I am so excited! My family and I are taking a short vacation to Florida. My mother and father will meet my husband and I down there. It will be Kinley’s (my nine month old daughter) first time to see the ocean. She LOVES to swim in the pool so I hope she loves the ocean. I am sure if nothing else she will find the sand yummy! ; )
I am looking forward to posting next week. I will be going into my classroom and begin setting up. I will be taking plenty of pictures! I have reorganized some of my personal read alouds and will share a cheap way to organize this collection. I share the classroom with another teacher so I will also so set up tips for sharing!
I have a few other things up my sleeve as well. I am currently in the process of writing an eBook about Guided Math for grades 2-4. My plan is for the book to have four sections. The first section will be suggestions and tips for setting up Guided Math, including ideas for getting started and different methods. I am on my third “set up” so I feel I have several suggestions! The second section is games for guided math. These will be games that require little more preparation than print, laminate and cut out. I am trying to make these games differentiated bu difficulty level when possible. The third section is independent math projects. The final section will be worksheets I have created- this will be the smallest section maybe three our four at this point. Right now I think I have around 10-12 games and 8-10 projects (I think, this is off the top of my head since I am not at home using my “home” computer).
I would love to get some feedback. What would YOU want from a book like this? I intend on charging for the book, but I want the cost to be reasonable. How much would you be willing to pay? Does anyone have any feedback?
I look forward to hearing from anyone! Have a great day!
