Back to rotations… here is a lovely visual of how they flow. I tried to snap as many pictures as I could before and after school to help you see the setup.
Blue Table: Teacher Time (taught new skills)
Black Table: Math Journals (guided practice with newly learned material)
Yellow Table: Technology (math websites)
Red Table: Independent Work Binders (mastered skills)
Green Table: File Folder Tasks (mastered skills)
At my station, students learned new material. I always try to use a ton of hands-on and engaging activities (that I typically get from Pinterest) to keep my students’ interest’s peaked and to keep their brains alert.
