I made a random discovery on my computer. My I Tunes has this neat visualizer that comes on when you are listening to music. It's so relaxing. :) I'm sure MOST people already know about it, but it was a fun little discovery as I was listening to some classical music. In addition I made a "Peaceful Music in the Classroom" mix for my writing time or just quiet work time. I linked up a lot of my favorite soundtracks and classical music that I like. The link to it is on Pinterest below. This…

Chalk Talk

At the beginning of a unit of inquiry, a teacher has the important responsibility of creating a desire within her students to know about and understand a particular concept. During this initial “invitation” phase of the inquiry, teachers need to set up learning engagements where students can feel safe enough to take risks, ask questions, explore, be engaged, share their background knowledge, and to think outside the box. Yes, this initial step is a pre-assessment; it is essential that the…

They're at it again! I have now twice (April 25, 2014 and March 28, 2014) written about teachers in my school using the Visible Thinking Routine Generate-Sort-Connect-Elaborate (Making Thinking Visible by Ritchhart, Church, and Morrison) as a way to help students uncover and organize prior knowledge to identify connections. In first grade, teachers used this Thinking Routine to help invite their students into the unit of inquiry Sharing the Planet. Students will investigate the changes that…

What Makes You Say That?

Connect: I decided to focus on Predictions with my group of 4th grade intervention students as we were concluding a short novel in our Lit Circle. The premise of the entire novel was the question of whether or not there were occasions in which little white lies MIGHT be appropriate. The majority of the novel focused on the main character's problem of having dropped her grandmother's favorite necklace down the toilet: should she just flush it and never tell, or somehow get it out before…

Teaching Conceptually using Tug-of-War

Currently, our G4 students, with the help of their teachers, are trying to understand that maintaining health requires knowledge of body systems and the diseases that affect them. They are trying to understand this big idea through the conceptual lenses of causation and responsibility as they inquire into one’s personal responsibility for health. To guide students through this inquiry, a G4 teacher recently used the Tug-of-War thinking routine from Making Thinking Visible by Ritchhart…

Making Mathematical Thinking Visible with The Explanation Game

In Minnesota, third graders need to be able to represent multiplication facts by using a variety of approaches, such as repeated addition, equal-sized groups, arrays, area models, equal jumps on a number line and skip counting (3.1.2.3). For students aged 8- and 9-years-old, this mathematics benchmark is quite dense. Even the "I Can" statement, written in kid-friendly language, is still fairly complex and abstract. To help her students understand the concept and be able to successfully…

In fifth grade in Minnesota, students need to meet 31 social studies benchmarks. Among those benchmarks are seven history benchmarks that fall within the era of "Revolution and a New Nation: 1754-1800": Identify major conflicts between the colonies and England following the Seven Years War; explain how these conflicts led to the American Revolution. Describe the development of self-governance in the British colonies and explain the influence of this tradition on the American Revolution…

Visible Thinking

To teach the concept of visible thinking to my kindergarteners I showed them a picture of a group of three objects. Ask your students to tell you what they see. You'll quickly get a clear response. "I see three teddybears." The lesson comes when you ask your students to tell you how they KNOW there are three teddybears. I did this lesson with balls, and got so many answers: "I just know." "Because I'm smart." "Because there ARE three." "It was in my brain." "I'm ready for grade one." "My…
