|The last day of our Restore 360 training|
Last week I participated in two Algebra for All two-day electives, and am pretty sure I found my new 1st day of school activity for this year, Hashi Puzzles! I need to flush it out a little more, but I think it will be awesome.
After two weeks of going to professional learnings, I am looking forward to sleeping in again - I mean, it is still my summer break after all. I have also been working through the Edpuzzle Online Professional Development. I finished Levels 1 & 2 and hope to start Coach & Flipped this week. My principal also reached out to me this past week about helping out during our summer PD during the last week of August. I will be leading the ice breakers during two of the days and a session on parent engagement. The parent engagement session I am fine with, but anyone who knows me, knows I am not the biggest fan of adult ice breakers (insert eye roll here), but after thinking about it, I was able to come up with some ideas that I actually really like. I haven't fully planned them out yet, but hope to incorporate some of my Restore 360 practices, as well as some reflection from the MfA Summer Think a few weeks ago.
|My current summer read|
The reason I decided to post just now though has to do with Khan Academy. Since math teaching and learning goes hand-in-hand, I decided this summer to work through all the 8th grade and Algebra 1 math skills. I have currently reached 81% mastery in 8th grade math and 24% mastery in Algebra 1 and hope to keep up with it and continue to work through Geometry, Algebra 2, Trig, etc as the school year goes on.
Just now, I was working through the Number of Solutions to Equations Challenge which basically
I hope the next four weeks are just as full of relaxing, learning, and growing!
