  1. My favorite is the NCTM. I went to their national conference in Indianapolis last April and it was amazing! Truly life-changing and a fantastic experience.

  2. Love the new resources from Crayola. Wow>
    Also the lego resource.
    I am thrilled to say a new resource for the classroom and a new one to use with my lego fan grandson. Thanks for always finding new resources that are excellent.

  3. I’m liking the International Fund for Animal Welfare. Anything I can do to help my students be better stewards of their environment! 😀

  4. My favorite is the NCTM, too; however since I teach Special Needs kids and not just math, I am no longer able to attend (I could if I paid my own way). Definitely an amazing conference!!!

  5. Wow! All of these Look great! I love elephants and I would love sharing how elephants live with my students. Elephants never leave a family members behind and they mourn their own dead. I feel the love the elephants have for each other is the way I love my own family. I would really enjoy sharing this with my students. I teach 3-6th grade, high functioning structured autism classroom in the PV school district.
