Multiply by 7 in a fun way!

 

  Some of my students are having a hard time getting the concept of multiplication. As you teachers know we all have different levels of students in our classrooms. Some would grasp the concept easily but for others you have to find different ways in teaching the skill. This is where differentiated instruction plays a role. Today I showed my students how to multiply by 7 in a pattern. Teach a way to create multiplying by 7 in a fun way from patterns. Share this fun video with a parent or kid.This teaches a positive attitude toward math and pattern recognition, as well as teaching the times table. I hope you like it!

Miss Farah in the final 7 & supported by her students!

When The Social Media Awards was launched, I immediately told my second grade students about the big event. My 7 year old munchkins follow my blog and write to me all the time, so they are aware of my blog. They love browsing and  showing their parents what they have done in class. My students even told their parents about the Social Media Awards and a few of them came to me and asked me if I made it to the final 7. On Wednesday, March 27th was the day where they announced the final 7 in each category. I had forgotten to tell my students that I made it because well you know we teachers are so busy teaching, correcting, etc…:) but my students didn’t forget. Taleen, one of students, came to me and asked: “Miss Farah you never told us if you made it in the final 7!” I told her the good news and my students started jumping up and down expressing their happiness. I felt that they were proud of me in a way :) They are all excited to start voting for me now. It is amazing how students these days and at such a young age know so much about technology and social media. I will never stop blogging even if I ever consider changing my career. They inspire me daily to become a better teacher and a teacher who can make a difference!

Cheeseburger Book Report!
I wanted my students to enjoy doing a fun book report so we made this Cheeseburger book report where they stated the title, author, genre, setting, plot, their favorite, part, the conclusion, and a drawing from the story. Each one represented a part of the cheeseburger. It’s fun and it looks great. I will be hanging all the cheeseburgers on the bulletin board once I get them all handed in :D yeyy

Pay it Forward project

payitforward

   I was watching a movie the other day called “Pay it Forward” about a social studies teacher who gave the class an assignment to devise and put into action a plan that will change the world for the better. Trevor an 11 year old boy’s plan is a charitable program based on the networking of good deeds. He calls his plan “Pay It Forward”, which means the recipient of a favor does a favor for three others rather than paying the favor back. However, it needs to be a major favor that the receiver can’t complete themselves.
Trevor does a favor for three people, asking each of them to “pay the favor forward” by doing favors for three other people, and so on, along a branching tree of good deeds.
I was really inspired by this movie that I decided to have my students think of a plan in changing the world also based on a network. They can put it into action if they wanted to or just show the class their plan. I wanted to do this assignment to have them think better and get creative. They watched a part of the movie and i can feel it in their eyes they are all so excited about sharing their plans. Can’t wait to share with you some of the plans soon :)
