I've got a secret!

I've been keeping a secret, and today I FINALLY shared it with my students and thought I should share it with all of you as well!

I gave my students this riddle page. They had to solve the multiplication problems and match the products to a letter to solve the code and discover my secret!

Here's it is, so you can take a minute and guess my secret along with my students! I put it on Facebook today as well so that I could finally announce to the rest of our family and friends!

O-H So Blessed

Did you get it?! If you don't want to figure out what it says, here's the answer....


Yep, that's right! I'm pregnant! My husband and I are expecting our first child in July and we are so excited to finally be sharing the news with everyone we know!

I made a version of this fun riddle page for any teacher to use! It says "Your teacher is having a baby!" using multiplication or addition facts, instead of having a specific teacher's name. If you or a colleague ever need to reveal a pregnancy to their class, you can download by clicking here!

Thanks so much for sharing in my secret today with my hubby and I! I can't wait to continue sharing more with you as we continue this new journey!


  1. Wooooo Hoooooo! So excited it's FINALLY out! I'm so happy for you both and can't wait to meet your little peanut!

  2. Congratulations Tami! We met at the TpT meet up in Binghamton in May!
    A healthy and happy nine months to you! All the best!

    1. I remember! Thanks so much, Michele! I won't be seeing you there this year, but hopefully next year! :)

  3. Tami!!! Congratulations!!! I was just on your IG to see how you've been and then saw THIS! What a beautiful blessing and I love the way you shared that with your class. I may use this on how to tell my students I am getting married. Thank you for the inspiration! Are you planning a meetup in March? If you are and need help let me know []

  4. Congrats! Thank you so much for sharing this. I think it is a fabulous way to share the big news with students (and parents when they bring it home). A little note: the addition pages still say "multiplication" in the directions at the top of the page. Again, thank you so much for sharing this.

  5. This is DARLING!! I can't wait to use this with my 3rd graders this year too!! :)

  6. I just came across this as I'm looking for a way to tell my class. Do you by chance have this in addition/subtraction???

    1. Yes, I do! It comes in both multiplication & addition for free here in my TpT store :)
