Friday Favorites March 8

This week has been absolutely crazy for me I didn’t spend a lot of time on the computer. 
The best lesson I saw this week was in my own classroom.  
The lesson was presented by the field student that is teaching in my classroom this semester her name is Brooke. 

She did an absolutely fabulous lesson with my students.  It was a great hands-on lesson and all the students were busy working and building and creating. 

Right now in math we are learning about Solid Shapes.  I have found some wonderful lessons on TPT to introduce the unit.  Brooks, found a great lesson where the students had to create the cubes and pyramids using straws and pipe cleaners.   The trick is to bend the pipe cleaner into an L shape.   

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical when she first presented the idea to me.  However, I really like field students to feel free to try ideas in my classroom. 

And this is why………her idea was amazing!
The kids were working together and creating things on their own.  
Lots of cooperative learning!
