LOL! Dubby, a bellringer is a small activity that students do as they are entering or exiting class. Usually it is used as a small assessment piece.

I suppose it depends on what you have covered...

Watch some videos of Rube Goldberg machines a day or two before. Then have each student bring in some supplies, then build a class Rube Goldberg machine!

My biggest piece of advice would be to start with your standards and curriculum.
Pinterest has a lot of resources to get you started.

Teacherspayteachers is also a wonderful resource.

new teacher

This is the time to think about how YOU want to run the routine things in your classroom.

How will students turn in their work?
How will students line up?
How will you get their attention?

I'm thinking these will work great as exit tickets or as stations for our math workshop. I am especially excited by the performance tasks. Our curriculum really doesn't have the multi-step...

I, personally, LOVE workshop model for math. I wouldn't go any other direction.

However, workshop model really fits my teaching style. I have co-workers that really dislike the workshop model.

First off, thank you for focusing on this. As a sixth grade math teacher it drives me insane that the majority of my students come to me with little or no fluency skills!

Another great way to...
