Welcome Leaders of Learners everywhere! We see you. We know how hard you work and how you’re always in search of just the right resource to use with your learners and we want to help! Today is a continuation of a blog series featuring our favorite FREE online educational resources to support you and your learners. Last time, it was language resources ; but today, we’re focusing on math resources. Math is probably the easiest subject to practice in game form. That being the case, there are myriad math game sites out there. We’ve tried a lot of them out and we’re presenting you our favorites. And not just our favorite math game resources, but also our favorite math teaching resources.

So, the first resource will be heaviest on teaching and the last resource will be heaviest on practice.

Victoria was an elder in the eyes of most of the
We are one month into 2021! How are you doing? How are your learners doing? I hope you are taking some time for yourself and reflecting on your emotions, accepting them, understanding them, and making necessary adjustments to nurture more of the outcomes you desire. You are worth it. You are making a difference. You matter. The Mr. recently took a training regarding the mental health of teachers. Many of us are having a difficult time teaching, which is likely unsurprising to you. We’re confronting new challenges for which there is no manual. In the face of these new challenges, it is vital that we care for ourselves. The Happy Teacher Revolution offers resources and training (which the Mr. recently underwent) to support us in doing so. A printout from this training now hangs near his desk to remind him of twelve choices a happy teacher makes (links to the original list at Edutopia ). There are so many good choices. The one that resonates the most with the Mr. right now is “I choo
