Welcome Back

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a fabulously fun and relaxing summer and are feeling rejuvenated for the new school year. My summer was restful yet super busy...if that makes sense. I am so excited to be back at the same family of schools, and I am really looking forward to all the new learning that we can do together again this year!

Google Apps for Education

I have been using Google and GMail since university (and only scratching the surface)

...so I have made it my mission this year to uncover the power of GAFE in a way that makes our job in the classroom easier. If you want to explore GMail, Google Classroom, or cool Chrome Apps, Extensions & Add-ons - lets do it together, two brains are better than one!

...you do not need to have the book to do a "Number Talk" (click on title for more info)

Number talks engages students in “mental math” through grappling with interesting mathematics problems. Educators can use number talks regularly as introductions to the day’s mathematical practice, as “warm ups” for other lessons, or as stand-alone extended engagements with mathematical concepts. The teachers in these videos are from schools participating in the Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative.
