#### I'm linking up with Stacia and Amanda at Collaboration Cuties for another Mentor Text Linky! This week, I'll be sharing my favorite Mentor Text for Math: Math Curse by Jon Sciescka and Lane Smith! Amazon This book is a little different than other Math Read Alouds like A Remainder of One and The Greedy Triangle. Rather than introducing one topic, this book shows us all of the math we are surrounded by everyday. It's a GREAT beginning of year read aloud and I think will make a fun read aloud for the end of the year too! The story focuses on a child whose math teacher, Mrs. Fibonacci, tells the class that there are numbers all around. Then the child sees math everywhere! There are fraction problems at lunch, probability while getting dressed, division when it's time to share cupcakes and logic while the parents decide who is right. It's such a fun book with so many opportunities to have your students stop and solve the problems, but beware that the answers are on the back cover! I love this book because its so fun for the reader to act out. As the story evolves, I like to read with a sort of frenetic voice to mimic the character's energy as he is plagued by all the math following him around! The kids get really into it! I also love this book because it is a great way to get your students to think about all of the applications of math they use every single day. When I read this with my students, I have them write their own scenes to add into the book. Without fail, I have students who come to school the next day and want to tell the class about the math they saw when they left school! What book do you use to help you teach math? Be sure to link up with the Collaboration Cuties!

#### I got a crazy idea the other day when I took my daughter to the library. Get ready for it... Math Book Monday! Out of my four daily preps, two of them will be math classes: 5th grade Advanced Math and 6th grade Advanced Math. I'm really a language arts teacher at heart. (This is my first year in 19 years of teaching that I won't have a language arts class.) So, I thought I would bring language arts into math class. I already mentioned that I want to bring writing to math class via Kid Blog. Now, I want to bring reading into it too. Have you ever read Math Curse by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith? This may be the absolutely best math book out there. My question to you is this... What other math books are out there? I'll need about 35 more. A simple question to my Facebook group (Education Bloggers) gave me another idea: How Much is A Million? This Amazon link gives me a few more ideas too. My wife is also urging me to do a longer term read aloud with A Wrinkle in Time, which sounds like a good idea. I think I might try to tackle some L'Engle with my kids. So, can you help me out? What books have you used in your math class? Thanks!

Goal Setting in the Classroom

#### Goal Settings, Setting Goal, Classroom Data Wall, Classroom Management, Student Goal, 3Rd Grade, Classroom Goal

#### Jessica Benjamin 4-24-15 I think its really important for students to set goals rather it be for school or in general. I think its something I would try to do in my classroom. Goal Setting in the Classroom- love this. Students set smart goals, ones the can measure. I even set a goal and reflect on it too. Kids can check in on me and see how I'm achieving my goals as well.

#### Goal Setting in the Classroom- love this. Students set goals they can measure. Teacher should set a goal and reflect on it too. Class can share and support each other in achieving goals. Love this!

#### Goal Setting: Students can set goals for different subjects on coloured Post-It notes. I can set goals for myself too!

#### Goal Setting in the Classroom- love this. Students set goals, ones the can measure. I even set a goal and reflect on it too. Kids can check in on me and see how I'm achieving my goals as well.

#### Goal setting in the classroom is an important aspect of growth and learning. By creating a physical goal setting chart, this allows students to be held accountable for reaching their goals. If I were to integrate this into my classroom, I would make my students do class goals (collaborative tasks) as well as individual tasks! I am also a firm believer that teachers must also set goals, as we should essentially be good role models.

#### Reflections of an Intentional Teacher-Original Post for Student Goal Setting

#### Goal Setting in the Classroom- could set goals for orchestra

#### Set reading goals!

#### In our classroom, each student has a data binder in which they set goals, collect data, and reflect on their work and goals. We call this binder their "STAR" binder. This stands for Students Taking Academic Responsibility. We have done quite a bit of goal setting this year, but I feel that the students are not always focused on reaching their goals. They forget about the goals when they are on a page in their binder and when it is out of sight...it is out of their mind. I saw an idea on twitter and I thought that it may be the perfect solution to our problem. I made this grid and posted it on my wall right by where they line up when we leave the classroom. It is a constant reminder of what their goals are on a daily basis. As with everything that I do in the classroom, I have tweaked this process along the way. As you can see, some students had a couple of post-it notes in their square because they were still working on their old goal. Some students just kept adding post-it notes and never taking down their old goals. Some students were setting very broad goals or goals that were very far out in the future. After taking time to reflect on our goals in class each Friday, the students realized that they needed to narrow the focus of their goals. On Monday when they arrive in the morning, I have them get settled and think about a goal that they want to focus on for the week. I have the students set a SMART goal that they can measure and decide if they have actually reached it come Friday when we reflect. We usually share our goals on Monday during morning meeting and then we reflect on them on Friday during morning meeting or even later in the day. The students are getting much better at writing meaningful SMART goals and really trying to reach them by Friday, if not sooner! I am even setting a SMART goal each week with them and I have found it has helped me reach my goal by having it posted in the classroom for all of my little friends to see! The students will often remind each other of their goals, whether it is an academic or a behavior goal, and they will even update their goal as the week goes on. It is also a great visual reminder for me to let me know what I can be working on with each student during that week. These goals are making us more focused and more accountable as well!

(2015, January 4). Teaching Students to Write About Math [Web log post]. Retrieved from http://www.notsowimpyteacher.com/2015/01/teaching-students-to-write-about-math.html.

#### POSTED: Great suggestions and routines for teaching students to write about their mathematical thinking.

#### Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher: Teaching Students to Write About Math - Writing about their mathematical thinking is a phenomenal way to deepen student understanding of concepts. If a student can write about the steps he used, or how he knows his answer is reasonable- then I know he has fully mastered a skill. This deep understanding of the concept will make more complex problems simpler in the future. A third grader who can explain what 4x7 means is going to do much better at solving 45x72 in the fourth grade because they didn't just show knowledge of a fact- they showed understanding of a concept.
