    Thank you for the spiralling starter strategies! It is very concise, informative and seems doable; especially with the ideas called Thinkback Thursday and Fix-up Fridays. I have also heard of teachers using catchy phrases (e.g. Ketchup Friday) like this to organize and/or consolidate their students’ learning near the end of a week. I have seen it being implemented for many grade,s and not only for Math but also Literacy, and once the plan with the relevant materials/tools has been formally introduced and put into action it is really neat to watch the students actually remind others what day of the week it is. I think it is a cool and creative way to get the students fully engaged and interested in the learning that will take place (especially when it comes to mastering the skill of spiralling Math lessons).
