Speaking of, let's look at what happned this week!
My Favorite New Notebook:
I have a lot to do on a daily basis with 3 preps plus all of the other things I try to juggle. I often
My Favorite Lesson of the Week:
a great lesson plan on how to introduce proofs using word puzzles and I really liked it. This year, I tweaked it a bit to include the structure of a 2-column proof with the puzzles and the kiddos took to it like it was nothing! The next day, we did algebraic and basic geometric proofs and they rocked it! This literally was the smoothest transition to statements and reasons that I've ever had and many students commented positively on how much they enjoyed the lesson. That's a keeper, folks!
My Favorite Warmup of the Week:
My Favorite Instructional Technology Moment of the Week:
BUT - thanks to the comments and the running around I did during 1st hour, I was able to edit it and make some much needed revisions for my 2nd hour and it went much better. We don't use the Chromebooks a ton in my class, but I am super grateful for tools such as Desmos that allow for some great mathematical conversations!
My Favorite Acts of Student Kindness:
I really have some great kids this year and while they can sometimes be onery, I am so blessed to be their teacher and to play a small part in their lives. Sometimes in the busyness of life, we (I) can lose sight of my "why" of what we do - and in one small act of kindness and appreciation, it made so many wrong moments right again. Thank you, kiddo - I needed that :)
