For those using the TI-Nspire GDC for a Maths course I have put together 20 essential skills with the idea of learning one a day, once a week for 20 weeks. https://www.transum.org/Maths/Presentation/?p=9 but this can be used as a quick reference guide too. #IBMaths#mathschat#mathchat#Calculator
🎲🎲 In our first week of school we brushed up on our mental math, number recognition and basic addition skills by playing Yahtzee!
A positive classroom culture is built when students know what is expected of them. Having clear expectations that ALL students understand, helps build a productive work environment. Take the time now, to notice your students working hard in partnerships, gathering materials properly, having organized math notebooks, and celebrate it! Possibly add those snapshots around your classroom! Your students won’t be able to “forget” if they see themselves doing it! Clear expectations now = a successful learning year!
As teachers we are constantly reflecting over our own practices and that mindset is important to instill in our students too! Using this anchor chart to conclude math workshop (either as a turn and talk or free write) allows you to hear how your students are growing as mathematicians!
We talked about the word subitizing with the prompt today. How would you quickly determine how many toothpicks are here without counting them individually? #mathchat#WIM#visualmath#raptorsrock
Looking for a fun activity to teach your students or children the phases of the moon?
This 4 star rated activity has helped classrooms across the world enjoy understanding the changes that happen within the moon phases and our world.
It comes with guidance on how to perform the activity, assemble the yummy Oreos to represent the moon, and comprehension application questions to ensure your students or children have a deep understanding of the material.

Had such an awesome time last night working with these siblings!
I genuinely look forward to every opportunity to teach math to my students. Towards the end of the session, I said "okay we have time for one more problem" and the response was "if we finish quick enough can we solve another one." The growth and confidence I see in my students is tremendous and I am so appreciative to have the opportunity to be a part of it.
Too many students realise this once it is too late... By working with Dorkaid mentors, students get advice, first hand, from students who have recently been in their shoes. Hearing how important education is from someone relatable can be invaluable.
*NEW* Addition Mats are great for students to visually represent addition in a variety of scenarios. ONLY $1 for a limited time. - There is the option to also tell a number story "There were 6 fish in the bowl. They bought 4 more. Now there are 10 fish in the bowl"
- Use these to prompt for addition strategies (such as Friends of 10, count on) rather than count all. - Use with either the counters provided to match each scenario or normal counters.

This month's Featured Author is Saving The Teachers and one of their great resources is Emoji Algebra 😀 😀 😀
Algebra is a word many children dread. These algebra task cards are a fun way for your class to get the basics to algebra problem solving. Simply print, stick the cards around your school, and send them off on their algebra adventure.
These cards can also be a useful addition to your bank of extension activities.
I love how honest students are when they feel safe and supported. We had just finished talking about the importance of owning up to our inadequacies so they could be addressed. We can’t fix something we aren’t willing to admit needing help with! #iTeach4th#mathchat#TeacherLife
