Today is the 2nd day of school for my district. Today I gave my kiddos a cognitive guided math question. They were told what manipulatives they could use to solve the problem. Then I had had them journal about when they found the answer. I did nothing else to help them. They did EVERYTHING on their own. I was SO impressed and happy. I went across the hall and gave those 2nd grade teachers a high after school. When they asked me if their answer was correct all I said to them was how many kids do you have in the 10 cars. They said 36. I then asked is that how many kids wanted to go on the roller costar. They said yes. So they answered the question themselves.!!! I loved this!!!
Do you do C G I in your classroom?? If you do, give me some suggestions of what I could do better and/or what it looks like in your classroom.
