    Math Centers: 4 Ways to Do Centers

    Math Centers: 4 Ways to Do Centers

    Do you like a lot of structure in your classroom, or do you prefer to hand the responsibilities over to your students?
    The great thing about math centers is that you get to choose what learning looks like in your classroom.
    That’s right, in this episode, we’re continuing the discussion about math centers.
    I’m explaining why I love centers so much for math and teaching you two important aspects of planning centers: how to rotate your students through different activities and how to group your students.
    It all comes down to choosing structured vs. open rotations and fixed groupings vs. flexible groupings. I’m giving you 4 different ways to run your centers using these options and explaining when and why you might use each one.
    If you want to create more flexibility in your classroom, this is for you.

    Fix Your Math Tests

    Fix Your Math Tests

    Is it time for a math test in your classroom? How do you make sure that your test accurately reflects what your students know? It can be hard to know if you’re asking the right types of questions, marking accurately, and assessing the content that you actually want to be assessing. This can lead to all kinds of problems with tests.  Anyone can write a test, but as teachers, it’s our job to make sure that tests are accurately measuring student achievement.  I’ve spent a lot of time agonizing over what questions to put in a test, how to weigh a test, and how to score a test, and I want to share my results with you so that you don’t have to agonize over your tests too.  If you’re ready to switch up your test-planning process to make sure your students are getting the scores they deserve, tune in to this episode.
