Differentiating in Math Using Computer Games
Rating

While students work on computers, Robert teaches differentiated math lessons in small groups. He explains how using technology helps to free him up for individualized lessons and elaborates on how he uses computer programs that assess learning and guide students through different levels.

Fist to Five Feedback
Rating

Dale Eilers, a 2nd and 3rd grade teacher, shares a strategy for gathering immediate feedback from students. Dale uses Fist to Five feedback, asking students to measure their understanding of content, emotional state or comfort level on a scale of 0 (fist) to 5 (five fingers Đ open hand). Noting that this strategy can be used to assess many things, it is important to define the extremes of the scale (0 and 5) so that feedback is clear and accurate.

Mingle & Count: A Game of Number Sense
Rating

San Diego teacher Barbara McCormick demonstrates a fun, interactive way to help kindergarteners practice their counting skills. She begins by asking students about the rules for the game "Mingle and Count". Students then walk around the classroom saying "mingle, mingle, mingle" until Barbara calls out a number. Once the number is called, students quickly sort themselves into groups of the stated number.She scaffolds by having students count with her and uses the grouping game to foreshadow multiplication. When the number of students in the class cannot be made into an equal number of groups, she engages the students who are "remainders" by having them do something fun and silly like flapping their wings and quacking like a duck.
