Puppy Update: We found good loving homes for 7 of the puppies so we only have 5 puppies left. Here is the math problem to represent the puppy count as of today.
We started out with 12 puppies OR We found homes for 7 puppies
We gave away 7 puppies Plus the 5 puppies we have left
How many puppies do we have left? How many puppies did we start with?
- 7 + 5
= 5 = 12
There is math in many activities of everyday living. And there is more than one way to solve a math problem. Shopping, measuring for recipes, counting baseball cards, adding the days until school starts, and looking at the clock to see how long it is before dinner are all ways to use math and numbers. Where else do you use math, numbers, or counting in your daily routine?

I have a blog where I review books for children. Carla's Cloud Catastrophe is a funny and imaginative book for children ages 4-8. Carla is missing her birthday party because the clouds are falling from the sky into the town where she lives. Can you imagine if that reallly happened on your birthday? What would you do? It seems silly but oh what fun stomping through the clouds might be.

My Favorite Part of a New School Year
My favorite part of starting a new school year or a new writing project is gathering my supplies. I love notepads, sticky notes, fun pens, and goofy paper to write my stories. What is your favorite part of starting a new school year? Is it the new teacher, making new friends, being in a new grade, or learning new things? If you really don't like school, is there one thing you can try this year to make it better? Write and let me know how your new school year is going? I would love to hear about it.
