Sorting and partner reading

In math students were introduced to a new unit. I started with letting them know that I had so many buttons and beads and that I wanted to organize them into groups. So I sent them off to see what they could do. They did a great job coming up with ideas as shape, shiny ones, small ones, and ones with holes. The following day we created a tree map to show all the different ways we could sort and then students tried it again, this time creating three different ways to sort.

J did big medium and small

In reading students worked on putting post its on pages they wanted to share with a partner and then read that part to their partner and asked questions.
