I hope you are all enjoying your summer!
Jivey is having a great Workshop Wednesday this month on how to set up workshops!
First, I highly recommend this book:
This book totally changed the way I think about math and teaching math. She explains what to do in a easy to understand manner-inspiring you to set the next day!
I also recommend this book-but more for the younger grades
I have all of her other books, and thought this would be a good addition. It has good information, but I did not find it as helpful as a 4th grade teacher.
Another thing you need...Games and Centers!
Jennifer Findley from
has great upper grade math centers at a very reasonable price! Her button above will take you to her TPT shop where you can browse at your leisure.
I've printed out a ton of centers this year...
|I have two bins STUFFED full of centers...it's overflowing!|
Right now I have 3 rotations-but that could change next year with my new class and piloting a new math program.
Math is a little up in the air-we've been looking at programs these past few days-who know what we will choose! It's certainly been an interesting process.
