The Hard Truth About Math Centers
One of my followers sent me this thoughtful review recently, and I knew I had to share it! I asked permission. The reviewer agreed, but asked to be anonymous. And I can understand why. Math centers are a huge trend….and unfortunately, a huge amount of work. Now, that is Sadsville.
This is what she said. You can read her own words on each photo. The thoughts between the photos are all mine!
Do you feel her pain? Literally and figuratively? I cut and cut. And then cut and cut some more!
And then, this happened. Every ding danged time! My blood (finger cut!), sweat, and tears scattered and now mixed together all over the floor. Bleck!
Yahoo for lamination!
Wasn’t that the most thoughtful feedback? I was so touched. If these look like something you can use, I have started a seasonal set of these. Right now I have February/ March available. I will be working on the next set soon!
I also have them available by content area.
