Lesson Planet has given me wonderful ideas for lesson planning and activities to keep the interest and curiosity of my students high. I teach resource and co-teach Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. My students are always an inspiration for me because they try so hard to be just regular kids in math class--they just have to work a lot harder at it! My students in resource math take so much pride in working (and competing) at the level of the "regular" Algebra classes, I love sites like Lesson Planet that help me find new, different, and better ways to present the material so that it is relevant and accessible for my students. It is so good to find quality resources in one place, instead of spending hours scouring the internet for activity ideas. I like the changes you have made already to link to Common Core.
