This calculator license is such a fun idea from Amanda at Teaching Maddeness.

She shared this post on Owl-Ways Be Inspired about how she gets her students motivated to work accurately when solving two-digit addition and subtraction problems.  And it involves the cutest calculator license in the whole world.

I love this post from Vicky at Teaching and Much Moore about how she repurposes kids blocks for math.  Such a good idea for place value.

Maria from Everyone Deserves to Learn shared how she teaches New Years Eve Around the World.  That's kind of smart especially for older grades if your students have done Christmas Around the World one too many times.

Stop it.  How cool is this digital poster lesson idea from The Applicious Teacher?  Hop on over to her blog to read about how she used this free app.

And last, but not least, is this darling idea Rachel from The Tattooed Teacher posted on her  Instagram account.  It's not too late to write New Year's resolutions for characters and animals.  It can't be too late because this is too much fun to miss.

Happy January everyone! I hope 2016 is a wonderful year for you!
