The remaining Mondays of summer are dwindling! Before I know it, I will be back in my classroom with students. I’ve decided it’s time to get serious about thinking about school things once again. But before I get out the laminator, I decided I should put together a new volume of Monday Must Reads. This is my weekly-ish attempt at capturing the amazing ideas shared by (mostly) math teachers on twitter.

I’ve seen lots of scale copy projects in my years of teaching, but Joey Grabowski‘s idea of enlarging a school logo is a new one to me. Very creative!
