I don’t know about you, but some days go A LOT better than others. Today was one of those really good days.
Before school, I arranged my desks in groups of mostly threes and a couple of twos, so that I had ten groups. After going over how to solve exponential equations (of which most of them got, but I could tell some of them were just almost there), I handed out the recording sheet to a product I made yesterday. I then placed one of the ten problem cards on each of the groups. Students were to work the problems on their card and then move about the room working the rest of the problems.
I don’t generally mind if there is a little bit of off topic conversation, but I did have to monitor quite a bit. It was great seeing students work with each other, explaining how to work some of the problems. With about five minutes left before the bell rang, I gave the students the answers. I love that this requires students to get up and move about the room. Of course, most of them gripe and complain, but I guarantee they like it better than just sitting at a desk doing worksheets.
I made this product with cute Valentine’s products I bought from Ron Leishman and super cute fonts by KG Fonts. The product is for sale in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. Click here or on the image below to go check it out!!
