Shorter Math Block
I am a 6th grade teacher and currently have 3 sections of math, each about 50 minutes long (except on days when the announcements run long). Do you have any suggestions for how to fit all the good math thinking into a 50 minute block? Is there time for a mind’s on/warm-up, a full task (including consolidation), and an exit ticket? Is it a good idea to split a task over 2 days so we can spend time going deep into the thinking or should I try to pick shorter (less meaty) tasks? Do I skip the warm up? Rotten decisions to have to make.
