October Adventures-Halloween is coming!

This year has been extremely busy, and I am just now able to update my blog.  I hope everyone has had  a smooth transition to the new school year.

Patterning has been my class focus thus far in mathematics.  With Halloween quickly approaching students have really been enjoying practicing their math skills via ghost and goblin activities.

About musingsofamathteacher

I am presently employed at New Sarepta Elementary School as a grade five teacher. During my career I have taught Grades 12 - 2. The past three years I was fortunate to work part-time as Math Lead for my school district, Black Gold Regional Schools, and have just recently accepted a part-time secondment with Edmonton Regional Learning Consortium. I have always had a passion for mathematics and am excited about implementing Alberta's "new" mathematics curriculum.
