Math Workshop
  • THIS is how I first began with workshop this year.      
  • Since then, I have changed it more to a format like THIS.   
  • However, recently I came across THIS great site and I plan to use this next year. 

Pack Up

Afternoon Meeting (Wrap-Up)
  • Students take turns wearing a "recap" hat and calling on others to recap the day
  • Write one recap from each day in a notebook starting with the first day of school and at the end of the year raffle it off to students or save it in your class library for your next year's kids 
  • Have a jar of wrap up questions and students can choose different ones to answer each day (How did you help a friend? What was your favorite activity? What are you doing this weekend?)
  • Share a pit and peak of the day (yes, I do watch the Kardashians!)
  • End of the Day Reflections
