Just a quick 5 to share my past week. Linking with Doodle Bugs.
I have been "Rebranded!!"
We drove out Sunday afternoon and began our CAMT experience in downtown Ft. Worth! I had a blast!! I have to admit...my strength is Reading & Writing but Math is where I feel like I have to put loads of effort and try, try, try. This is the 1st year that I am so excited to approach Math. I have learned so much from this conference.
I tried to take a selfie with the banner. Not so good -- so a friend helped me out.
Since I'm in a Mathematical frame of mind...
What questions pop into your head when you see this amazing display from the Ft. Worth convention center? I bet it has something to do with math, right? Well, that is one of the most fun things I learned from one of the presenters, Dan Meyer. Math is really all around us. We have a natural, innate curiosity that can be mathematical driven. What a great way to make Math relevant and let kiddos see it in the world around them!!!
(BTW -- I don't know how many hats that is, but I'm sure there is a mathematical way to solve it)
It must be Back To School time because there are giveaways galore!! A good bloggy friend of mine has hit 200 followers and is having an awesome giveaway.
Look at that prize!! I need that one!! And on top of the $$ there are some great products for some other buddies including one of my latest products. Take a look.
Stop by A Grace Filled Classroom and enter for a chance to win.
Along my path throughout the convention center, I met & made lots of new friends. Here are a couple of my favorites.
A fellow first-timer, named Miles.
It's Miss Math Dork! And guess what? She gave me two of her cute earring sets for teachers to put into a giveaway. Be on the lookout for that opportunity in the future. I have to put some great products together to go along with it.
It was so much fun meeting so many people and just getting back in the school mode.
Then it was back to graduate school mode. As soon as I was home I had a day to get my display board ready for our end of class, Literacy Symposium. I think it came out great! But, now I need a nap.
And that's my 5 for this week. Now that we are getting into August, I'm sure I'll have more of a variety soon!
