Austin's Butterfly: Building Excellence in Student Work - Models, Critique, and Descriptive Feedback"
Jon Smith, or @theipodteacher as I’ve come to know him, caught my attention on Twitter this week. Students in Mr. Smith’s sixth grade classroom at Gibbs Elementary in Ohio’s Canton City Schools just published their own math textbook, released just days ago on iTunes!
Mr. Smith’s entrance into the world of e-book publishing started with his 5th grade special education students whose children’s book The Two Kids & Desert Town has been downloaded from iTunes more than 1300+ times in the U.S. and “across the pond.” The students also wrote Reflections on Our 5th Grade Year as a way to reflect on the highs and lows of their school year and connect with the fourth graders who would be moving up to their classroom."

How and when should I get started with Front Row the first time?
A lot of teachers ask us when they should start using Front Row with their students, and there's one simple answer: whenever you feel that your students could benefit from more targeted independent practice. Front Row is a program that accurately isolates skills and gaps with every student - then it fills the gaps and builds on the strengths, allowing students to grow into extraordinary mathematicians.
