This week I also used an activity featured in an earlier blog post. Here is the previous post: Multiplication Detectives!
I revamped this acitvity and have posted it on my Teachers Pay Teachers store! Here is the listing on my TpT store!
During one of my classes, we had a fire drill, so that really limited the time spent on this activity. As an alternative, I displayed the problems on the board, and then students worked with shoulder partners to solve and decide on the mistake made. I used a timer and then we went over the problem as a class. We actually got quite a few problems done using this method, so this might be a great alternative for classes that have a shorter amount of time in their class periods.
I discovered Edpuzzle while reading my twitter feed! I decided to see what it was all about and I am in love! It is an amazing resource! I love to assign videos to my students to watch but I am never quite sure if they are really paying attention to the video or not. Here is where EdPuzzle comes in! EdPuzzle has videos and allows you to build comprehension questions into the video. So while the student watches the video, it will stop and ask a question. You can make the questions multiple choice for easy grading or open ended. You can also stop a video to include a note that you want students to write in their journals or just pay special attention to, this can also be done with a voice note, which will record your voice.
Edpuzzle is free! You sign up as a teacher and then you are given a class code. Students sign up using the class code. You can use the search tool to find already made products that you can copy and edit all for FREE!
Once you find a video to use, you can then assign it to your class. You can assign due dates and you can also prevent skipping through the video! Which I love! After the students complete the video you can click on progress and see how they did with the questions you provided!
EdPuzzle is a great resource to use for blended classrooms!
I hope you all have a great week, and I would love to hear your ideas!
Peace, Love and Math- Jennifer
