Rubric
 
 
The teamwork rubric is a tool used to develop my pupils' ability to acquire and develop more effectively when speaking in a group, and seek out support. Each day during our mini lessons students use the rubric to ask for help, give feedback, compliment, reflect and empathize with their peers. The main purpose of the teamwork is to hold teammates accountable, encourage improvement, increased participation by all students no matter their level of speaking capability.

Collaborative Student Groups

Color Teams

Color Teams are teams that students form themselves within the rotation groups that I have created. Students usually work in their Color Teams when we conduct a group task. When students are working in their teams, I encourage them to use academic discourse and math vocabulary words. Given that students spend a significant amount of time working independently on digital content in my blended classroom, Color Teams are an important structure to foster productive group work among my students.

Student Data
 
 
This is a point tracking poster I use monthly to encourage collaboration, teamwork, positive verbal statements and exchanges in the whole group and small groups, and a shared sense of pride. The teams are heterogeneous and student roles are chosen by students or may often be randomly drawn using our “numbered heads” strategy. At the end of a month, all teams are rewarded with a class board game time, brief movie, or a homework-free day.

Peer Tutoring on Computers

When a student is working on the computers, they may ask a peer for help if they haven't successfully figured out how to solve a problem. I emphasize trying something first on your paper to explain what you have tried to your buddy, and ask for ideas they may have. Given the adaptive nature of our BL software, many students are encountering difficult content. I want my students to teach each other how to overcome challenges and persevere. This helps to create a sense of unity along with our motivational BL wall. 

 
Instructional Openings
Vocabulary Prediction Chart

In my class, we go over one word a day from the unit we’re learning. The first step is to ask the class how many have heard of the word before. After I tally the number, those students predict its meaning (without giving any contexts). I ask them to justify why they make that prediction (e..g, where have they heard that word before? What clues are they drawing their information from?). After they share their predictions, I then share with them the signal or physical movement attached to word. It then becomes the signal word of the day.

 
Routines and Procedures
Focusing Call and Response

I use "call and response" strategies for a variety of purposes in my blended classroom, most of which involve getting my students' attention and reinforcing core concepts of the day's lesson or our school's mission. I use the Focusing Call and Response strategy, which consists of using more than one call and response chant, whenever I need to signal a major change in the mode of instruction or any other time I need to get my students' attention quickly and respectfully. The strategy engages my students and helps them work together to achieve 100% compliance with any instructions I may give. This strategy is especially important because there are so many transitions in my school's blended learning model.
