Carnival time again

Happy Thanksgiving!

I feel we all can find lots of things to be thankful for... to start with, just to have LIFE is something to be thankful for. But, there are multitudes of other things, as well! I'm sure you can think of those yourself! I'm thankful... for example, to sleep in a warm bed, to see stars at night, for my family, and food (for starters). To celebrate, I want to feature a Thanksgiving activity book that my girls made. You can purchase it at Currclick for $1.95. But, you can also access the Thanksgiving themed activities on this page ! Enjoy! And Happy Thanksgiving!

The value of mistakes

I have written a new article: Growth mindset and the value of mistakes in math learning In a nutshell, I first explain what is brain plasticity -- the huge potential for our brains to grow -- and then what it means for learning of math: EVERY student CAN learn math. Students need to have a growth mindset where they value mistakes and see them as opportunities for brain growth and learning.
