I have accepted a new job!!!!! EEEEK! I am currently teaching second grade, which I love, but I will be teaching fourth grade at a fabulous school when I move to Atlanta. I don't have a ton of experience with the bigger kids, so I am open to any advice that you have for me! Word on the street is that fourth grades are still sweet and still love school. I sure hope that is true!
Please leave a comment below if you are a fourth grade teacher blogger so I can
stalk follow your blog and Instagram!

I started teaching fractions this week which is fun because I LOVE teaching fractions! There are so many fun things to do to practice fractions! Most importantly, I love talking about food for our entire math block.
My kids are especially loving playing the "Buggy for Fractions" game by Chrissie Rissmiller.
Yesterday, the kids made gumball machines to prove they know their stuff.
These will make for a bright and cheery last bulletin board!

I do realize that Earth Day was a month ago, but I haven't yet shared my latest bulletin board! I somehow stumbled upon Art With Jenny K's Earth Day agamograph art activity and knew that I had to buy it. First of all, I have never heard of agamographs and though that was the coolest thing ever. Second, I knew my kids would love it. Last, I knew it'd make a great bulletin board, which is oh so important, right? All of her stuff is incredible. I want it all!!! #gimme

My very sweet grandmother mailed me presidential dollar coins to give to my students. She wrote me a funny letter about how it would make a good history lesson. Be still, my heart! The kids loved their golden dollars, which they promised not to spend, and we spent a long time researching John Adams and the United States mint.

The countdown is on, y'all!! As of this morning, I have 14 days left. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can! I hung this countdown in my classroom, but I think it's more for me than my students.
Have a great long weekend, or - if you are one of the lucky ones - have a great start to summer!
