This was my second day of math centers and things are moving smoothly. Today, I had students working through 15 minute rotations.
The first round of rotations:
- My two groups who are working below level were to go through some Khan Academy lessons. To make this an easy process, I assigned the videos/activities that I wanted them to work through on Google Classroom.
- My on level group worked at the teacher table with me. We focused on determining if a number was prime or composite. While we had our 100s chart that made this information easily accessible, I wanted to focus on working with the factors of the numbers. The kids really enjoyed this activity that I found on Teachers Pay Teachers:
- My above level group worked with me to begin a set of Number Sense note cards that will be kept on a ring for easy access. We also went over the activity they had completed yesterday. Finally, we began to work through the first 20 questions on a Number Sense test to determine which topics we should cover.
We spent the remainder of our time working on a math assignment from Algebra Readiness Builders. I really like this resource, it is great review and it gently moves students into new learning. It builds on itself each day.
