#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!
- Staff Intros
- 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.
