    Grading Math Homework
    By mjh96

    Clip to ScrapBook
    The first 5 minutes of math class, I have a routine--the kids take out their homework and immediately begin reveiwing and correcting it with their table (4-5 kids). They use fancy/colorful pens, so they can see their corrections. The groups agree on correct answers, and discuss/explain anything they don't agree on.

    While the groups are discussing, I circulate around the room with my clipboard to check off who doesn't have their homework complete, and to make sure they are on task and productive with their discussions.

    After about 5 minutes, I ask the groups to share any problems that they still don't agree on as a table-usually there are one or two for the whole class. We go over those as a class.

    The whole process takes less than 10 minutes, and afterwards we launch immediately into the day's warm-up problem.
