Day 20: Setting up for Activities
I “heart” activities in my classes. I truly believe activities give students the opportunity to make their thinking visible, engage in meaningful discussions and provide for making interpersonal connections. But they do take time to find, set up and create. I like to try to laminate the activities so I can use them from year to year.
Here I’m prepping for a matching activity from DfES. (2005). Improving Learning in Mathematics. London: Standards Unit, Teaching and Learning Division.
