Valentine's Day Hop! Five Things I Love About Teaching

Welcome to this stop on our wonderful "Feeling the Love" blog hop!

What do I love about teaching?
1) I truly love helping students to learn! This may seem like a very obvious statement from a teacher, but I'm thinking particularly about those students who may have a little more difficulty understanding a concept and need some extra time to work with me. When we spend that time and that student really "gets" what we've been working on, I can see it in his or her eyes, and I know that they are starting to really understand. Those moments make me so grateful that I have had unlimited opportunities to help children learn over the past 23 years.
2) I love to observe students' "written" thinking. Seeing the way they express their thinking in writing helps me to understand their thought processes. It also helps my brain generate ideas!
3) I love to listen to students' conversations when they are trying to solve problems. It's so interesting to hear the different ways they express their thinking!
4) I love observing the way students can help one another understand concepts!

5) I love creating materials that present concepts in different ways. The freebie on this page is a fold it up that I just created to help students understand the way the ladder method can help them find GCF and LCM, and can help them to factor expressions as well! This will be added to our Fold It Up book:)











Thanks for reading and enjoy the blog hop!

  2. I love cross-curriculum activities because they show students that their classes do connect and are not stand alone islands. The fact that your classes combine math and writing is awesome.

    Happy Teaching,
