  • Thanks for posting all the current deals! I really love the way you have a banner with all your forms of contact linked at the end of your post. Is this an image map? I would love a tutorial on how to make that for my own posts!

    • Yes, it's an image map. I don't have a tutorial but it's fairly straightforward.

      You create your image, scale it to the size you want, and then upload it online. You use the direct image link on You right click to create a bo and a link over the image you want to be linked somewhere. When it's all done, you paste the entire code into your post. I have the code pasted as a post template so it always shows up.

      I hope this helps!

  • Hi,

    I love, love LOVE your daily math warm ups. I purchased both the 2nd and the 3rd grade ones having taught both grades. This year I am working at a new school and am teaching math. Is there any chance at all that you have, or will make a set for 4th grade? I would absolutely purchase them and would be sooooo excited.

    Thank you so much! You are fabulous 🙂
