Ok – at my school, we are starting with 2 synchronous & 3 asynchronous lessons each week in fully remote setting.
For my first two synchronous lessons, I plan to use the new Desmos “Get to Know You” activity, and the gummy worm estimation/subtraction task. I’m teaching 6th grade, but I think this will be a good one to focus on the structure of notice/wonder, estimates, and sharing thinking and build fluency with running class in an online space in a task that is both fun and very simple math for 6th graders. We’ll work through tech hurdles, then take on tasks with rigor/concepts better suited to 6th grade.
Thanks for the push Kyle!
