*Happy Birthday to you!*

I remember last summer well. I had been out of the classroom for several years. We moved to another state. I decided to go back to teaching math ... and I was nervous! So last summer I scoured the Internet and while surfing, I found this amazing math community. I participated in the new bloggers initiative and when I could, I contributed to Made4Math Monday and #MyFavFriday! (I had much more difficulty with the favorite Friday posts. I think it was because at the end of the week I was exhausted!)

I love Made4Math Monday ... the activities, classroom decor, posters, organizational tools were awesome last year! I look forward to learning so much more this year.

It appears that I will teach advanced Algebra 2 this year instead of Algebra 1. My background is in working with gifted learners so I am excited about that part. I know I'll have much studying to do this year as I spent all last year learning the ins and outs of the Algebra 1 curriculum.

I want to start the year with stations (maybe not day 1 but more like day 2) ... reviewing some basic skills. I want to observe my students at work. I'm considering this set of stations although I have some other ideas simmering on the back burner as well.

*What might you do differently?*

*What activities are you planning for the first day or two of school?*

ReplyDeleteSherrie and others - I forgot to change a setting. It's fixed now :)

DeleteLove your stations! TFS

ReplyDeleteThank you! I know our first unit is on functions - especially reviewing linear functions ... still thinking about how to incorporate these. On the first day I want to do some team building, get to know you activities, and collect information from my students. Hope to publish plans on my blog.
