Each day, students complete a warm-up that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material. Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.
For a video narrative about how I structure each lesson, and how the warm-up fits in, click here.
Today's huddle is about ensuring mastery before the assessment, and so I focus on the Round 4 questions and ensure that EVERY kid can do them by cold-calling, walking around checking work, and asking kids to demonstrate their thinking on the board. It is worthwhile to really push for 100% here.
Homework is to be completed at home and should take students approximately 15 minutes.
