Happy Monday! It’s the first day of Thanksgiving Break for me, so it’s an extra happy Monday. So far today, I’ve used my extra time off to work on cleaning out our garage, hang up some Christmas decorations, get my booster shot, and write this blog post. I know I live an exciting life.
If you’re new around here, welcome! Monday Must Reads is my weekly-ish attempt at capturing the brilliant ideas shared by other (mostly) math teachers on twitter. I enjoy highlighting these ideas that I want to hopefully someday use in my own classroom. Hopefully you can find an idea or two worth trying yourself!
