Winter Solstice on December 21!

The Winter Solstice is approaching on December 21! The solstice marks the day with the least daylight hours before our days start getting longer here in the Northern Hemisphere.  It's also a day of celebration for many traditions around the world.

ICYMI: Discussion on using journals with math


In case you missed it, I want to draw your attention to this discussion the the Teaching and Learning Community of Practice. The topic focuses around the connection between math and reading, with great tips about writing and using journals to help students overcome math difficulties.
