This is great and super helpful. I loved getting to see the problem worked through step by step and just the small tips you guys have like mentioning students name. This is empowering.

So glad to hear you’re enjoying it! I have a special place for the Shot Put task and the entire unit in my heart because it took so long to plan and create. It is truly a powerful one!

This is very helpful! I am hoping that giving students voice at a distance through live video chats will really help with all of this!

About how long should this step of sparking curiosity take? I have done notice and wonders in other subjects before and some kids will go on for a very long time.

Early in the process / school year as you build community, it can take a fair bit of time. However, once students begin to understand the process, it is much shorter.

The Brainigcamp.com number line seems to be an excellent tooll to know and master.

I wonder how this will work in my classroom and what is the purpose of its use besides engagement and accountability?

I find it really helpful for promoting the idea of magnitude of number. Giving students a spatial representation of quantities compared to one another. Such an important idea that often goes overlooked!

I also wonder, what if only a few students participate. I am worried at the beginning of the year, students will be hesitant to share and be vulnerable about their “wrong” answers, especially virtually.
