Trivia Crack

It started innocently enough.  An invitation via Facebook to play a game of Trivia Crack.  Now, several weeks later, I'm playing way more than any adult should be playing a game-especially a senior citizen.  It got me to thinking about a possible game that might be played in a classroom setting.  I came up with two games I thought might be fun.  Of course I couldn't use crack in the title-but between us-it was the inspiration for the two I'm showing here.
If you haven't played Trivia Crack, it's a simple and free download from the app store.  If you find you run out of opponents, look for me.  I'm always up for a game!

Ideas For Valentine's Day in the Classroom

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we wind up with our kiddos excited and ready for their party but no party in sight!  Here is a cute art project and 2 of my products that just might make the wait a little easier and keep the happy in the day-for you as well.  

I checked the site that offered this picture.  While no directions were available, using the picture will lead you.

Here is a game that will actually practice math facts.
