This time of year (you know… the time of year when kiddos tend to go crazy and teachers are tired) I like to keep things very consistent. I am still introducing new topics, and unfortunately, I don’t have the time to tie everything into the holidays… BUT to save my sanity I keep my lessons and activity formats very similar to one another.
After working with partners it was time to work independently… so my students glued these Polygon flaps into their math spirals. Underneath they simply wrote yes or no 🙂
At the very end of our math black my students wrote a reflection. They answered the question: What is a polygon? I also asked for an example and non-example. This little sweetie went above and beyond my expectations… she explained in detail!
So, my word for the day is: CONSISTENCY! Thankfully they aren’t bored just yet 😉
