Every once in awhile, it’s nice to take a break from the day to day math lesson and do a family math project. Math projects fit nicely at the end of a unit. And if you are teaching family math style, everyone will reach that point together. Even if you are not having your daily lessons together, you can still take advantage of the many benefits of working together on family math projects.

When you are learning a new skill, do you do it perfectly the very first time? Do you know all the answers before you even begin? Of course not! The same is true of math. Learning math requires practice, and making mistakes is part of the process. But as I've shared before, making mistakes in math is a good thing, and can help kids learn and understand more deeply. Today I want to dive a little deeper, because all mistakes are not equal. There Keep Reading...

## Which Number Doesn’t Belong? Math Challenge

I love providing my kids with unique math challenges. Sometimes this means logic puzzles, sometimes mental math challenges, and sometimes it means applying math to their current interests. I want to encourage a love for the beauty of math, as well as challenge them to think deeply about what they're learning.

## Brilliant Ways to Teach Math with Sticky Notes

Back to school season is upon us, and that means one very important thing: back to school sales. I am a huge school supply junkie and get so excited about the deals this time of year! Even though I'm no longer teaching in the classroom, I still stock up on things like pencils, paper, notebooks, sharpie markers, etc. But one of my favorite supplies? Sticky notes.

## How to Raise Logical Thinkers and Why it Matters

Have you ever seen the show, The Office? Well, there's an episode in which one of the main characters, Michael Scott, is driving according to the directions given on his GPS. At one point, the GPS instructs him to turn right. Rather than following the road as it bends to the right, rather than watching the map that shows the slight right, rather than applying any sort of logic at all, he turns immediately to the right and drives his car into a Keep Reading...

## Fun Ways to Engage in Math Learning this Summer

While there are probably endless images and activities that come to mind when you think of summer, I'm willing to bet that doing math just isn't one of them. But the truth is, for most students, summer is a time when all the important math skills they worked so hard to learn throughout the year are completely lost. So here are some SUPER Keep Reading...

## Sidewalk Chalk Jumping Maze Math Challenge

After buying a huge box of sidewalk chalk (like, the second the weather showed signs of warming up), I began brainstorming ways to use it for outdoor learning. Obviously, my kids use it to draw and create, but I also love using it for math games and fun challenges. Especially if it means getting my kids moving while increasing their math skills. ;) We had so much fun with our Skip Counting Hopscotch, I decided to set up what is called a Jumping Keep Reading...

## Pattern Block Puzzles {FREE}

I always have tons of ideas for activities and games to make math fun for my kids, but let's be honest. Sometimes I'm more excited about the activity than they are, and it turns into a huge flop. Recently, however, I created what I thought was a super simple resource to work on shapes and logic, and was blown away by the response from my kids. To the point that they are begging me to make more! I would definitely call that a win, and today I'm Keep Reading...
