Self-assessment strategy: students use cards to indicate how they are progressing through independent practice. This allows the teacher to intervene when necessary and gauge students' understanding of concepts.
Thick & Thin questions: great strategy for teaching students that have difficulty with answering questions! I find these thin an thick questions valuable for my grade 2 class. It helps students really think deeply about a topic.
Games for the classroom: FREE Read and retell game. Love this idea to pass the dice around the room and have 6 students roll and retell. or I could roll as the teacher and choose students to retell. This would also work great for small reading groups.
