Different class did Sara VanDerWerf’s 100 numbers group work task today. Love the energy!
Working on Sara VanDerWerf’s 100 numbers group work task during Extended Learning Time today. Only intended to do two rounds, but everyone insisted on a third! Awesome collaboration from my awesome students!
I forgot to get a picture today! Fortunately, I took pictures of my randomized seats for each class period. This was the first Monday of the school year, so it was the first time I randomized the seats. Although students weren’t exactly thrilled, it went mostly okay. I know a lot of people like to do random grouping daily, but I prefer to give my students a consistent group for an entire week. I think it helps build relationships, and it forces them to engage with their group members rather than just waiting for a “better” group the next day. It worked for me last year. Here’s to another good year of random groups!
Working on the handshake problem at the end of a great first week.
