    Greetings! I’m Robin, and I currently teach Grade 7 homeroom, including math.  I have been working on spiraling my curriculum this year with (I hope) some success.

    Hi Robin! Welcome! I just joined earlier today =)

    This email popped up just as I’m working on spiraling my Integrated 1 (algebra and geometry) math curriculum for the first time.

    I’d love to hear any tips from what you’ve learned that you’d have for a first-timer!

    Good to hear from you! It all got started for me when I discovered Kyle’s Tap into Teen Minds website. If you haven’t,  definitely check it out. He has links to spiraling resources, but I have been looking around here and I believe I saw a mini-course on this topic.

    Best advice? Keep talking and sharing. It’s tough to do alone. (I’ve tried, and now I’m here!) 😊👍

    It sounds like we had similar experiences! I discovered the concept of spiraling through the Make Math Moments that Matter workshop. I think that’s great advice and one of the reasons I joined this community—to find others working on the same ideas.

    I’m so happy you both found each other in the community.

    @RobinDubiel@Jon and I just had the pleasure of chatting with @michaelrubin last night as we recorded a “Math Mentoring Moment” episode for the podcast and he is “ALL IN” on spiralling and has some great thinking going on in that area.

    I think you will both learn a ton from each other!! Maybe add this to your learning logs?

    Hello there! I too am looking into spiralling for the upcoming year. I teach 4th grade and am looking forward to what everyone comes up with through the Academy!

    Hi Robin.  I currently teach 6-8 grade math and we use a Singapore Math Book.  I am wanting/trying to spiral also.  Glad to have all these comrades wanting to spiral also.
