Literacy is the foundation for all learning.
“Through literacy you can begin to see the universe. Through music you can reach anybody. Between the two there is you, unstoppable.”
- Grace Slick
I love this idea, I just have to figure out how to apply it in math. Maybe when learning a new concept, kids could "sum it up" for someone who is absent? Any thoughts?
Oh, good question. I noticed that the site I linked included a Sum It Up Closure strategy which I think works for all of us. It's one of the red hyperlinks down further on the page. Good luck! Or how about a chapter Sum It Up? Whole Group?
Activities like these lend themselves to the use of Google Docs quite well in the older grades. Collaboration, real time editing, and teacher conferencing.
I am wondering if we couldn't use this as a strategy to review for our chapter assessment? I think I found something, maybe you can look it over with me J?
Maybe we'll have a few minutes at PLC?
