As the content this year has grown more difficult, I'm starting to see a few more students start to struggle, so I figured it was time to revisit the idea of "sense making" and perseverance. Together we reviewed what this means and generated the following list.
I have it posted at the front of the room and we will be referring to it often as we tackle our next units! I have several other posts about perseverance that explains some things in more detail if you are interested...it is such an important life skill--and is NOT just applicable to math!
Click here to read a post from November about perseverance...and another post here if you want to see a little bit more and yet one more from my guest post over at Minds in Bloom by clicking here! (You can even grab a freebie at that last one!)
So as you tackle your math instruction for this next week, find ways to challenge your students--but give them some tools along the way so they can be successful. Thanks for stopping by!
