Top 5 Blog Posts of 2014 - Linky Party

Time for another reflection for 2014 

It blows my mind that anyone reads this blog at all, but it blows my mind even more to see how often people check out what I have been doing. I am so glad. I am glad people can benefit from what I have done, especially the mistakes and the great finds I get from my own blog reading. 

Here's my Top 5 

I loved looking back at these posts and looking at the others as well.

Top 10 Insta Pics of 2014 - Linky Party Fun

I have been up since 5am with a cold trying to become more. 
Going to stay upbeat though and have some fun today with teacherytidbits

I really enjoyed looking back at all the photos for  the year. 

Loved meeting two of my favorite bloggers at CAMT this summer.

Celebrating our first date, 10 years ago at the exact spot!!! 

This was my Spanish 1 teacher in high school, a long time ago I might add. He now works at my school. He was quick to point out that I was his student in his first or second year of teaching. 
He looks great!!! He coached for 30 years, retired and is now teaching Spanish again! 

Love these earrings by Miss Math Dork!

This is one of my favorite shirts and apparently liked by my followers too! 

Jamberry was a favorite as well. 

Happy this made it as a favorite! 
 A student from 2 years ago wrote me this wonderful thank you note a few weeks ago. 
Filled my heart! 

My favorite football player!!! Playing Kinect in full pads and helmet due to rain outside. 

My wedding anniversary fun! (In my favorite shirt) 

Love that she made #1. 
Again, in my favorite shirt! 
I use her for everything.
 Even had a skin made for my iphone 6 Plus!!! 

I have to admit though, My favorite picture of last year is below!!! 
The day my son got accepted to Texas A&M for next Fall!!! 

Be sure to check out the fun at Teachery Tidbits and if you don't follow me already, check out hodgesgal23 on instagram!

Holiday Break

Christmas break has been great! It is productive and not moving too quickly. I have been working and playing. My boys have kept me busy with doctor appointments too. 

My youngest had a well check that turned into a sick appt when he needed a breathing treatment for wheezing and low oxygen. You couldn't tell by looking at him though. He is a firecracker even when he is sick. 

We have another checkup in San Antonio today for my middle. This is a weekly event for us; nice  not to have to take off work for this one though. 

I've been creating new products and updating a few old ones as well. Feels good to be productive! 

What I haven't done is finish my Christmas shopping. If you follow me, you know I am a procrastinator!!! I feel the panic now though. It HAS to be done TODAY!!! 

Before that though, want to make sure you visit the last iHeart Holiday stop. It's been 23 days of fantastic blogs! Hope you didn't miss anything. Maybe you can spend some time this break catching up if you did. Remember each day will take you to that stop!

I found a fun linky for the New Year as well. We are starting Daily 3 math in January so I don't have a new year idea to share, but found a perfect activity to use. Be sure to check it out!

Monday Made It on a Saturday!

The second Monday of the month means Monday Made it with Tara. Thankfully its open all month, cuz I am never on time anymore. And, thankfully, you don't have to wait until Monday to link up, because it's actually Saturday right now. 

I shared these last week, but am sharing again because I updated them.
We are starting Daily 3 Math here in January, but I have also noticed that many are doing Daily 5 Math. This will probably work for my two strategies classes too. 
I made these super cute signs and want to share them with you. 

I love how they turned out. 
Hope you can use them
(they are FREE)

I also made another secret message activity. My students enjoyed our holiday one so I made one for them to practice multiplying and dividing decimals. 

Plus, I got to use Lucy Doris from Melonheadz. Isn't she the cutest?!!! 

And don't forget the iHeart Holiday Hop going on! This is HUGE!!!! 23 days of FREEBIES!!! It's almost complete now!!! 
A lot of bloggers have been "making this" worth your while! 
Remember, you can click on each date that has already passed.
