Answering the questions in the back of the book is rarely a fun endeavor for the students, but today that wasn't the case in class! Just adding a little twist really made it exciting for the kids. Let me explain.
Now is when it got fun. I gave the groups a pack of sticky notes. I then asked them to record the one best answer for each question on a sticky note. Then, one representative from each group walked up to the walls, where I had placed "posters" of the questions, and placed the sticky note onto it. This was GREAT because those kids that normally are super antsy when doing textbook work got to get up and move around!
Finally, I took each of the posters down, and we reviewed all of the sticky notes. This served several purposes but the most beneficial one was that the kids heard the answer to the question 6 times! I then wrote the "best" down in my foldable.
Anything fun to share that you did today?
