Guess what~

Today is an exciting day for me!  Today is my day to be featured on New Teacher Blog Tuesday over at Fun in 1st Grade.  Never one to give a completely straight answer when I can answer with a math challenge instead, see if you can figure out how many candles were on my last birthday cake.    

Actually, I think I was 10 the last time I had candles on my birthday cake, but you know what I mean. :)

And for those that just can't get enough, I now have a Facebook page- new followers are always welcome to *like* and comment!

OK, Dana, a prize for guessing correctly.... hmmm... how about a Starbucks gift card for the first three people to guess correctly.  Don't post the answer in the comments, send a message to me with your answer, your name and your email address (let's see if I can do this) here.  Contest closes at midnight, MST, Feb. 27th. You need not be present to win! (I always wanted to say that.) :)  

I'll announce the winners tomorrow.  By the way, family and friends may not enter- you already know the answer! 

*Winner update...No one got it, and what kind of math teacher would I be if I gave you the answer?  I will not deny your right to struggle! :)

Still learning!

  1. Is the link above supposed to take us to your facebook page? If so how do I message you? I'm still a bit clueless on the facebook stuff. PLUS I am not at all sure that I have the right answer but it's going to drive me crazy if I don't find out what it is!!! :) I love puzzles like that!!


  2. OK, so I just responded to a "Don't respond here" email... Yes, it's supposed to go to my FB where I hope you can leave a message without posting, the way it works on personal FB pages. I hope. :) Give it a shot. Pam =)

  3. OK, I checked. You just hover over Desktop Learning Adventures and *like* and *message* pops up. Leave the answer that way. Still no winners!

  4. Pamela, found you through "fun in 1st grade." Really enjoyed reading your bio and your writing style. We have alot in common. I so agree...who has time for reading books when your a blogger, right? Like you, if I'm not reading blogs, I'm reading tutorials on how to do this and that! I too, was only an Arial font girl when I started blogging in July....and now I'm font & doodle frame ADDICTED!!!! So watch out! I feature "Bloomin' Blogger Sundays" every Sunday on my blog where I a post a blogger how-to each week! You should check it out! This Sunday I'll be featuring how to add the Facebook "like" pop up window on your blog that will pop up when others visit your blog for the first time.
    Welcome aboard!
