When practicing our reading, we do so with books; when practicing math, we use tools and games. In this video, Karen Shannon explains the tool kits her students will use to practice and learn math. Her unique tool kits are shared by two students and take up less space in the classroom than if each student had their own. If you are setting up your classroom with math tool kits, watch this video to see if this idea would work for you and your students.
In the last minute of the video, Karen teaches her students an important classroom strategy that could transform the way your students interact during whole-group lessons. She calls it Hand on Your Head. Listen in.
