Going into the actual classroom today was a bit overwhelming! I was ostensibly there to help find a book for a new teacher friend of mine. I couldn't find the book, Marcy Cook's Math Starters and Stumpers. I use some of the ideas to make posters and she wanted to do this in her classroom. I put posters around the room and students can solve them when they are wondering what to do. I have the students put answers on a sticky note and if no other student challenges an answer, the solver gets credited with the solution. I ended up reordering the book, which I had originally tabbed quite nicely, and ordering the More Math Starters and Stumpers as well. At $15.00 a pop, they are a great resource. I hope they arrive soon.
