Welcome to another addition of The Tuesday 12! Since Lisa, Elita, and I will be working on a TLLP math project this year, we will be using our blog to review useful resources, the progression of our project, challenges to overcome, and successes we achieve.
The following list of resources is on my summer reading list (haha…it seems to be quite an endeavour, but I hope to check off as many as possible). If you’ve read any of these resources or if there are others you can recommend, please leave your comments below!
