Last week Kristin Gray shared a simple idea that redefines the term bell-to-bell instruction. Many of us agree that there’s not enough time in the day “to get it all done” however Kristin and group of teachers at her school introduced “Chat-n-Chew”. The idea is simple, put 15 ideas together in a looping ppt, with a 30 second transition between slides, and let it play over lunch.
“It was so fun to walk around and see students pointing at the screen and offering what they thought the answer would be and explaining why!” What’s great about this idea is that it can be implemented in every school and not just for math.
Although it’s too late to officially sign up now, Kristin is also hosting a Twitter Book Study for the book Making Number Talks Matter. The conversation will be trending under #mNTmTCH. Feel free to crash the party and add your thoughts. More on this below…
