Mountain Math

I was looking at Teacher Tipster video and I came across one of the videos that Mr. Smith talks about his bulletin board. It is a curriculum that review all concepts that are taught in the grade level. You can do it during center time or math. I personally like it for bilingual centers or conceptual refinement. Students are to do it over a week period. They provide all materials for year around. You can change it weekly and have students complete handout. It great so when you begin to teach the concept students are already exposed to it. I think its worth the every penny. You can purchase workbooks, flip chart or bulletin board. I plan to purchase the flip chart because I don't have the space for a bulletin board of that multitude.
Here is the video:

Asking for suggestions

As a bilingual teacher we either have to translate or create our own material. As I started doing this blog to help  other teachers that have come across the same dilemma as I have. I want to ask for people if they have any suggestions on what materials are in need. I might be able to upload stuff I have created or find it for you. Please feel free to leave any comments. I will try the best to provide what is needed.

The Learning Patio

I have come across Bilingual Planet and they have great resources for bilingual or dual language classrooms. They  have another site which is within the family. You pay $1.99 monthly and the resources are incredible. You will be amazed of what you will find. It is worth it. I am not getting any commission for promoting this site. I just want teachers to know that there are materials out there. IF WE STICK TOGETHER WE WILL SUCCEED. I hope you take the time and have a look at it. Believe me you won't have any regrets. I AM IN LOVE WITH ALL THEIR MATERIALS. Oh and by the way all the material is kid friendly. My students are amazed when I show them.
I appreciate if you leave a comment of what you think of the site.....


I feel so bad for not keeping up with my blog. This year has been overwhelming. We have so much things going on at our school. Its just crazy. I will try to keep up and add new materials that I have found. Don't get discourage. Summer is around the corner and I will have plenty of time to add new material.
