Terrific Triangles

It's time for triangles in my geometry unit.

I'm using a couple of resources from the Math is Fun site.


Interactive Triangle and Angle makers
You can drag and pull into different  angles and triangles.



Songs are a must too. My students love when I teach concepts through music.

I love when I hear my students (yes, third graders), singing learning songs on their way out to recess or lunch. It shows they were certainly paying attention.

Make Your Dash Matter

Happy New Year!
I'm starting off this new year sharing with you a video link that a dear friend emailed me several years ago.
I remember the inspiration it gave me then and the inspiration it still gives me today.
What will you do to make your Dash matter in 2013?
