Getting Ready for 2018/2019


Visible Learning for Mathematics by John Hattie,

Making Thinking Visible by Ron  Ritchhart


Teaching Students to Communicate Mathematically by Laney Sammons. This fits nicely with Minds on Mathematics by Wendy Ward Hoffer. I’ve heard a rumor that my school is going to work on PEBC’s thinking strategies this year.

The Power of Our Words by Paula Denton, EdD. I’ve read this last year. We got this from our principal for summer reading this year.

Routines for Reasoning by Grace Kelemanik, et, al, This is the second reading of this book, to remind me of the routines and structures.

Comprehending Problem Solving by Arthur Hyde (parts for the 2nd time). A little hard to read, in my opinion – maybe it wasn’t what I was looking for.

Yep, there is a theme. I really want to work on students talking and writing about math this year.

Working On

Doing the activities to plan the order for themed bell ringers.  You can read more about themed bell ringers here,  herehere, and here.

Building Powerful Numeracy by Pamela Weber Harris

Lessons and Activities for Building Powerful Numeracy by Pamela Weber Harris

Wardrobe – paring down even more.  Think wardrobe capsules.

I joined the 40-Hour Teacher Workweek. Yes, even after 21 years, I don’t feel organized and that I spend way too much time with school work.
