Math 6 co-teaching team

We presented the graphic organizer to our fellow math 6 teaching team. We had talked about the graphic organizer before to them when we used it with our class on several occasions.  We gave them the book to review prior to our meeting.  After discussing and presenting examples, they decided to complete their example using the concept of properties.  They learned quickly.  The routine did not present any real challenges.  We had a good discussion regarding the always and sometimes  concepts.  We put our heads together and came up with the solution that we all agreed upon.

The routine was presented to the students as a review before their test on properties.  The students were very receptive to the new concept.  It was a great tool to use for review.  I was excited to see how well the students responded to the new graphic organizer.
