1. I've been dealing with an inoperable garage door for a couple of days, and my friend's husband came to the rescue this morning!

I still plan to give him a gift card to a sporting goods store or something guyish like that.
3. The third and fourth graders at my school have something called Bobcatfest (our mascot is a bobcat) every Friday afternoon. We get together for different activities and guest speakers, and today we had board game day. I think many of the students had received games for Christmas. Anyway, one of the girls brought this:
5. We are working on elapsed time in math. It is such a challenging concept. We use Math Expressions, and they suggest drawing time lines which seems to help. Any suggestions for helping those that are really struggling?
