Transformations in Pre Calc with Pipe Cleaners... Bet I could do something like his in algebra 1 with quadratics.

#### Help Kids, Fantastic Ideas, Help Student, Algebra1, Teacher, Student Visual

#### Help kids to see a function not as a set of points, but as a whole object you can make, remix, and transform. Instead of grapher software, use pipe cleaners for hands-on and minds-on play. More on #YoungCalculus at http://www.naturalmath.com/tag/inspired-by-calculus/

Middle School OCD - Crime Scene observation: spool many ways to work this. Going to do x y coordinates and inferencing skills. Math and La unite

#### Idea, Forensics Science, Student, Science Experiment, Writing Prompts, Crime Scenes, Creative Writing, 5Th Grade, Forensic Science

#### Love this idea not just for school/writing assignments: Scene of the Crime Writing: Set up a fake crime scene. Then have all the children to gather around and examine the scene of the crime. After they have all looked at the crime scene have them return to their desk and tell them to write a story about what they thought happened. This will make some interesting stories, but I would use this in only 4th or 5th grade.

#### Student CSI Writing Prompt: Set up a "crime scene" for students, have them observe the details, and write a prompt based on what they see. Linked website is for forensic science, but concepts may also be applied to ELA. Involves analyzing evidence, drawing inferences, creating mystery/suspense, writing informative text, and logically structuring a sequence of events. (Common Core State Standards: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.1, RL.9-10.5, W.9-10.2, W.9-10.3)

#### Disney Teachers, You KNOW that I LOVE this idea. It aligns perfectly to "Law and Order"...EXTENDED RESPONSE!!!! Set up a 'crime scene'-students draw inferences, writing project, and/or do some related forensic science experiments!!!! Don't let the students forget to "tag" the evidence! This can/should lead to a mock trial, where the evidence is presented! LOVE this idea! ~Pat

#### Surprise students by setting up a crime scene in the classroom...how great would this be for a creative writing prompt?!?!

Identify long term class goals: This is a daily goal so students know objectives and why we are learning what we are learning.

#### Help Kids, Learning Object, Learning Goals, Idea, Class Goals, Student, Learning Target, Daily Goals, I Can Statements

#### In my classroom, I always want my learning target of the day to be displayed. Students know the goal for the lesson and the "I Can" statements. Students know what I am looking for (assessment) and be able to take ownership of their learning of - I can do this or I can't do this yet.

Students track their OWN data and learning/understanding - did this for math last year and the kids really liked tracking their progress

#### Data Binder, Math Data, Data Track, Classroom Data, Student Data, Common Cores, Learning Understands, Learning Coorel, Student Track

#### This is the perfect time of year to start student data tracking if you haven't yet! Research shows that when students track their data, they perform better on high stakes tests. The levels of learning coorelate to Marzano's the Art and Science of Teaching, which my principal loves. Tons of resources to get you started!$

#### Math data binders. Students track their OWN progress!

#### Part of what got me thinking about students tracking their own data... track their OWN data and learning/understanding of the new Common Core!! The levels of learning coorelate to Marzano's the Art and Science of Teaching$.

#### Students track their OWN data and learning/understanding of the new Common Core!! The levels of learning coorelate to Marzano's. Essential for my data binder

#### Students track their OWN data and learning/understanding of the new Common Core!! Each student can have their own & then we use it to create classroom data.
