Wordless Wednesday: Binders & Seuss Landing!

For this week’s Wordless Wednesday, I have two pictures for you! This past weekend, I went to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure with two of my best friends. We had a blast! The teacher in me definitely came out, because Seuss Landing was one of my favorite areas of the park! It was just SO stinking cute!! I snapped the picture below to share with you. ๐Ÿ™‚
As I am typing this up on Tuesday night, I am e.x.h.a.u.s.t.e.d.
I spent a good part of my day putting together these pretty and colorful math binders.
Inside, are our workbook pages for the first quarter, so that my kids can take out the pages they need easily and quickly, without ripping them. You see over the past four years, we’ve supplemented our math material. This year, however, we have adopted the My Math program. I know that some people are okay with the program and some people are not a fan of it, but the truth is – no program will ever.ever.ever.ever.ever be perfect. The key is to never let the program run YOU. I told myself back in my first year of teaching that I would never let a Teacher Manual of a program control too much of my instruction, as I know my kids better than a manual ever will. ๐Ÿ˜‰  I am blessed that I will have the freedom to supplement material when we need to. 
So…my question to you this week is:
Do you have a district-adopted math program that you use? 
What is it called?
Leave your comment below and/or link up your photo of the week with me! Don’t forget to use the linky button at the top of this post and link back to my blog post.
Happy Wordless Wednesday!

  1. Love the Dr. Seuss picture. Looks like a lot of fun. Our district uses a variety of math materials because like you said no program is perfect. We have access to Motivational Math, Sharon Wells and our textbook adoption materials.

  2. This will be year 3 of My Math for us. It has pros and cons…I follow the order and we do have to do the pages. We of course add stations, lots of games and hands on practice. It is nice to have something to follow, and I think the parents appreciate the homework pages since they are a nice review.

  3. In my district we use enVision Math by Pearson… we are also using NYS Modules that have been released. In all reality we are using different resources to best meet the needs of our kiddos from year to year! Thanks for hosting! Best of luck with the new math curriculum!

  4. I just was at Seussland last week also. I screamed that I wanted to "drop my classroom" into the middle of that book store! Loved it! Loved how our visit inspired each of my kids to continue reading…my oldest–to explore comics and graphic novels, my middle to read Harry Potter (which my oldest has been trying to convince her to do for years), and my youngest to re-visit Dr. Seuss. Love it!!!!
