#Wednesday Wisdom from Jennifer Saarinen:

Uses

  • 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.

Impact
Unimaginable. Exponential. Positive.

Advice
Start small. Give students a simple topic that they can all answer without worrying about what's right or wrong.
