I made a significant change last week in my classroom arrangement. I have always had students sitting in groups, always. Normally four students, but occasionally five, depending on class size.
I had to make a few adjustments, but it has been worth it. I have always had buckets on the table with glue, scissors, markers, etc... Now, I have boxes for each pair.
I also use these layouts for my sub plans. I have a copy on my desk and write them in pencil in case I need to make changes.
Okay, I know that's not a real "made it" but I had to share.
Something I have made that I am really proud of, is Math Notes for Parents.
At Open House, I had parents ask about tutoring, for them! They haven't done sixth grade Math in a long time and they want to help their child, but don't know how.
So, I added a link to my school web page called, Math Notes and with each new skill and homework assignment I am adding notes for them. Here are a few I have made. Click on each to download.
Looking forward to making more for the next Monday Made it!
