Last week was Springs (my church) Conference and it AMAZING! Leon Fontaine, Steve Kelly, Dave Martin and Sam Chand ROCKED!  Three nights and two days of some of the most spirit filled and view changing teaching you can get!  I am so thankful to my school and church for the amazing opportunity!

Here is snapshot of our learning:

This week we are back the swing of things and wrapping up our first term in school.  I am trying to stay on top of marking so I can get their reports done early again.  This was helped by one of my amazing students who brought me Tim's this morning.  Naturally he got bonus marks ;).

To celebrate the first "frost on my windshield day" I am offering  12 hour freebie in my store! It is one of my bestselling Friday Fun Series lessons - Playing with Polymers.  It was one of our all time favorite lessons to do.  I used it in Grade 1 but I have heard from other teachers who have used it in Grade 3 to 5 and even Grade 7.  I will be using it with my Grade 7s this springs when we get to the Mixtures and Solutions Unit.  You can download it for free in the next 12 hours here: Playing with Polymers FREEBIE!
