Minds on Math Book Study-Blog Post Schedule

Thanks everyone for the great response to the upcoming book study.  We will start this coming Saturday 6/29 so we can jump right in and get going.  I know some of you head back to school at the end of July.  Lucky me, I won't be going back until the last week in August.  I wanted to get the book study started so we can finish up in the beginning of August.  We will be posting two chapters per week, on Tuesday and Saturday, that way each post will be devoted to a specific chapter in the book.  You can certainly jump in and post on previous chapters at anytime so don't feel like you can't join in if you don't have your book yet.  Just start posting as soon as you get it.  I will be attempting to have us all link up together (another new thing I am trying so if anyone wants to help me with that let me know).

If any of you have experience with making a blog button please contact me.  I have a button on my sidebar for this book study, where you can paste in code, but for some reason if you click on the button itself if does nothing.  I was able to upload a clickable button, but could not get the text code to copy below it.  If any of you could assist me in getting a clickable button that would have the text code pasted below I would be extremely grateful.  The button is all made, I just am having HTML issues getting it to function the way I want it.  I am a little out of my comfort zone when dealing with HTML. 

The way the book study will work is every Sat and Tues I will post about the assigned chapter with some possible discussion questions for you to think about as you post.  You are free to post about anything you want related to the chapter.  If you have any related stories or classroom experience that would be great.  Everyone will link up their blog posts and then we can read each other's posts and share comments.

More details will be coming about a twitter chat related to our book study.  Please let me know the best day/time for you to do a chat if you are interested.  If you are not currently on twitter it is very easy to sign up.  My twitter id is @luvbcd so feel free to contact me with any questions about the book study or thoughts about the chat.

Thanks everyone for being so will to dive in and join the first book study I am hosting.  I look forward to collaborating with all of you!

    This sounds great. I ordered my book and it should arrive by Friday.. so I guess I know what book I'm taking to the softball tournament this weekend! :) I'm really hoping this will give some practical insight. I would love to attempt this in my room this Fall!
