Today as our first round of math mania.
Students rotated through 4 stations, which included:
- problem solving multiplication equations using math tiles.
- applying the concrete, pictorial, abstract process and showing evidence and of thinking in their math journals.
- modeling multiplication equations by building representations with base ten blocks.
- collaboratively constructing our puzzle of the Taj Mahal.
This STRUCTURE allowed scholars to really apply their thinking, communication, and self-management skills during each of the 30-minute stations.
At one point, Ms. Paula popped in. Pleased with the progress on our puzzle, she climbed on top of some desks to get a tweetable picture.
Can’t see the Taj Mahal yet…but I am observing the #collaboration as G4 @TASOKinshasa with @lesleerupp develop new #strategies to sort and work through their 1000 pieces of jigsaw puzzle! pic.twitter.com/XBjwKO1Gsz

Once again today, Ben brought in some samples of his rock and mineral collection. Rather than passing samples around the circle, he opted to share using the document camera and big screen. Very professional!
