RYCMM ACTIVITY TOOLS!
Choose, download, share with your students, one or all of the RYCMM Inspection & Reflection activity tools to use along with the RYCMM video.
Tool 1 - Perfect for all grade levels and abilities. Students write the date and RYCMM math concept and use the space provided like a graffiti exercise, writing down their thoughts, reflections, and answers to the RYCMM Inspection & Reflection questions. This tool is great to use as a springboard for math talks.
Tool 2 - Perfect for teachers looking to have student create their own math "dictionary" of terms. Space is provided for students to add the "boring" dictionary definition, the fun RYCMM math rap, and additional space for them to write down their thoughts, reflections, and answers to the RYCMM Inspection & Reflection questions. This is great to use a reference tool and as a springboard for math talks.
Tool 3 - Math Meets Art. Have students show knowledge by using this larger provided space to draw, scribble, and work out whatever they need to connect with today's RYCMM math concept. This tool is great to use as a springboard for math talks or to share in gallery walks.
Tool 4 - Math Rap video storyboard activity tool. After your students have explored the RYCMM, challenge one or a group of students to make a short Math Rap video for that RYCMM. Hang onto these videos that your students make and (with permission) use them in years to come. Younger siblings, especially, will get a kick out of seeing their older siblings blast out these Math Raps. OPTION? With permission, share them on social media using the tag @rockyourclass and #rockyourclass and your school will qualify for our school year end draw for prizes including online math concert/interviews with ÉTIENNE and cool math t-shirts! https://educorock.com/search?type=product&q=math
