The entertainment theme sounds like a great idea for those grade levels! I am looking forward to reading more of your posts.
Also, I am looking for ideas and tips on differentiated math with 3rd and 4th graders.
I will try to do some cool math posts this year. One thing I do is similar to those exercise shows you see on television. I create three similar math problems with varying degrees of difficulty (similar to a low impact, medium impact, and high impact exercise) for our morning math. I tell the students to complete the problem which creates challenge without ending in frustration. If they get done with a problem early, then of course they may attempt the next highest level while others are still finishing. Thanks for reading. ~Brent
