2015-16 will be my sixth year as a fifth grade teacher in the Austin, Texas area. This year I am launching into blogging as part of a Math collaborative cohort, Math Rocks. My personal goal this year is to explore how students and teachers can use imagination in the math to drive curiousity and become more powerful problem solvers. My classroom was fortunate to became a one-to-one device classroom last year as part of a technology pilot in our district. Each student has access to a Samsung Galaxy tablet and I am hoping to combine technology with new strategies to make this year’s math instruction the most imaginative and innovative year in my classroom so far.
I am on the lookout for exciting, collaborative strategies to excite my students and build on one another’s imagination in class.
