Saturday Snapshots from Math Conference

Hey everyone!  I just got back from a road trip to San Antonio where I attended a math conference.  I had a blast as usual and learned tons!!  I’m linking up with Miss Nelson at Run! Miss Nelson’s Got the Camera! for the first time ever.  Today I’m sharing some random pictures but I plan to share some of the really cool things I learned in the next few days after I’ve caught up on some sleep. 



The Alamo


The Riverwalk


I met Stuart Murphy, author of the Math Starts series.  He was nice enough to autograph a couple of books for me.


I got some great ideas from visiting Dinah Zike’s booth.  She is an amazing woman with some very creative ideas.  Here are a few:
Fraction Quilt




Addition Flap Book



Envelope Book

This book has 3 pockets for storing goodies.



More Cool Stuff from Dinah Zike



If you ever have the chance to attend a conference with Dinah Zike, you MUST do it!  She is very inspiring and she is the queen of all things foldable.

Have a great weekend!  I hope to be back soon to share what I learned at the conference.

  4. Hey Hooty! I found you on Run! Mrs. Nelsons' Got the camera!!

    Dinah Zike is amazing! I live in SA & attended UTSA to get my bachelors in sped. We were lucky to have her as a guest speaker during our first 2 weeks of student teaching. I learned an abundance!

    It looks like you had fun downtown! :) Sometimes I go and visit the Alamo and feel like a tourist (for fun), even though I've been about 10 times!
