Teaching Computation
Addition and subtraction with regrouping are two critical math skills that all elementary students must learn. One thing that we often forget is that students need to experience math instruction—even computation in different ways. So often we ask them to “fill in the blank” instead of really thinking and tapping into that number sense we know they need. Most math series do ... Read *the* Post

## Distance Learning or Virtual Teaching or Whatever This New Mess Is

Distance Learning? Huh?
So a few weeks ago, if you would have told me I would be teaching my students from my home office, kitchen, couch, and basement I would have thought you were crazy. Yet here we are. Times are scary, folks. I am working on my growth mindset as I plunge myself into figuring this all out. Today I thought I'd share some of my musings with you as I get past my first week ...

## Using Math Sorts to Encourage Productive Struggle

Ah, the things teachers say when deep in the moment of teaching angles.
These words came out of my mouth this week. During a formal observation. While I was teaching math. #lifeinthetrenches
I know you know how it goes--your administrator pops in for those required observations, and you just hope all goes well, that the students rise to the occasion, and that NO ONE STICKS TISSUES IN THEIR ... Read *the* Post

## Construct Viable Arguments and Critique the Reasoning of Others…A Math Sorts Lesson

The Standards for Mathematical Practice should form the foundation of every math "content" lesson, but so often textbooks don't do a good job helping teachers know how to make this happen. Check out this lesson idea that immerses students in the standard of "Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others". See what you think--and imagine how much practice the students got in a ... Read *the* Post

## Daily Math Warm-Ups: Engaging Students with the Math Practice Standards

The first ten minutes of your math lesson will set the tone for the rest of the class. Students must be "activated" and engaged so that they are ready to learn. Using high-level math warm-ups at the start of each lesson will accomplish this goal.
My Math Warm-Up Routine
I have my problem for the day ready--either ready to project, ready to glue into notebooks, or ready to send ... Read *the* Post

## Mind Boggling Math: Infusing the Standards for Mathematical Practice

Where did Mind Boggling Math Come From?
Back five or six years ago, I was searching for an activity that I could have available in my classroom for students to do at a variety of times:
If they finished work early.
Or if I needed a math station.
If I wanted students to work on a challenge so I could pull small groups
The problem I ran into was that my students just weren't ... Read *the* Post
