Logic Problems to Last the School Year

Logic problems are a fun way to keep kids engaged year round. My store is packed with these that may be purchased for a dollar a piece or in bulk for a discounted price. Why not plan ahead and take care of all the holidays at once with one of my logic problems to last the year packets.


This original packet was made to challenge students in third through sixth grades, but some of these problems are tough and most likely would meet the needs of older students in the regular classroom. 

The booklet contains twelve logic problems from the first day of school until the Tired Teachers at the end. Along the way, students will tackle challenges centered around Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas (2), Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, April Fools Day, Easter, and Mother's Day. Right now it's set at a reduced price of $8.75, so please check it out.   https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Logic-Problems-to-Last-the-School-Year-IG-1264788




If you teach younger kids, no worries, I have the materials for your kids, too, with Logic Problems to Last the Year (Book II) for grades 1 - 3. This mini version of the original book contains six logic problems surrounding the holidays of Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter, and our American Independence Day. These matrix logic problems contain one grid to challenge our bright younger students, but once again, they could also challenge an older child in the regular classroom. Book II sells for the reduced price of only $3.95. 




If you like logic or any activities to challenge bright students, please check out my store at:

Summer Fun for Kids

Here in the south, we've been out of school for about a week. Before you get too green with envy, please note that teachers started this school year in July. Luckily, the powers that be got some sense, and we won't see our classrooms until August this next school year.

Being a lover of summer, I never understood the concept of, "I'M BORED!" over the summer; however, we all know kids who yearn for things to do. Why not send your kids off with my Boredom Busters at the end of the school year? Once they take up your text books, you can even keep them happy with these fun puzzles to challenge minds. If you're a parent, here's something to keep your child challenged and entertained.


This booklet is for young minds in grades 1 - 3. It contains three summer themed logic puzzles, a sedoku, a maze, and a quote puzzle. It is targeted to gifted and talented students, and I've marked the price down to $3.95. That's a real bargain since I sell my puzzles individually for $1 a piece.



This booklet is for those older intellectually gifted kids in grades 3 - 5. Inside, you will find three logic problems, a sedoku, a quote puzzle, and a funny story, "Beware of Cooties," that is guaranteed to bring a chuckle. This, too, has a reduced price of $4.25. 

So how about it? 
I'd love for you to stop by and check out 
these products or others at my store.



If logic is your thing, my store is loaded with it!

#MM Wood

Sometimes, dominoes are wooden. Sometimes,they're made of plastic, 
but Jord watches are always wooden. 
Have you entered my contest to win your own Jord watch? If not, stop by my post 
and enter on the Rafflecopter above.  

Jord Wooden Watch Giveaway

Here's something fun to view with music, 
even if these dominoes look plastic.


When in high school, most clarinetists played plastic instruments, but mine was wooden. 
The tone was beautiful, even though 
I never played as well as this guy.
Wood is awesome!

Dinner at Hamburger Mary's

Last night, my daughter Erica, niece Jessica, her good friend Kendall, and I went out to dinner at Hamburger Mary's in Orlando. While at the restaurant, Joan Crawford led us in several fun rounds of trivia. The first step to the trivia game was to choose a group name that needed to be terribly dirty and disgusting. To quote Marissa Tomei from  My Cousin Vinny, "They Worh!" Some memorable teams were "I Have 69 Problems Because my Girl Friend is a Midget" and "If the Red River Flows, Take the Dirt Path." Miss Crawford didn't like our team name because he is not a Harry Potter fan. We called ourselves, "You Can Slytherin My Chamber of Secrets."


Our Drag Queen Host
The names were just a small sampling of the fun to be had at trivia night. All of the questions centered around movie themes. I learned that the number one hit song from a movie is "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," of The Wizard of Oz fame; Meryl Streep has been nominated for an Oscar eighteen times; and the Oscars were delayed in 1968 when Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot.

We also had fun with our trivia MC's off the cuff comments. For example, when a lady ran to get her prize, he said, "Here comes a lady with a bad bra." Also, when mentioning gays, he pointed to a table and said, "Like you guys." Finally, a woman celebrating her upcoming wedding was asked the gender of her beloved. When she said she was marrying a man, he wanted to know why she came to a gay establishment to celebrate. He thought she was just rubbing in the fact that she CAN get married.



Our last round was called the Gay, Gay, Gay, Gay, Gay, Gay Round. All of the questions involved either gay actors, actresses, or movies. Since our host told us we could change our names and most of us should, we decided to call ourselves, Straight,  Straight, Straight, Straight,  Straight, Straight. When people booed, he wanted to know which table we were at. I tried to duck low, but after awhile my daughter raised her hand, since he wasn't letting this one go. He said, "We were alright" and wanted to know why we never have our own parade. I guess it's time to plan a Straight Pride Parade.

#MM Live At The Garden

I am thrilled to be this week's spotlight dancer and to take you to the concert we attended Saturday night. Sorry I can't share the delicious picnic basket, but I'll give you a taste of the music we heard. 


Monday Music Moves Me is into male rock 'n roll or country stars this week, so I'm featuring the bands we just heard.

First up, we enjoyed The Plain White Ts. They were a special treat that didn't even get their name printed on the ticket. Quite an under appreciated band who had a fabulous stage presence.


Next up came Daughtry, who we really couldn't see because two rude women blocked our view and refused to sit down throughout the entire performance, even though five different people contacted event staff. When I asked nicely, the beotch said, "I can do what I want." Selfish, but I believe karma will get her back.



Before the Goo Goo Dolls took stage, event staff had a long chat with the women––who stayed seated throughout most of the performance. Of course, it didn't matter to us because we moved seats along with four other frustrated people. 




As the spotlight dancer, I get to pick the theme in two weeks. I've chosen a great one for me here in Memphis and anyone else from a musical place. If it's tough for you, feel free to reach a little outside your borders as I present two requests: Tell us where you are from, and post your hometown bands, artists, or songs.
