**Diving into Learning**is having a

**Linky party this week. Those interested are creating a blog article about some of the marvelous "finds" they have downloaded or used from Pinterest. They then go to the***Pinterest*

**Diving into Learning**blog and link up. I have already seen some very creative ideas there; so, you might want to check it out for your classroom as well.

I only started on

**about a year ago, but I love it. Not only do I post many resources and teaching ideas there, but I learn so-o-o much. For example, I learned how to pack one suitcase with enough stuff for a week. (My husband is thrilled with this one.) I also learned that when you fry bacon, to make a small cup out of aluminum foil; pour the bacon grease into it; let the grease harden; then close up the aluminum cup and toss it into the trash. That is one I use all of the time!***Pinterest*

On my

**account I have a board entitled***Pinterest*

**Humor - We Need It!**I post many math cartoons or humorous sayings there. My favorite subject to teach my college remedial math students is geometry, and I have plenty of corny jokes that I intersperse into my lessons. Here's one.

*What did the little acorn say when it grew up?*Gee- I'm - A - Tree! (Geometry)**Or about this one?**

*What did the Pirate say when his parrot flew away?*Polly-Gone (Polygon)Here are some other geometry funnies from Pinterest.

Try placing a riddle or cartoon in the middle of a test. I often do, and I know exactly where the students are by their laughs. It helps them to relax and maybe get rid of those mathphobic tendencies. I hope these math cartoons brought a smile to your face. Have a great week of teaching!
