What are you interested in blogging (or learning) about? Please fill out the form below to help generate ideas for future Sunday Funday blog posts! I would love to include High School in addition to Middle School bloggers. There are many topic overlaps so this is a great idea (thanks Reilly)!
I’ve had some new ideas lately. One of the things I would like to explore is posting our creative lessons around a topic or even a software program. For instance, one week we could post lessons where we used Desmos , Geogebra, or another favorite software. One week we could all post how we teach solving one-step equations (or any other topic). We could post about success we have had using lessons currently available on the internet, like from Dan Meyer’s 3-acts or Mathalicious.
We could also take on challenges, like creating our own 3-acts or creating a new lesson where we used Desmos. We could all create a Virtual Filing Cabinet like Sam’s on our own blogs one week.
Following in the Global Math Format, the first Sunday of each month could be where we post a list of our most recent “Favorites”, whether it be new things we have tried and loved in our classroom or even a collection of blog posts we have enjoyed reading the past month.
I feel that as a “team” we could create some amazing resources. If you like any of these ideas or have new ones, fill out the form and/or throw them in the comments section. Happy Sunday!
Can we expand to all secondary? Not just ms.
Yes! Great idea. I taught high school before middle school so I would love that!
I like the challenge idea. So many things get thrown at us to try from faculty meetings, books, and blogs, it would be fun if several people tried a technique or lesson around the same time and then shared results. That could include technology, a new classroom procedure or lesson format, or whatever.
Great idea! I like the idea of a single topic and then seeing all the different ideas on that topic.
I like the idea of sharing our ideas on teaching a specific topic — we will all learn from this! Great idea — our own PLN right here!
That sounds great! Any topics you all would like to start with? You can put in a list if you want. 🙂
ratios and proportions
surface area & volume
Julie – I love all of the ideas you listed! As a 9th grade algebra teacher I have enjoyed participating in the middle school discussions – our needs, concerns, ideas, curriculum overlap a lot! I especially like to hear how others teach a particular topic or solve a particular classroom problem! Thanks for be the cheerleader/organizer!
I like all of your ideas as well. What if you do a poll on the topics or lessons that teachers struggle with the most? Or the topics of lessons that teachers want to improve? Then those topics can be the topics that are shared about. I also would like to see high school included because I will be teaching Geometry and need all the help and ideas I can get! 🙂
