My Slightly Famous Husband!

This is not teaching related except for the fact that my students loved it!  My husband was on The Rick Mercer Show this week - and I was there during part of the filming.  If you have about 6 minutes to spare, it is a very fun clip.

Wordless Wednesday

It has been ages since I have written to you!  First of all, I had a cold that hung on for weeks!!!!!  Then bad kitty, Jax, broke my iPhone!  He smashed it to smithereens.  Don't worry - I have an Otterbox now.  Lesson learned.  Then, this weekend I had fabulous intentions of writing - even just to say Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends, but our family getaway location had very very poor internet.

Anyway, I'm linking up with Miss DeCarbo at Sugar and Spice for Wordless Wednesday.
So here it it:
This is one of my favourite places in the world!  Our whole family goes here every Thanksgiving to relax by... walking down the mountain!  I hit over 20000 steps on my fitbit!!!

What we've been up to?  We finished our place value unit with some Scholastic Book Order shopping.
We have also been experimenting with some optical illusions in art.
Check in on my blog on Sunday - I will be hosting a fabulous giveaway!!  Have a  great night!
