Goal 1: Incorporate the use of low floor, high ceiling activities in each unit of study.

Goal 2: Incorporate spiraling into classwork and station activities.

Goal 3: Use problems to introduce concepts.

Goal 5: Create digital activities to go with each unit.

Goal 6: Focus on creating mathematically literate students.

Great goals here Velicia. One wonder is where in your unit plan or daily plan do you see the low floor/high ceiling tasks fitting in?

I have worked out doing different activities each day as a bell ringer.

Monday: Which One Doesn’t Belong? (WODB?)

Tuesday: Estimation 180

Wednesday: Visual Patterns

Thursday: Same and Different

Friday: Would You Rather

I am working tiered tasks to match each strand.

Hi @VeliciaEverett

Loving your schedule here. Looks like a good lineup to build classroom culture.

Once you find that your classroom culture has built enough trust, risk-taking, discourse, you might consider swapping out one or more of those bell ringers with some math talks (i.e.: Number Talks by Sherry Perrish or Minilessons by Cathy Fosnot) to really hone in on number fluency.

Minilessons are my new favourite and both my students AND I learn something new each time I use them.

Also curious about your low-floor / high-ceiling tasks… while warm-ups do have a low floor, I wonder if @Jon is referring to tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving…
