Sunshine Disco Math
Our county has a program called Sunshine Math. There are lessons weekly that include graphs, word problems, and thinking puzzles. Each problem is rated with stars to show level of difficulty. Usually teachers send it home as an enrichment activity. A good buddy of mine used to have Sunshine Disco Math each week, love ya Ms. Twyman! As a class we read the problems and names are selected to help do the work on the ActivBoard. After each problem we have 30 seconds of free dance music to celebrate. The kids LOVE it! Check out the picture. Shouldn't math be this fun all the time?
My name is Jeanne Wright and this is my 22nd year teaching in Volusia County, Florida. I am honored to be the 2009 Volusia County Teacher of the Year. That year I was also one of five finalists for the Florida Teacher of the Year. I am National Board Certified since 1999 in Early Childhood Generalist. I look forward to a wonderful year with my first graders!
