I'm so excited to share with you my idea to host Math Monday. I love the teaching of math! I love to spot math in my life, spark interest and curiosity with numbers and other areas of mathematics. I love planning math instruction and watch students learn to struggle and think through problems. I've wished for quite some time there was more math discussion and conversations in the twitter/blogging world. It's getting better and there seems to be momentum brewing so let's take it a step further with a chance to blog and talk more about math within our online community.
It is my hope Math Monday will be a place to share ideas, connect with others, and celebrate anything math related. Here are some ideas of what could be shared on Math Monday.
-A great picture book or chapter book with math ideas in it.
-A picture book or chapter book to launch a problem solving situation.
-A professional resource you've just read.
-A math manipulative you love or don't love.
-Digital math resources.
-A "Math in my World" picture
-A celebration involving math teaching
-A reflection on something that didn't go as well
-A plea for help in understanding a math concept
-Ideas for bringing math into your classroom
-Ideas for organizing math tools or workshops
-Anything is possible!
I hope you will consider stopping by weekly or once in a while to help create a community fostering mathematics and supporting each other with the hard work we do, called teaching. I need your help to build this community. Please consider joining next week or in the future and spread the news that teachers of math have a place to come together and connect. Math Monday is just starting with so many possibilities!
