Giant Coordinate Plane @ Mrs W's Math-Connection

While doing research for a post on Anchor Charts, I came across a teacher's blog that I just have to share. Katie Widener is a middle school math teacher who started blogging in March of this year. She is young and obviously energetic, and I'm proud to say she is a fellow Tennessee teacher! You can find some great things on her TeachersPayTeacher's store for good prices. I REALLY like her posters, many of which are only $1 for a digital download.

Mrs. W's Math-Connection is her blog, and you NEED to follow it if you also teach math. She posts lots of photos from her classroom, which means you can actually see her ideas in action.

My favorite picture is this one, and I can imagine kiddos in every grade from 3rd up loving to be points on the plane:

I also really like Mrs. W's post about the Pythagorean Theorem (close to my heart as a former Physics teacher) which includes pics of her kids doing an activity, along with a video and cartoons.

Thanks to Katie's colleagues who convinced her to start her blog. Go visit it to see what else you can use with your students!
