This month, I'm participating in a blog challenge called Blaugust. To see the list of participating blogs, click on the logo above. I would encourage to you please cheer on our participants with either a tweet or a comment on their blog during this month. It can be hard to blog on a daily (or even regular) schedule! :) If you would like to join the blogging challenge, you can still sign-up anytime!
As I sit proctoring a test, I thought now would be a good time to mark some items off the to-do list, including starting a blog post about my classroom for one of my Blaugust posts (see below for more info)
What seems like a yearly occurrence...ugh... I had to move classrooms again. Don't get me wrong, I love teaching where I do, but I really dislike having to take so much down and put it back up. You'll see why here in a second ;-)
So.... here we go on this tour and I hope I am able to give credit to everyone, so if I forget you, please let me know.
Because I ran out of wall space in my classroom, I figured I would commandeer some wall space in the hallway....lol
@joelbezaire and many others in the #MTBoS who have created one.
The Panda Squares is from @davidbutler 's blog and @mathequalslove also has a version you can print out (she credits David as the original source)
Welcome sign from @mathequalslove 's blog; a quote of the week; our Duluth Math Department sign with the lettering inspired by @saravdwerf and her math symbol alphabet.
#MathFail posters that Sara VanDerWerf has on her blog. There were over 50 posters this year, so I only printed a small sampling of them for my wall.
The middle is my version of @misscalcul8 's Not Just Dead White Dudes board she did. The whole idea stems from @anniek_p 's The Mathematician Project to educate about mathematicians who are not always studied or celebrated. I've been doing a Mathematician Monday so far this year, and the students seem to be enjoying it.
A few more posters from @mathequalslove 's blog; #becomingmath posters from @cbellatl; the student area with their supplies, baskets for their notebooks, and games to play and the resident Chromebook cart.
Above each table is the group sign. These were inspired from @saravdwerf but I printed by version from @g_brgmn 's blog post
After having such a wonderful time at #TMC18 and meeting people I have been interacting with on Twitter the last year, I wanted to include them in my photo wall. Definitely a favorite :-)
And lastly just a few more pictures of some of the decor -
Thanks for reading and taking a tour with me of my home away from home :-)
