Math & Reading Add Up

40336554_614Great book for teachers of math or reading! Just a quick tidbit that my students really utilized this year whenever they read non-fiction. Thieves…what do thieves get when they break in? The most important things. What should we as readers extract from the text? See the connection? Here is a brief explanation for the acrostic:

T-title is vital

H-headings and subheadings

I-introduction

E-every first sentence, or for math-examples

V-visuals and vocabulary

E-essential questions

S-summary

This school year flew by! What a blessing it is was (sniff, sniff) to teach such eager learners! It seems like just yesterday I was learning their names and in a flash we’re saying fond farewells. My prayer is that I’ve ignited a passion for learning that will follow them throughout their lives. It is not about a score on a test or a label. It is about determination and drive to make their dreams come true and make the world a better place!
