these are a few of my favorite things!

Over break, I began tackling my big math project for this year. My district uses the Everyday Math curriculum and each student has a math journal to go along with the lessons. There are "math boxes" for each lesson as well that review previously learned skills and preview skills coming up. I have found that there are several students in my class that breeze through those math boxes. I began creating a more advanced version of the pages: using the same types of problems, but making them more challenging.
We are currently on Chapter 4 in our math series so I began by making the math boxes that correlate to that unit. I hope to make each chapter as we come to it during the school year. Pick up your copy of Chapter 4 for FREE from my TPT store!! Keep checking back for more chapters. As my principal would say, "We are building the airplane while we are in flight."
|Something that I try to instill in my students every day!|
Until next time,
