MS Sunday Funday Blog postings
Earlier this week, Julie Reulbach (@jreulbach) posted a survey looking for middle school educators who wanted to connect. (Here is the link to her blog with the survey). She had an amazing response to her survey with over 80 middle school math teachers responding. (link to her blog showing the results of the survey.) Out of that came some good discussion on twitter with Julie, @4mulafun, @Borschtwithanna, myself and others. We decided on the heels of the increasing popular #made4math Monday blogs, that we would add a new middle school math blog day. After much discussion, we decided on Sunday to be the day to post blogs (largely because we wanted to use the name MS Sunday Funday for the blogs!) The goal is to get as many middle school math teachers blogging and sharing ideas as possible with a common blog theme each week. We decided to come up with a couple topics to start off with (first day activities, how you set up your math notebooks) and then we are going to go with a survey to get weekly ideas. Here is a link to the survey for new topics. The first blog post will this Sunday with the topic being "What do you do on your first day of school?" (of course, you don't have to wait until Sunday to publish your posts) Once you are done, tweet the link to Julie, @jreulbach so she can make a running list. Please consider joining us even if you are not a math teacher. Here is a link to the list of future topics that will be published in advance. Julie has also provided a link to a spot on the MS Math wiki for those people who do not have a blog but would like to add a post. Looking forward to some great sharing!
