Happy Saturday everyone! What have you got planned for this weekend? 🌿
30 ➡️ will be the total of all of the HIDDEN sides. ✨ I showed my class this dice trick on Monday, and it took 5 days for a group of them to figure out how it works - but they did, and they were proud! A university professor of mine showed us this activity, and was a big supporter of the importance of math tricks, puzzles, and challenges to engage students. Next step, they’ll be searching and practicing their own card 🃏or dice 🎲 trick, and creating a 6 frame comic to explain the concept. ➡️ Pictures to come, next week! (Curious how it works? All opposite sides on a die add up to 7. When you stack 5, the total value of the HIDDEN sides will be 35(7x5) minus the number on top that you see! ➡️ my class impressed me though by finding a different solution! They figured out that all opposite sides equal 7. Then they knew that the HIDDEN sides of the 4 lower die added up to 28(4x7), and then they added whatever they knew was the number opposite from the number that was showing. For example in this case, 28+2=30!) (if a 4 were the number you saw on top, the HIDDEN sides total would be 35-4=31. If you saw a 2 revealed on top, the HIDDEN sides value would be 35-2=33.) 🧠 💡 #iteachmath

On my way to the lawyers office this morning I put my hand into an unused pocket of my coat and felt this.
Hair beads were pretty popular amongst my students last year and I knew immediately who it belonged to.
I remember the scratches she left on my neck because she wouldn't let me go in the afternoons when it was time to walk home.
I remember the emails I received advising I shouldn't care about my students so much.
I remember the sleepless nights I had worrying about not just her, but all of them.
I remember feeling like this wasn't what I signed up for.
This couldn't be it.
Total full circle moment as I'm sitting here waiting for some fancy guy in a suit to ask me how my part-time health and fitness journey turned into a projected six-figure business in a little over a year.
When I started this business while teaching I really didn't know the potential behind what could happen
but...it did give me HOPE.💕 My oh my, how I wish more than anything that all of you realize you are also never stuck in your current reality. #neversaynever
There is always HOPE.
Have you ever wondered what Winnie the Pooh would look like if he made it to Hong Kong? Well wonder no more! Here he is taking in the luscious greens of the Chi Lian Nunnery at Diamond Hill 🌿 Today, 18th January, is creator A.A. Milne's birthday📝

We’re jumping from ✖️multiplication into ➗division, and today, all the manipulatives came out! These concepts can be so abstract, so being able to tangibly make groups and share objects was so helpful for them today. Since we discussed opposite operations, this student even made the connection to use our multiplication bookmarks to check her work! 😍
The Summer Academy is also on YouTube! It's the best place to enjoy highlight videos from previous years, as well as the movies that our students write and produce themselves! 🎞📽 Check us out at tinyurl.com/y9o2b7xc
