Brand-New Blog Kick Off!!

Welcome to our brand-new blog, Adventures in Guided Math! So glad you stopped by! We are two second grade teachers sharing our adventures, and our students' successes, in guided math. It is our hope to learn from and inspire fellow educators as they explore, consider, begin, and/or adventure through guided math themselves.  Ultimately, we want others to know how powerful establishing a guided math framework can be and how empowering it is for the mathematicians in our charge. We would love to have you as a follower and fellow adventurer!

We are offering some FABULOUS giveaways to kick things off!







Enter to win one of the above giveaways!  Electronic items will be delivered via email, and texts will be ordered and sent directly. Good luck!
