Day 19: integer addition

Not much to report today. This class had the same lesson as yesterday’s standard class. Since everyone had their number properties foldable I was able to move to the online activity sooner. We even able to get to a point of discovering the rule for adding integers with the same sign.

A thought just popped into my head, when there are extended periods of silence how do you know if students are thinking or just waiting for you to give them the answer. That happened today with discovering the rule for adding integers with the same sign. Eventually one or two students spoke up.

Should I have asked students to journal…”Tell me what you’re thinking.”
