Math is something that gives both students and teachers anxiety. Over the years, it's become something that I love to teach! The fact that there is only one right answer--even though in many cases 'all roads lead to Rome' is HUGE for me as a learner and a leader. I use rubrics to grade for everything and I'm big on setting goals and helping students track their own progress. I have lots of first grade math themed posts, but now that I am in third, more are on the way about how I approach the content for bigger kids. Enjoy!
