Improper Fractions – Math Song

By | Blog Posts | No Comments

This has one to be one of my favorite videos. I was able to get both of my “mini me’s” to star in the video with me. As a teacher and parent it’s important to share the passion you put into the work with your students with your own children. Teaching is not my job it’s my lifestyle. It doesn’t end when the bell rings that’s for sure!

Music Notes made a big splash at the California Math Council’s Southern California conference last weekend. The booth was packed all weekend and our show at the Friday Night Social was a hit. We’re looking for to new month’s CMC North Conference.

While in Palm Springs, we had the chance to meet a number of educators working to put their own stamp on education. The first was Anthony from Teacherwear. You’ve probably seen one of his pro-education shirts on teachers you know, but you can check out the full Teacherwear line-up at www.teacherwear.com

We also met the terrific group of educators that have put together Singin’ & Signin’. Like Music Notes, Ken, Seigrid, and Steven have worked to come up with an innovative way to use music in the classroom. Stop by www.nickynote.com to learn more about their innovative technique for teaching elementary school students.
