Hi all! It’s Math Monday and it has been a good while since my last post about helpful math sites. This time I took on to Pinterest.com to see what other fun ideas I could find and share. Again I am listing 10 links off Pinterest that I found fun, helpful or just plain genius to help kids enjoy math more or to help you with ideas. Most of these Pinterest links also have an additional link to the website from which the picture came from. If you click on the link shared on the Pinterest account they will guide you to their own website where you will be bale to find more of their teaching ideas. Have a look and hope you like these!
