If you have ever worked at more than one school, you know what it is like to leave a must have teaching resource behind because it was purchased by the school. That is exactly what happened to me. My previous school had ordered ETA's Hands-on standards books for 7th and 8th grade math as well as algebra. Well, let me tell you that book became practically my Bible for hands on math lessons. I learned math
Enter this year, I have moved down to third grade and no longer had my book to rely on. I managed to fumble along ok so far, but, then the math Gods intervened, and I was contacted by ETA to review a product. They even let me choose! YES! I knew exactly what I wanted - the 3rd grade edition of my coveted book!
My husband's ear drums were not prepared for the squeals of excitement when the book arrived in the mail. And he was not the only one
One thing that I love is that there are pictures! I am a visual learner, and if I don't see the manipulatives in action, I sometimes don't get it. This book tells you what to say, what questions to ask, how to let the students explore, how to assess. Everything for each and every math standard. I could even leave this for a sub and wouldn't have to worry that they couldn't teach the math the way that I want it to be taught. YEAH! No more boring review worksheets!
You can check out sample pages for the third grade book here.
And now, the best news - I get to giveaway one of these books to one of my lucky readers! Woo Hoo! Trust me - you NEED this book!
