It’s Monday. It’s Spring Break. I just got my second COVID vaccination. My husband and I just celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary three days ago. Life is feeling pretty positive at the moment. To bring more joy to this day, I thought it was time to put together a new volume of Monday Must Reads. If you’re new around here, Monday Must Reads is my weekly-ish attempt at capturing the amazing ideas shared by (mostly) math teachers on twitter. I hope you find an inspiring idea or two to use in your own classroom!
