I'm linking up with Holly again from Fourth Grade Flipper for her weekly Tried It Tuesday linky.
This time I'm going to share something that is working in my class. This is my Wonder Wall that I made this summer.
I use it after I teach a new topic. I ask the kiddos what they are still wondering about with the topic or something they learned about the topic. I use this as a group activity. The do a Think-Pair-Share but with the four of them that they are sitting with. I make sure my seating arrangement includes different abilities in each group.
After each member in the group share something about the topic, they have to pick what they want to write on their post it note. Once they agree on what to write, they can write it.
Then we share them all with the class. This is a great way to check understanding of the topic and to see if I need to reteach or expand the lesson.
Go link up with Holly and see some other fantastic ideas!
