Purdue University ROCKS!!! There is no denying that fact, but I owe a majority of my teaching knowledge and skills to those I have taught with and those who have ultimately shaped me into the educator that I am today. In Germany I taught in a multi-age primary center with two of the most amazing and dedicated woman I have ever met. Jo-Ann and Lydia are masters in the classroom. I am blessed to have had them as mentors and they are my inspiration. Thank you for making me into the teacher I am today!
One of the great practices we used in the Primary Center was Friday "Math Lab". Every Friday we had parents and student helpers come into our classrooms to assist primary students in math center type activities that were hands on and standards based. Each center covered a different area of math content. It was a genius program and allowed children to be exposed to all areas of math throughout the year. Many math programs only touch on standards here and there. Math Lab allowed for full exposure year round.
I currently just made new math labels for "math lab" or math centers. I also made a recording sheet to accompany the labels which can be used for teacher comments or for teachers to initial as students complete a center. You can see them here and grab them up at my TPT store.
I am super excited to use these labels in my room! I hope you like them. Enjoy your evening friends!
