Still trying to figure out why.... The foldable with the flaps for multiplication and division and then for addition and subtraction on the same rows are seeming to help with that...we chose the same colors for each flap because they were on the same row and we do them both as we move from left to right... the kids seemed to buy into it ... we'll see... :)Angiehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/06884118610394397563noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7507025470152245702.post-46880693890582567592012-09-09T18:10:26.990-07:002012-09-09T18:10:26.990-07:00"so that my students get that innate sense of..."so that my students get that innate sense of the steps"<br /><br />What about creating a question for them (situation or word problem) where they can construct their own number equation to represent the situation. Then have them calculate it without knowing anything about PEMDAS.<br /><br />hopefully they'll come up with different answers. then it would be a good time to talk about why order of operations make sense -- and that it's not just a term to memorize.Jimmy Paihttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10164577294310143232noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7507025470152245702.post-36061157217319648182012-09-07T21:44:26.207-07:002012-09-07T21:44:26.207-07:00Steve,

I think I was focusing on making sure my sixth graders knew exactly where to cut, but I think a big X would have worked just as well. I'll try that next time.<br /><br />You're right; I have to be really careful when differentiating. My students are likely to yell out, "Why does he/she get their's cut for them?" I don't want to embarrass anyone! Still... I need to find ways to do that so the lesson can move at a good pace for everyone. I'll keep working on it! :) Thanks for the suggestions!Angiehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/06884118610394397563noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7507025470152245702.post-52328972792540863262012-09-07T21:34:36.625-07:002012-09-07T21:34:36.625-07:00This isn't exactly the type of help you were s...This isn't exactly the type of help you were soliciting, but I would consider doing something much less ink-intensive with the part of the foldable that you're going to cut away. Light gray or just a big X in each section, something like that.<br /><br />As for one of the questions you *did* ask: Perhaps if you knew you had say, five students who take much longer than average to cut things out, you could do part of the cutting for them ahead of time. Cut away all the black (gray?) area, for example. Then they've got a little bit of a head start. <br /><br />Depending on the dynamics in your classroom you may need to be pretty subtle in passing out the "special" foldables. I find it's generally better to be straightforward about it, even joking with the students, but I teach high school so my students are a little less dependent on positive strokes from me for their emotional well-being, but you'll know what would work for your students, I'm sure.Steve Grossberghttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11066953723761392075noreply@blogger.com
