    1. Thanks, Brittany! I TRY to be organized! ;)

  2. Your newest follower and so glad! I just started up my blog recently and had been seeing this Guided Math button EVERYWHERE! At first I thought, oh darn, too late it already started. But I went ahead and bought the ebook today and I can't put it down! I hope to catch up over the next few days. This is really great!

  5. I just found your blog last week and my graduate school project is on Guided Math! I'm so excited and I ordered the book and just received it today! I can't wait to go through your book study and look everything in detail. Thanks again for doing this! I just started my own blog as well and I am going to post your guided math button on my blog so others can see! Thanks again.

    1. I actually wrote a research paper on guided math in the spring, & this summer, did my action research project on it, too! Feel free to email me if you have any questions I can help with!

  7. It is so great when you have an opportunity to help your children with ther home assignment. When i'm tired, I try to deal with this, as well. Using though online homework help services.

  8. I am excited to follow this! I, too, am considering doing my action research on Guided Math. Brenda, what was your question? I am struggling to figure out exactly where I want my research to go.


    1. Hi, Morgan! My question was actually looking at the validity of an online book study as effective professional development.....which, it was!
      Good luck with your action research!
