Typically, our math time consists of a warm-up, an introductory period or activity, and then the bulk of our time is spent in centers or small groups.
As I was planning for the week, I though I’d share, for what it’s worth, the fact that, for our whole group work, I frequently use the SMART Notebook app on an iPad that I mirror through a projector and Apple TV. I don’t have a SMART board. They’re clunky and not really all that interesting. But the mobile app itself is pretty handy. It’s sometimes a little buggy when files get more complicated and visually heavy. The one feature I like the best is the use of the infinite cloner, which means you can drag and drop copies of pretty much anything you insert or create.
Food for thought.
