What Is Math Workshop? -Guest Blogger!

Hey all!

My friend Jen at Smith Curriculum Consulting has some great information about Math Workshop that I thought I would share!
Do you do Math Workshop!  I do.  There is a lot that goes into the planning of a great workshop but it is worth it when you start to see the results!
Take a peek at what she has to say!

Math Workshop is one of the key ingredients in a Guided Math block in your math classes. Math Workshop allows for you to facilitate independent and individualized learning in a small group setting. While you are working with a small group for Guided Math, or facilitating math conferences 1-on-1, the other students in your classroom are engaged in a variety of tasks. These tasks that are set-up around your classroom are chosen by you to accommodate the various learning styles and needs of your students. Only you know your students and their needs, which means that only you should be choosing which activities will and won’t work for your set of students.…

No more .com

So I am kind of sad but when I got rid of my .com I lost 3 years of blogs.  It is what it is but that is where we are at.  I am currently trying to start up a youtube.  Please go subscribe if you have time.  my husband is going to help me so we should get up one video per week. 

I am also sad because I lost a lot of resources and followers.  If you are here from the new links thanks,  if you are an OG follower DOUBLE, even TRIPPLE thanks!
Here is to the 2018-19 School-year!

Cha cha cha changes...And Slant Box is Back

Hi there!

I bet you have been wondering where I was?
Well.  First I got moved to 8th grade algebra over the winter break.
I am a bit heartbroken over this but will get over it pretty quickly.  My students are relatively nice and have adapted ok. 
Here is some pictures of my new classroom:

Going to a new grade level was not what scared me, having new students was not what scared me, being on a new team was not what scared me.
What scared me was trying to learn a new way of thinking about algebra.  I am good at algebra.  I mean I passed the secondary math test...I have to be ok at it right?  But being able to do things and being able to TEACH things are two completely different things.  The other day I sat at my "desk" (I do not have a desk in my new room...just a kidney table) until 6:30 pm trying to find an aproachable way to teach writing a function from a table?  WHAT Guess and check is not an option any more.  In 6th grade it was.  It was also called a "rule" no…

DIY Xmas gifts

HI!  I had a huge outcry for the step by step for my DIY Christmas Mugs so here it is!
Gather your materials.  I have two porcelain mugs I got for $2.99 at Target, I have OIL BASED PAINT MARKERS, washi tape, a pencil and my printed out designs. 
The markers MUST be OIL BASED.  You can not use regular Sharpie markers and expect them to stay on.   You can see I used a few different brands.  The Sharpie is the smoothest but these worked.

Take your printed out design and flip it upside down.  Use your pencil to completely cover the back side with the graphite from the pencil. 

Flip it right side again and use the washi tape to tape it onto your cup.  I like the washi tape because it leaves ABSOLUTELY no residue.

Start to trace your design with your SHARP pencil.

This picture is hard to see, but once traced, take your stencil off and you should have pencil marks on your cup!

Go ahead and start filling in your lines with your oil based paint marker. 
Bake it at 350 for about 20 minutes in …
