#Wednesday Wisdom from Jennifer Saarinen:
Parents and students complete math together.
Students post responses to moderated topic. Once all have completed students view to see how peers approached the problem to get the same answer in a different way.
Every students gets to share their voices and thoughts no matter what the topic is!
Bridging from Elementary to Middle School - Student to Student responses.
Unimaginable. Exponential. Positive.
Start small. Give students a simple topic that they can all answer without worrying about what's right or wrong.
