I don't think I've talked much about this before but I am totally an ELA kinda gal. I LOVE to read and enjoy writing (always have) and my passion for both is evident in my classroom set up and in my instruction. So while that's all fine and dandy and makes me a pretty good ELA teacher..it also means that I have lots of room to grow as a math teacher. And the best way I know to improve my math knowledge and instruction is to totally immerse myself in math; hence, the title of this blog post..."Math on My Mind." I have spent the better part of the summer with my nose in the standards, my state's unpacking documents, and materials from my district. So in honor of my math studies (and a laborious project that I worked on along the way), I've decided to host a giveaway and my first ever linky party (please don't leave me hangin' friends).
Let's start with the giveaway part because that's lots of fun! I have decided to give away EVERY.SINGLE. math product (all 8 of them, haha) in my TPT store to one lucky person! Most of these items are aligned with third grade standards but would be great for expanding second graders' knowledge or remediating fourth graders. So here's what you can win:
First up, my newest project...3rd Grade Interactive Math Notebook...it covers ALL standards!!!
Here's what else is up for grabs:
Now for the linky party! I hope you'll link up and share some of your fabulous ideas for math. What are your ideas for keeping students engaged? How do you teach the standards to the depth required by CCSS? How do you use/teach your students the Math Practice Standards? What are some of your best ideas and strategies? I can't wait to see what you all share!
