Teaching since Fall 2001 – 3rd year in 2nd grade

First Day Back

I had one student withdraw over the break. The other 15 were here with bells on.  I changed the way we did math.  Rather than have the students on the carpet. They are staying at their desks. The reason was I had some cool ideas and kept running into – but that is going to be hard/impossible to do on the carpet.  With the students at their desks, they can work together and have a surface for their manipulatives and to write/solve problems.

I think this will keep them more engaged in the activities. Also I can walk around an see what they are doing. They enjoy writing on their desks with dry erase markers.

    I love writing on the desks too but I worry that they are not going to use test taking strategies when they take their tests. I try to write both with dry erase and paper to keep everyone happy!
