Mathematize Me!

Best Practices in Math - December, 2015

First issue Welcome!

Welcome to the first edition of Mathematize Me! Just like a sweet, chocolate, marshmallow SMORE I hope you will find this SMORE inviting and delicious. Articles, links and highlights will change each edition based on feedback from you! So please let me know what you think about the articles, games and links. Are there any topics you would like me to highlight in the next edition of MATHEMATIZE ME?

Thank you,

Mathematical Practices Posters with child friendly language!

The Mathematical Practice Standards are the HABITS OF MIND that we want to develop in our students. Why not share them with your students? Here are two sites that list the Mathematical Practices in child friendly ways.

Mathematical Practices Poster

Just click on the Mathematical Practice and scroll down to the grade level poster you'd like to print. The wording starts out simple for K-1 and then gets more sophisticated for higher grade levels.

Mathematical Practice Posters by grade level - These are great to hang in your classroom.

Great Minds offers some great FREE Parent Resources so that parents can help their child with their EngagNY Module homework pages. They are very well done!
