Today is Poster

I have a laminated poster that says “Today is.”  Each day, I try and remember to write the date as a math problem.  This is a trick I picked up from my cooperating teacher while I was student teaching.  Students HATE it because it makes them do a bit of extra math to figure out the date.

I love that sometimes when I forget to change the date that students will volunteer to come up with a new math problem for me!

A laminator is a MUST-HAVE for me as a math teacher! I spent my first six years as a teacher at a school with a broken laminator, so I had to find a way to laminate things myself.

I’ve had several laminators over the years. I currently use a Scotch laminator at home and a Swingline laminator at school.

I highly recommend splurging a bit on the actual laminator and buying the cheapest laminating pouches you can find!
