Teaching Math Interactively in Prep
Prep teachers have recently participated in the one-day Promethean Level 2 Professional Development. They decided to apply their skills and knowledge to create a unit on Math. They created fun flipcharts to teach on the topics of money and time effectively. Using the flipcharts, students learned about the parts of a clock, played “What time is it Mr. Wolf?”, and explained how to tell time to the hour. In the Money unit, they used the IWB to identify the coin values, sort coins, and use different combination of coins to show a specified amount. Teachers are finding the most effective way to use the IWB is to integrate flipcharts with class discussion, show and tell, and problem solving activities.
