Since talking to some of the other teachers at my school about bellwork, some have started implementing it in their own classrooms! I would love to see it become a school-wide expectation in my district.

Notable Bellwork of Late:

I already introduced you to Stan.

I gave my Algebra 1 students a real-life proportion to solve.

I used my students' birthdays in Algebra 2 to determine their bellwork assignment. Interestingly, one of my students couldn't figure out which task she was supposed to do because she was born on the 4th of July... I thought my instructions were pretty clear...

I liked this set-up better than giving students the option of which method to use. I wanted to show students that we would get the same answer either way. |

I like the birthday division for bellwork. I divided the room, left side this, right side that.... But doing it this way, allows the table groups to see both ideas worked through while they work.

ReplyDeleteGreat blog. I noticed that you use labels on your posts, but don't have the labels widget on your sidebar. Adding this widget would help when someone is searching for a particular topic and does not have time to scroll through several posts. Just thought I would mention this to you. Have a great day!

ReplyDeleteThank you so much for the feedback! I fixed it!
