Welcome to 11 things

This blog is for my 11 things class. I will be documenting my learning as I go along this summer! I am hoping to get it all done while the family is out and about!

I am hoping to blog next school year with my students!

This is my second blog, the first is mylifeshouldbeonrealitytv.blogspot.com. It is about my family and the quirky things that happen to us! And really there are always funny things happening here!

Tool #9

I really liked the TUTpup! I liked being able to compete against kids from all over the world. I think this would be a different way to have the kids practice multiplication and division without it being a worksheet. I wonder if there is some way I could get them to document which ones they played and their score. I think stations only work if you can hold kids accountable otherwise they just waste valuable instructional time.

I was checking out the Study Ladder and I LOVE this idea for use with kids they test out of a certain concept and can move on to differentiate for them. Also used for differentiated homework which is always tough!

My centers are not like rotate to the next one. I have a lot of independent activities and projects that the students move through. I like that I can customize this for students.
