The countdown to spring is on! This is the time of year that I can't wait to get outside and dig in the dirt. I also like to re-commit myself to professional reading because it motivates me to be my best as the school year comes to a close. I have not done much professional reading since finishing up the Number Talks books study and I can't wait to dig into a few more good books. With the emphasis this time of year on standardized testing, I wanted to pick something to keep teachers minds off of testing. I have done some exploring with math play and am interested in reading more about play based learning. So I have decided for my next book study, I will be digging into Mathematics Through Play in the Early Years.
Each Sunday, I will be posting my thoughts about a few of the chapters and I would love to have you join me. You can participate by leaving a comment here or writing your own blog post and linking it in the comments section.
