Marvelous March

This March has been a spectacular one for me.  I was named Manatee County Educator of the Year, received Congressional Teacher Award from Congressman Vern Buchanan, and among other things was in several newspapers and on the news.  It feels surreal.  I mean as teachers we do what we do for the kids. NEVER did I think that I would be honored in this way.

One of the prizes was a trip spend the weekend in Pittsburgh to see 3 Pirates games (can you believe it?!).  The Pirates sent me a schedule to choose from and it got me thinking about our next math unit in which we will explore representing and interpreting data.

I made up some activities that use baseball schedules. I think the boys in my class will LOVE it!  I'm here to share it with you...and of course it is a FREEBIE!!

I want to acknowledge the hard work that EVERY teacher does daily.  It is an all-consuming career and every teacher deserves a pat on the back for going above and beyond.  Also, I am so thankful for the many bloggers out there that have made my job easier by sharing ideas, lessons, activities and creations.  I think every teacher that taught before Pinterest knows what an asset bloggers are!
