The Crawfords, as always, have produced a teaching resource that is a must-have! All their insights from the classroom make my job in planning easier and I know that my students will be learning the skills they need in a fun and exciting way! The mathbooking took our small group math to a whole new level. Creating "mathbooks" made math more interesting to my below-level students and they were excited to come to math every day! I will forever be a customer of the Crawfords!
After 10 years of teaching district-adopted curriculum for math, I was feeling bored, uninspired, and limited. I knew the cookie-cutter lessons with black and white answers were not meeting the needs of my diverse class. Enter the Crawfords' Math-tivities book. Suddenly, I had a plethora of ideas and lessons to liven up my math block! Now I use our textbook as a supplement and use the ideas found in this book as part of my main lesson. The kids love it and are always excited to see what we are going to do and learn in math class each day! My administrator is even impressed with the learning going on in my room! Thank you, Yvonne and Brian, for breathing life back into my math instruction!
The Math-tivities are great for warm-ups, review, RTI, and substitute plans. My students love how the lessons incorporate art and math.
A dynamic way of approaching math…meets CCSS Standards while allowing me to differentiate to fit my students’ learning styles.
The teacher directions were very detailed and easy to follow. My students enjoy the creative ways to tackle challenging math problems demanded by the Common Core.
The Crawfords make math crazy fun with their multisensory approach. But watch out! Your students will be begging you to do math before anything else!
