders this year. I downloaded my free copy of your number of the day bulletin board. That is seriously awesome and so easy to use. Thanks a million for sharing. I'm your newest follower. :)

  5. So I saw this post on Tara's MMI for today, and loved it! So I had to come and check it out. Went to to download it, and THEN I SAW MY GLITTER FRAME! :D You just made my day x2 with a great freebie for me to use in my classroom and using my frame! :)

    1. I clicked on it and it does. Plus, you are a no reply email. If you send me an email separately at hodgesgal@gmail.com, I can if it still doesn't work for you, let me know.


  11. Elizabeth, I absolutely love this math activity! Do you have a template that you use for kids to write their responses or do you just have them write in a notebook? Thank you! K_yoell@hotmail.com

  12. Sorry, I just saw the answer document. Thank you again for the freebie!
