Too bad you couldn't have been her! <br /><br />I love anything that allows students to get up and out of their seats to "play" with their learning. Math is one of those subjects that you can do that more so than reading....<br /><br />The class teaching math that I took as a undergraduate gave me a lot of good ideas such as using bell ringers, and math munchies! So nice to use food for anything! ;-) It is hard to break away from the pencil paper math lessons. But I think that if you can teach the objectives first and then teach the lesson by reinforning it with hands on activites your students will learn more and growth better as little math people.<br /><br />As for the "not being a math person" I have grown to hate it! SErioulsy hate it!!! What can I do to change my attidude so that I will not put a bad taste in my student's mouth for math?<br /><br />I wish I had you for my math teacher! :-)Skidmore LD response Bloghttps://www.blogger.com/profile/05054476923647849346noreply@blogger.com
