Think Tank...on Monday put a question for the students to answer. They will then write their answer on a fish and staple it to the board. On Fridays go thru the fish and place the ones who correctly answered the questions in the fish bowl. Draw five every couple of weeks and give those students a reward. Works as a great assessment tool to see how the students are doing with various concepts! Maybe a a trivia contest in the library?? |Pinned from PinTo for iPad|

Teaching Students How to Justify Answers in Math

Teaching students to justify their work in math doesn't have to be difficult. Read this post to learn how setting clear expectations and explicitly teaching students can make a huge difference.

Beginning a class or school year with this question would serve as a basis for teaching the specific students. Keeping this board up all year would also serve as a reminder to the importance of art. Also, allowing students to read what their peers have written might create critical thinking that they did not initially think of.

Holy cow, 271 pages of Post-it activities for teachers. This might be a pin now, read later. This is a cheap, easy way to get students up and moving while still learning and it gets them thinking of different types of questions to ask.
