First, just let me say a big THANK YOU to @druinok for beginning #made4math and to all of the generous folks who have openingly shared their classroom ideas, lessons, tips over the past year. I was overwhelmed with how quickly it took off! Still, today, I am amazed at the generosity of this community. I have learned so much and my classroom was definitelh impacted by your awesome ideas!
My share for today was initially a result of a convo with @rachelrosales and @druinok, brainstorming ways to organize reminders for the numerous formative assessment techniques…something simple, at your finger tips.
I loved @druinok’s post today and her Student Engagement Flipchart. Very.Nice. It will definitely be on my to-do list for a future project. However, I am choosing to share a similar idea, just a bit different format. I cut down index cards to fit sports card pages… pack of 10 for $1. I am able to display up to 90 of these reminders ranging from formative assessment techniques to various strategies for student engagement, reflection, etc.
Front side of card has title, with some information…
Back side of cards has description, suggestions, reminders…
I have placed the pages in a small 3 ring binder which can easily hold more pages. Currently, I am trying to include summaries/reminders of techniques I have used or see being easily modified for math class.
Looking forward to learning and sharing more FA techniques with my amazing PLN!!!
