Valentines Puzzle

We have created a Valentines Slope Puzzle.  Students will be coloring, cutting, and gluing each puzzle piece according to its slope.  Students will be determining the slope between two given points.  This is a great hands on activity that also asks students to determine the difference between an undefined slope and no slope (zero).


 Right now, you can purchase this activity through our Teachers Pay Teachers store.  We should have it on our online store very shortly.

My Girls

My daughter, Brooklyn, turned 2 months old!

David loves to dress his girls in Chargers gear.


I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and ate lots of food!!!  I had a great time with my family and of course my sister and I talked a lot about Teachers Pay Teachers.  My sister is also a teacher and sells her Science material on TPT.  After my husband, my daughters, and I got home we decided to put up our Christmas tree.  My husband surprised both my daughter and I by creating a velcro Christmas tree for Chloe.  He stayed up past midnight for 3 nights cutting and coloring the ornaments.  Let me know what you think of his Christmas tree.  Happy Holidays!!!

Chloe LOVED her tree!

David was really creative with the ornaments!
