New page for my blog!
For this new page I am going to list or write about really fantastic resources I use or discover. I find so many great resources on the web and usually pin them to my pin board, but I thought it would be great to include some right here on my blog for future reference and to share with other teachers.
One resource I just started using with my class is Buzz Math. You can get your class or classes a free subscription to the website right now. This website allows students in grades 6, 7, 8 to practice math concepts. The question quality is really great and the questions are based on the common core curriculum. If a student gets an answer wrong the site provides a full explanation and additional problems for practice. My students started using it about 3 weeks ago and love it!! As students complete lessons, they earn gold stars. All results are reported back to the teacher. I am able to assign material to students individually or as a group, check students performance, and write personal messages. My students are so excited we have created a bulletin board to can keep track of their earned stars. I am excited because they are practicing math and having fun too!!
