Teaching (Elementary Aged Learners)
My students thoroughly enjoyed this project. It is based on the Math Investigations materials. Using Voice Threads gave my students the opportunity to explain their mathematical thinking in a real way, to a public audience, and it was made at the same time we were learning the material. Parents were also excited to hear about his or her child's learning. This was a great way to generalize our thinking beyond the four walls of our classroom. I was tickled with how important it was for students to hear from the reading teacher and the principal!

I use my time to spoil my niece rotten. Here's some of the songs we learned together. I can't believe how far she has come!

Just a glimpse into some of my travels.
