In my experience conversation flows freely when paired with food.  While I wish I could offer my webinar guests an actual snack, the company and conversation that is bound to occur will be rich and rewarding, I'm sure!   breakfast-690128_960_720.jpg To prepare this session "What's on the Menu?  Bloggin Three Ways" I started by considering that the conversation...
In my classroom, math is organized into three stations. Generally, one is captained by me (A) and is the focus lesson for the day, another (B) is based on pencil and paper review/games/problem solving, and the third (C) is computer based using various websites designed for practice or review, such as www.xtramath.org, www.tenmarks.com, and www.everydaymathonline.com.  This week, station “B”...
