I love personal white boards. They keep students engaged during whole group and small group instruction and allow the teacher to see quickly what students know (or what they need support with).
However, this year our district purchased new materials and manipulatives to use with the Engage NY Math Modules. I am loving these Reusable Dry Erase Pockets that my district purchased from School Specialty. We have been using them the most during whole group math instruction. You can slip a place value chart or number line inside. What a great manipulative and HUGE time saver during our lessons.
Due to my high risk pregnancy, I have been closely monitored these last few weeks with twice a week appointments. I have had weekly ultrasounds since 32 weeks (Monday I hit 34) but sweet baby Natalie has continually hidden her face from the camera. Until Monday....my birthday! She decided to give me a wonderful birthday surprise and peeked out for a brief moment. Just long enough for the ultrasound tech to snap a picture of her adorable face before she squirmed away.
Only a few more weeks until I get to meet her. October is sure to be an exciting month! Link up with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade for more Currently fun.
