ATTENTION TEACHERS! THIS ONE IS FOR YOU! I have been a home school teacher on and off for a couple of years now. It has been a great experience, and a challenge as well. For me the toughest subject that I dreaded teaching was math (for a number of reasons that I will not get into right now). So as I was scouring the internet, trying to find an easier way to explain regrouping, I ran into this video ...
I said to myself, "that was really fun!" So much fun in fact that we regularly jam on the "regrouping flow" even when we are not doing math. Dr. Stephanie Pasley has done an excellent job in combining math, music, and dance into this fun learning experience that not only impacts students but teachers as well. (I love creative entrepreneurs!) I have found her you tube videos to meet most of our math needs, as her complete program is geared towards school systems. Maybe one day she will offer a home/parent version. Click "The Math Party" or her latest, "The Reading Party",for more information. So TEACHERS & HOME SCHOOL GROUPS! Get in on this! Its really fun, and if your school or group has the funding, her program is a great investment!
