Erin (comment #27),
You asked how I became a Scholastic Advisor. Another teacher who worked for Scholastic actually gave my current boss a link to my website. She checked it out, liked what I was doing in my classroom, and asked me to start writing weekly blogs for the Scholastic website. This is now my 4th year working for Scholastic, and it is an honor to work for such a great company!
You also asked about Mountain Math/Math on the Water. After modeling how to teach a lesson for the first month of school, we then hand the reins to our students and allow them to plan and teach the lesson each day. It takes place during the first 10 minutes before Math Workshop.
I hope I have answered your questions! Thanks so much for reading my blog this year!
