As 2019 comes to close we just wanted to take a moment and wish happy holidays to all of our readers! The year was full of amazing teaching ideas from all of our contributing writers but the following four blog posts stood out and were our most popular:
1. Elementary teacher Meg Howe blogs about her go-to checklist for getting her classroom ready:
2. Elementary teacher Thomas Dennison vlogs about his favorite “Practice Buddy” feature in enVisionMath and how he uses it to develop his students’ problem-solving skills:
“I love Practice Buddy! They’re working as a partner, but they’re also getting their own grade. Buddies are working together, but buddies are not copying off each other. Brilliance!” 🙌🙌🙌 5th grade teacher Thomas Dennison VLOGS: https://t.co/RTmxUgaron #envisionmath #iteachmath pic.twitter.com/pku1ceIRf9
