Reflection: Lesson Planning Math Hunt Part 2 - Section 3: Share Out


When students are formulating questions, and also when they are sharing out, make sure that the data that was collected from school and home is where all children can see and refer to it. You may need to plan ahead to create a large chart with data from home and school so that children can see what people found about math. 

It is also important to make sure that the groups are working together. If you have not talked about working as a group, you may want to allow time for this before teaching this lesson. For group work I establish a set of expectations with the class. These include making sure everyone participates, not putting down anyone else's ideas, listening respectively, and taking turns. Students can usually come up with these guidelines and a chart of them can then be kept for reference for the year.
