(I have to apologize for not many pictures this week. I updated my phone yesterday and had some major issues. I lost all of my current photos including the pictures for this post!! It made me very sad!)
I have found my students love to move around the room while working. I often times will use scavenger hunts during my lessons. This is where students look for cards that have questions on them to answer, they find them, answer them and then move on to find the next one. You can do this for any subject or topic and the kids love it. I hide the cards in fairly easy to find places, never under anything. The students are given simple instructions on what to do and how we behave while wandering around the classroom. Then, I set them off! It is fun to see them helping other students find certain cards. This gives them practice, while not keeping them tied to a chair. My students get excited when they come in and find a few cards. They are then looking frantically to find the rest of them while I am giving instructions.
I have two scavenger hunts in my store right now...one for addition properties and the other for multiplication properties. Check them out or even create your own on the topic you are studying.
I am in a giving mood...Let's play Pin It To Win! Pin either product and leave the link in the comments and I will pick two winners tomorrow night to receive one of these products. You have two chances to win, so pin each one!
I am off to do some grading so I will not have any tomorrow!
