It’s that time of the unit. Some kiddos are just starting to grasp the basics and need more practice. Some kiddos are getting impatient and rolling their eyes. This is compounded by the fact that many of our new kiddos are still being normed to being students at our school and that the honeymoon period has ended.
We give the kiddos a menu of options to choose from. The default is for most kiddos to start on the same practice one (which both has enough ambiguity to keep it interesting and allows them to keep practicing strong groupwork skills). I wanted to take a photo of one of the kiddos at work and they threw all the graphs into the middle. I’ve also noticed that lots of the kiddos like to staple the little papers we give them together. Go figure.
