Establishing Math Routines: Speaking and Listening
I'm _________________________. I'm presenting homework assignment ___________________. I made ____________ choice for practice, and here's how I completed the assignment (and enrichment if completed.)
The presentation lasts about two minutes per child, and each child gets to use the microphone which makes it fun. I assess their speaking and mathematical thinking skill as they present. The first rubric was too intense, so I'll make a new, simple presentation rubric to use--one that I can quickly fill out and send a copy of home with the child. The rubric will be focused on the positive side of learning and also include a student goal for future presentations.
I use a list to make sure that everyone has a chance to present regularly.
