National Frozen Yogurt Day

National Frozen Yogurt Day is observed annually on February 6th.  Frozen yogurt was first developed 1970 in the United States as a soft-serve treat produced by H.P Hood called Frogurt. Humphreys and Dannon soon followed with their own versions of the treat. Its popularity grew in the 80s, mostly due to frozen yogurts “health food” status. Ice cream manufacturers soon caught on, offering low-fat options.  Have fun celebrating with this sweet visual math challenge.  To get a copy that you can upload to your Google Classroom, email one of the elementary ITRTs, Gail Moore or Melanie Lewis.

Are You Part of the In Crowd?

The Google+ Community for Amherst County Public School Elementary Teachers has been up and running for over a week now and we are growing daily.  Each day new resources are posted.  They may not always be for your grade level but then again, you may still want to download them and see if you can tweak them to make them work for your class.  Check with your ITRT to join if you are not already a member.

Happy Hump Day

We are halfway to the weekend!  If you are an elementary teacher, please take a moment today to ask your ITRT about the new Google+ Community.
