I so enjoied your post. I really like the idea of your mid-week assessment. This gives so much more direction for the students learning. Where I did my student teaching math was taught haphazardly as the teacher drudged through the workbook. Sadly, our CSAP scores clearly reflected our instruction. However, I am excited to teach in my own classroom next year after I complete my MA in education with a specialty in reading and math. The group work you do with your students has inspired me to make math more enjoyable for my kids. I have always been afraid of math myself, but I don’t want to bring vibe this into my classroom.
