Back to School!

Reflection

So on Mondays, I figured to keep the post to some educational items, especially if I can reflect on some of the goals I set for last week. Just to recap:

1) Become a visual math teacher!

2) More concepts, less procedural!

3) Patience and Consistency

I will say that today, during the Math period, I definitely addressed the idea of “conceptual” and “procedural.”  However, I believe I’ll continue doing that throughout the course of the school year.

I’ll also say that today was rather fun.  I was working off of 3 – 4 hours of sleep so maybe that had something to do with my desperate and wandering style today.  One student even asked “Mr. D, are you talking to yourself?”  Anyway, this was, perhaps, the best the class has been since we started school.  I enjoyed myself immensely in the classroom today and it definitely rubbed off on the kiddos as well.

I think for this week, especially during the Math period, I’ll continue with the conceptual and procedural discussion with the students.

Or force myself to sleep only 3 – 4 hours a day.  That’s sure to work out better . . .

Resources

One place I’m finding myself going to more and more is illustrativemathematics.org. If you’re looking for a decent Common Core (still don’t know what to think about the Common Core sometimes.  I’ll save this for a later post) resource for Math, I definitely like this one.
