Sunday Scoop and a Number Talk

Today I am linking up with Teaching Trio for their Sunday Scoop linky party.
The weather has finally turned gorgeous around here!  Yesterday we walked around in tank tops - NO COATS!!!!!  So I need to get some lawn work going.  I do like playing in the garden...
Yay!  Crocuses!!!
We have started doing Number Talks.  Now I know my American friends are way ahead of me here, but these are new to me.  We just learned about them during our recent Collaborative Inquiry, and I love them!!!!!  The children are so engaged!  Here is the third one ever that we have tried.
Aren't we clever in Grade ¾?!
I hope you all had a great weekend too!

Currently-April

Hey Friends!  Look how early I'm posting this month!  Whoo hoo!!  I am linking up with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade for her fun Currently party.
It is actually freezing rain - IN APRIL!!!!!  The buses just north of us are cancelled but it looks like ours are running.  That is great because I have been away for the last couple of days with a very sore neck (infected lymph node).  I had to have an IV for two days.  (Did you know that they leave the IV in you and send you home so you can get another dose the next day?  Owwwww!)  Not the best week ever.  And I miss my sweet little class.
Today our Roots of Empathy baby is coming for a visit.  This is going to be a great day!!!
