Thanks to Rosemary for getting on board and accepting the make-shift changes on Wednesday morning.
In case you are fuzzy on the details, I combined G6 with the 2 students in G7/8 while she took G4. We made it through the day. I did want to share what I did though because I think it worked really well. My levels for the day are "Full Flip" classes and I did just that. G6 was told to study the grammar and be ready to teach it the next day. So this morning I got them to make a Kahoot!
They were none too pleased with me at first but once it got going it was pretty cool. There was an assigned scribe who was responsible for typing up the questions and answers. The other students were paired up and tasked with coming up with the questions (and possible answers) to give the scribe.
When they were done, I checked for grammatical errors. I didn't correct but told them which numbers to look at again and got them to submit their corrections. Most were taken care of after the first re-write. Then I checked the possible answers and did the same - gave it back to them for correction.
The funniest thing about the day is that we actually played the Kahoot when they were done and they got many of the answers wrong. It proved to them that a) they need to study more, b) they need to do their homework and c) they need to pay more attention to each other in group work.
We used the Kahoot as a learning tool too, in that when students realized their answers were wrong, other students who had the right answer stepped in and 'taught', so it worked out really well.
Bunmi had a good one to share too but it's late and I want to go home.
