If you had problems, your students are actively engaged in the math exam, here are seven ideas that you can immediately put to use in your classroom to inspire success.
A. Associate yourself. One way to get students excited for the actuarial valuation is a partner mathematical work together to solve what you create is assigned to them. A careful examination of behavior and compatibility must be considered in order to interact effectively partner. It is also important to learn how partners should interact with each other, and what they should do, or if they do not come with different answers.
The second activity center. If you have centers in your room, you can create a “Math Review” where students go and check special problems of mathematical concepts, or whatever you want to develop. Again, make sure students know the procedure, how the heart works and what to do if / when they complete the activity early.
Third bag orders. Students will find a bag of fascinating items. Developed a variety of activities and be in a “pocket”. You can simply get a paper or plastic bag or pleasure and make / decorate your own. Depending on what you want to check the level you work, or you can run your business pocket. For example, if you work with the multiplication, you can color greeting cards, color with the problem of a different color response. Students are then each card corresponds with the correct answer to solve problems on paper. Therefore, the interior of this bag you may have small decorative paper, colored pencils, greeting cards, a timer if you want to work for a while, and everything that you think is relevant or useful.
4th Create-Your-Own problems. Ask students to their own problems for their partners or dinner companions solve. For example, if you are working on two digit multiplication, each student should create five / ten problems and exchange with their neighbors to solve the problem alternately. You can verify that they have other answers. Make it a game. Receiving 5 or 10 wins right.
Complete the fifth problem. You start from a problem and the students have completed and it solves. For example, -4 + ___ =? or 345X__ =? Even if the student can act on them with someone to verify their accuracy, they are then directed to work more carefully, because they want to get the right answer.
Sixth games online. If your students have access to computers, laptops or tablets (eg, iPads), you can literally thousands of free games math mathematics standards all you want to check. Do a quick search on the internet will list a number of options. For example, typing “multiplication games online” Google is a great variety of fun, entertainment, games and flash cards exotic rays can really excites you about your students’ math test.
Seventh games. There are a variety of games or games of paper printed, check all mathematics standards you want. Sometimes, your score will chair / colleagues have games in mathematics are likely to borrow, ask if you want (and I promise you, take care and return). You can also use your school’s Title 1 coordinator or responsible for ordering / maintaining school supplies check / books / equipment.
Hopefully these ideas have your wheels turning about the possibilities for you and your students. With such activities, breaks the monotony of the traditional teaching method allows students to have fun while at the same time check material mathematics. Remember, however, the importance of explicitly teach students how to use / play with a specific activity first, so they are not confused.
