I really like the quote, “Can you stay curious a little bit longer, and can you rush to action and advice giving just a little bit more slowly?” by Michael Bungay Stanier. I have trouble with this as I want students to get into action. I realize that my last submission was not that great and did not give students a lot to think about… I just changed the format of the text to make it a little more real. Staying quiet and not giving hints/solutions is a struggle for me.
I like the idea of manipulatives because it allows the students to work out ideas with their hands and does not require speaking (if they are math shy). It also allows for me to watch instead of wonder what is in their minds.
