Classroom Management Strategies


Brain Break- math relay using differentiated questions to assess students’ comfort and understanding of review and new concepts that have been introduced.



Math Relay Race Brain Break:

Students will race in rows to see who can complete the relay first. To start the student at the front of the row will move to the back of the row and the rest of the students will all move forward one desk. Students will stand beside their desk until it is their turn. The student at the front desk will answer a math question as fast as possible from one of the cards on the desk. Students will self-assess their level of confidence with the introduction of new multiplication concepts and choose the card that best represents their level of understanding. Green cards are established and will have the most complex questions, yellow cards are meeting and will have intermediate level questions and red cards will be progressing and have review questions on them. Once the student at the front has answered the question correctly they will move to the back of the row and the next student will sit down. The row is finished once all the students have completed a question, returned to their proper desk and sit down. The cards will be gathered and kept for a formative assessment.
