Anyone else looking to improve their math instruction next year?
Most summers I do some sort of a book study on the blog, but this summer I decided to try something new! I know a lot of people have big dreams of making sweeping changes in their classrooms or their instruction and hope that summer will provide them the time to do that.
I have a little “challenge” for those of you who are looking to make some changes in how you teach math this year…maybe not a complete overhaul–but you want to be more deliberate and intentional with what you do. If this sounds like you, then this series of blog posts and “mini challenges” is just the ticket! So whether you teach kindergarten or fifth grade…if you teach math, give this summer challenge a try and see what you think!
You can end this summer feeling organized…feeling planned…and KNOWING that you are going to be better at meeting each and every students’ math needs–with less stress for you!
7 Challenges. 1 summer. You can do it!
There are 7 challenges that are featured here on the blog. You can do all of them–or some of them. You can do them alone, or team up with teachers you know and love and work on these together! Dig in and do a bunch of them together or stretch them out over the summer…whatever works! Each challenge is NOT meant to take a ton of time–although depending on your current situation, you may wish to go even deeper into some of them. Work at your own pace…and join any time!
Check out the blog post. Grab the freebie. Get to work!
Each of the 6 challenges will have a blog post with some background information and the challenge itself. Along with it, there will be a freebie “checklist” or other materials to help you implement the challenge. These freebies are not in my store and are available only through my blog at this time. Enjoy the structure of making strides toward getting more organized, feeling proactive, and maybe even getting energized to try some new things!
So are you interested?
