It's a New Year Math Linky

I don't know about you, but school has been the last thing on my mind lately. With all the business of the holidays, we've barely had a chance to relax.

We had a great Christmas this year! My son, now almost 3, finally understands the concept of Santa. His face was priceless when he saw the stockings filled and the presents under the tree Christmas morning. Definitely made for some memorable moments.

Then Boxing day came, and both my husband and I got hit with the flu, with our son following shortly after...more memorable moments...just not good ones.

So here I am, back to my old self, and realizing that school will be back in full swing before I know it...and I still haven't touched that pile of marking I brought home. Sound familiar?

Well I thought I would try and help you out a bit with the planning part. With the new year upon us, I am looking for some new ideas to try out in my Math class, and I would love to share all these wonderful ideas with you!

So here it is, my first ever Math linky...and if you keep reading there is also a chance to win a shopping spree in my store!


I would love for you to share some of the amazing things you have tried in your own Math classroom. Whether it be a great blog post or a freebie, please leave the link below and include the appropriate grade level (preferably 3-9). I look forward to finding some new ideas for the year ahead and I hope you find some too!


Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all the best in 2014!

P.S. Fourteen just happens to be my favourite number, so I have a feeling its going to be a great year!

We already have one exciting event happening in 2014, the first person to guess what it might be will win a $10 shopping spree in my store! Leave your guess in the comments below along with your email.

  2. Great idea Kim! I linked up some oldie but goodie posts. I shared on my personal FB and on my Teachingisagift page. I hope whatever you have planned for 2014 is awesome...perhaps you have bought a new home? Happy and prosperous new year, no matter what your great news is!

      We actually moved into our new house in 2013, so this year we decided to fill up another room with baby #2!
      Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks for hosting the linky! I am going to guess May although I think April is the best time to have a baby if you are a teacher. There is nothing like not having to go back to work after April break! My baby #3 is due this May! Missed April by a month this time

    2. Nope, not May. I agree about April babies though, my son was born on April 14. Fortunately in Canada I don't have to worry about going back to work for a whole year. Very thankful for the time I will get to spend with baby and my son.

      May is a great month too! At least summer holidays are just around the corner. Good luck in the months ahead!

      I'll give everyone else a hint - I'm due during this school year.
