Our 4th graders put on a play for the entire elementary school this afternoon, so our class time was shortened. I used this as an opportunity to do a little catch up.
We spent the next 30 minutes working on TTM. "Think Through Math helps students in Texas grades 3 and above develop higher order thinking and problem-solving skills, preparing them for success on the STAAR exam, as well as a smooth transition to college or a career."
We spent on final 10 minutes working on our TTM avatar and/or redeeming the points earned this week. This is a powerful part of the week. The kids look forward to this "treat" and work hard for me during the week when they know I will make sure time is given.
