Hey, Blogger, Can You Spare a Time?

We need help!

Do you write an education or family blog? Classroom teacher, math coach, homeschooler, parent, college professor, unschooler — anyone interested in helping kids play around with math?

Please consider volunteering to host the MTaP blog carnival for one month.

We still need a home for the last carnival of 2017.

Or plan ahead: 2018 is wide open.

You choose the month that fits your schedule and decide how much effort you want to put in. Writing the carnival can take a couple of hours for a simple post — or you can spend several days searching out and polishing playful math gems to share.

If you want more information, read the MTaP Math Education Blog Carnival home page.

Then let me know which month you want.
