Math Minutes

Updates from the September Math Specialist Meeting

Good Afternoon Everyone! I am so excited to be starting the school year supporting the work of such an amazing group of teachers! Each month, I will provide a summary of the information provided to me at the Math Specialist Meeting. I'm trying out a new newsletter tool, so let me know what you think of the design. Here is the first "Math Minutes" newsletter of the 2015-2016 school year.

New Resources provided to each school!

“Make-and-Take” party invitation coming soon! We will explore the new resources, check out the manipulatives, and make workstations you can use in your classroom the same day!


Be on the lookout for an evite to RSVP.
