Helpful Hints on Hump Day

Guess what day it is?  It's HUMP day!  I am also excited fo the second week of my new weekly link up "Helpful Hints on Hump Day!"

Now for my helpful hint...

I do a quick informal assessment of my kids every time we leave the room!  I ask them a question as we line-up or walk out the door.

Sometimes I will ask them information about a topic we just covered to gauge understanding.  It may be generating rhyming words, phoneme deletion or what does a scientist do.

Other times I use flash cards as their way out the door.  They have to answer an addition fact or read one or two high-frequency words.  If they can't do it, they go to the end of the line and then get to try again.  (I find this helps encourage them to practice at home too!)

Today I found another fun way!  I have the app Math Bingo on my iPad.  It ask the students an addition or subtraction problem (even multiplication or division) and they pick their answer on the bingo board.  I held the iPad and they read the question making their choice.  They loved it!  If you only have one iPad, this is a great way to give everyone the chance to interact with it.  I plan to try the Sight Word Bingo with them tomorrow.

I can't wait to see the other helpful hints from those that link up!
