October Currently and a math freebie!

As I was driving up to school today...bright and early at 7am (dang those 7:30am PLC meetings)...I saw this...
How beautiful is that??? And if you look close, it's a double rainbow! When I parked my car and looked at the school it was exactly starting on one side and ending on the other! I couldn't get a picture of it because I was too close! With a double rainbow going over our school, I just knew today had to be a good day! And it was! 

But what I can't believe is that it's October already! YIKES! I have a very short week next week with an all day PLC planning and a field trip. Then it's also my husbands birthday month. Before I know it, it will be November and that is a very crazy month for me!

So since it is October I need to link up with Farley for sure! I love love love linking up! I need to remember the rule of 3! I might not get to it tonight, but it will be done!

Now, I really don't have a specific book I like to read this month. I think I need to pick some up after reading all the currentlys! But one I remember as a kid and boys still love them are the Scary Stories to tell in the dark! They bring back some childhood memories for sure!
I am also a HUGE Grey's Anatomy fan and I have 40 minutes until it starts! I can't wait! My cat...well is named George for a reason;) HAHA! 

I am so thankful for my hubby's weekend off. I haven't really seen him all week and I miss him:( I am looking forward to some quality time with him! 

My sister is graduating from Basic Training here in November! I am very proud of her! She is 21 and has had some trouble getting her life together! She is now on the right track! Yea!!! 

This quarter for TPT was awesome! I couldn't believe the total when I saw it! I want to thank each and every one of you who bought something from me! If there is every anything I can do, make or a suggestion you may have please let me know! 

And last but not least...any ideas for a bday present for the hardest.man.to.buy.for.EVER??? I mean, this man buys whatever he wants. I can never get him anything!

Now onto my freebie! In math we have been working on addition and subtraction strategies. We have done expanded algorithms, rounding and the drawing out place value blocks! Well, tomorrow they are going to practice it all!

I created this working sheet to help them show their work. The check box is for doing standard addition or subtraction! If you are interested in this sheet you can get it HERE! I will add it to my TPT and TN stores too for free!

I hope you all have a great night and a fantastic Friday tomorrow!

  7. Darn it, I missed Grey's and I forgot to push "record series" on the DVR! DUH!! I'll have to wait for "on demand".

    I'm horrible at b-day gifts for guys. My DH is turning the big 4-0 in January and I think I'm gonna get him an iPod Touch. I think...I think... What about tickets to something (sporting event, concert, play)? What is he into? A leather jacket? A night at a hotel? Dinner at a Nice Steakhouse or even Outback? A hot air balloon ride? I really want to do a hot air balloon ride, but my DH is terrified of heights!!!

    Good Luck:)
