Summer Camp–so far

Five days. Five days to spend with about 50 educators thinking, reading, talking, exploring, investigating all things math. IMG_8098

6 grade levels, kindergarten through grade 5

5 days of community and conversation with people who care about how kids learn, who are willing to really think about what needs to happen in classrooms to meet kids where they are in their understanding and move them forward, and who share the joy that comes from figuring something out

4 structures: daily reading selections, math work stations, number routines (counting circles, choral counting, number talks, number strings, strategies from Intentional Talk), and math tasks

3 resources: Intentional Talk by Elham Kazemi and Allison Hintz, Number Talks by Sherry Parrish, and Math Work Stations by Debbie Diller

2 things I noticed: People really like learning, including being challenged and pushed a bit. Enthusiasm for learning is contagious.

1 great friend who gave up 5 days of her summer to spend with me and a fabulous group of educators

    Sounds like your friend traded 5 days for a good time with an enthusiastic group.

    I appreciate the opportunity to work with @JudithKeeney who inspires me to step out of my comfort zone and take risks both professionally and personally. #mtbos
