So, we had our district-wide staff development day today, and we learned more about our new math curriculum and our new Investigations math textbooks. Our afternoon presenter (yikes…can’t remember her name!) showed us how to make these clever folders. I think of it more as a little wallet. Either way, I thought it was neat, …
