T.A.C.K. board today!
Today, I gave the class a new addition problem, focused everyone's attention on the T.A.C.K. board and gave them repeated reminders to use it, then let the kiddos get to work. When hands went up to announce, "I'm finished!" I redirected them to the board to check their work and everyone added something to improve their work. Take a look at a couple of these finished problems:
T.A.C.K. board this morning, with students working in partners or small groups to solve problems. I wanted to give them a chance to observe and learn from each other. I told them they were required to check in at the T.A.C.K. board together when they believed they were finished, and did they ever! I loved watching them go up, read each piece, and check in with each other to see whether they'd done everything! Awesome! :)
Another great part of the day was a visit to the classroom by Matt from Save The Salamanders along with some of his slimy salamander friends! The kids loved it! They heard all about salamanders that live in our area, learned about threats to their survival, and got to see some up close! Awesome!
Monster House and ate donated treats. The parents did NOT disappoint!! Awesome!!
