Chris, 

I reviewed the link and it has excellent activities for students.  I plan to use the link to extend learning beyond a textbook.  When we make learning more meaningful and apply to the students' own world, then they are more engaged and learning can be fun.

I finally understand what Parent Teacher Conferences are all about

I have parents coming into my classroom today asking how their child is doing in my class. They only have a 95, how can they get a higher grade?Really?This happens over and over again.
