My Why

Took my nearly 15 year old daughter and her boyfriend to the movies Friday. Tickled that they needed me to open their candy and wanted kids meals afterwards. Played with the toy the whole drive home, lol. :) It was a nice end to a long week.
Icing in the cake: walking into the theater to a certain young man excitedly calling out "Hi Ms. Bailey!" While he smiled and waved. Gave me a great big bear hug on the way out after and walked me out to parking lot engaging in nice conversation. Don't know why he was alone or where his parents were (he's a 7th grader) but grateful for the experiences I have.
This young man's first interaction with me was about a year ago. He cussed at me in the hallway when I asked him to stop running. I made a decision to make this kid my best buddy. I spent weeks (with my 6th grade class watching) trying to "kill him with kindness." Everyday on the way to lunch as he was coming back with another class I'd say "hello ,…

Mixing up Your Math Warmups and Homework

Image
I have recorded many of my lesson tutorials for years now but this year I have really added a lot for my students and I can see the positive difference it is making. I record explanations for each problem on their daily warm up and their daily homework.

In the past I've noticed students just writing random answers down to appear finished with their work. They either were embarrassed they didn't know what to do or too lazy to try, either way it's not an effective practice tool if they aren't able to practice the skill accurately. This gives me a couple of scenarios. Some students still might choose to only write down the answers provided to them. I don't give them credit if they don't show their work. Some students write down all the the work shown with the answers but don't try it themselves before watching the video.
