Julie, I start every class off with a warm-up session. This time allows me
to clean up from the previous class, set up, take attendance or collect hwk.
I don't think any student can ever have too much practice on the basics.
Fro my heterogeneous classes we often review problems from the 6th grade
curriculum. For my pre-algebra class we do that and incorporate mental
math. They are often using the distributive prop to help them solve math
problems with out paper and pencil. We then discuss what methods everyone
used to do this in their head. It stimulates great conversations using math
vocabulary.

We will actually see the students EVERY day for 90 minutes. It seems a
little daunting to me, mostly because I know you can only introduce so many
new ideas in math at once.

In my 90 minute blocks we are actually covering 2 days worth of material as
we won't be having a class the next day. Will that be your case or will you
get 90 minutes every day of the year.

I have been teaching reading and language arts to seventh and/or eighth
graders for the past 13 years. Next year, I will be moving to teaching
seventh grade "regular" math and pre-algebra for the first time.

 

The district is planning on implementing 90 minute blocks of math for the
first time. Do you have any suggestions or ideas about how this will work
best?

 

I am considering the following daily format: 1) review previous day's
concept; 2) introduce new concept; 3) practice new concept together as a
large group or possibly in small groups (using hands-on activities as much
as possible); 4) answer questions or review work from small groups; 5)
students work alone on what would once have been homework type of problems.

 

I would also like to do a logic or similar problem of the week that is
briefly introduced on Mondays, due and reviewed on Fridays.

 

I might also be getting a SmartBoard, so I want to use that to involve the
students as much as possible.
