Up next is Falling for Place Value by Jennifer Findley where students determine the place value of an underlined digit to help solve a riddle!

What I’m Working On: Week of September 15-19th

Last week I started my Sunday blog posts about What I’m Working On and it really did help keep me accountable this week to what I was doing. Out of the four things on my list, I was able to get two of the LARGE items done and I’ve pulled the other two to work on this week as well.


Success in Secondary September Linky Party

Another second Saturday is here and that means it is time for the Success in Secondary linky party once again! School has started all around and we are each getting into our grooves once again. What does that mean? We all are looking for new ways to implement ideas and strategies that work for our new groups of kiddos!

Success in Secondary Linky Party

Rules are pretty simple… You MAY link up an unlimited number of blog posts and freebies (current and meaningful). You MAY link up one product for every blog post or FREEBIE. Yep, I’m changing the game a bit and making it One for One!

Now, on top of that please take time to leave a comment on other blog posts so that we can share the love on each others blogs.

Where in the World is 4mulaFun?

Yes, I am continuing to travel this school year and while I have several places I am working with right now to set up workshops, I have also got some great ones already booked! Interested in knowing where I will be then check out below.


September begins with my hubby and I taking a trip to Tempe, Arizona where I will be presenting a session and exhibiting at Arizona Association of Teachers of Mathematics. If you are in the Phoenix/Tempe area take time to sign up as you won’t want to miss out on this conference coming up on September 20th.


Moving along to the end of the month I will be leaving off to North Georgia RESA to present an all day workshop for teachers in the regional area on October 1st. I am EXCITED about this workshop as I haven’t been to North Georgia and I’m loving all my Georgia peeps! :)


I know that I have a few different schools in Texas that are looking into bringing me out and are just trying to set up the right date and time. If you are interested in having a day (or even an afternoon) of 4mulaFun, please make sure to check out my Workshops Page and complete the Google Survey. **If you are in the DFW area (within 40 miles of 76017) I do charge a reduced daily rate.**

Spanish Solve And Snips You Say?

Spanish Math Resources

Why yes, yes I do! Many teachers have reached out to me wishing that my resources also came in Spanish. I have acquired an amazing translator to work with me to get all of my resources translated just for you!

First up is the Solve and Snips! These interactive word problems, that are also self-checking, are perfect to use in an ESL or Bilingual classroom.

All teacher pages will remain in English while student pages will be in Spanish. Check out my Spanish Resources Category on Teachers Pay Teachers for all of the great resources as they come out!
