I was excited to discover that the Math in Your Feet blog was recently added to the TeachersFirst website! Here's a description of TeachersFirst, from the site:
TeachersFirst is a free, advertising-free teacher resource web site offered as a service to teachers by The Source for Learning, a non-profit learning and technologies corporation. Our value-added reviews and teacher-friendly site have been helping teachers since 1998, sharing the best of the web and our own original content along with practical implementation ideas and best practices for effective integration of technology as a tool for teaching and learning.
And here's what they had to say about the blog!
Explore and discover math in the world around you using ideas from this creative blog. Based on the author's experiences with her daughter, find and discuss math using everyday items. Discover how to teach multiplication using grids found on the sidewalk, use UNO to teach more or less, make attribute matching games, and much more. Scroll down the page to search by recent post titles or labels such as making math or problem solving. Search for specific topics or keywords using the search bar on the site. Stay up to date with all site activity by subscribing via Twitter, Facebook, or follow by email. Many topics have videos (hosted by YouTube). If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share.
Here's to more kids and their teachers making math!! Yay!
