Closing a Lesson
Closing a lesson...this was one of the essential skills you learned in your teacher preparation program. I would bet we can all do it effectively, but I wouldn't be surprised if you sometimes quickly close a lesson because of that darn schedule (kids are leaving for intervention, lunch, end of day, next subject, etc.). Oh you don't....okay then its just I who does that sometimes. So for people like me, I love to find new closing activities when they look like a. something I can use for formative assessment and b. aren't going to eat up a bunch of time. So I was really encouraged when I stumbled across this fun little Teachers Pay Teachers freebie. Don't assume because it is made by Mr. Elementary Math that this will just work for math. These activities can be utilized in any subject. So I hope this helps to slow things down or gives you another way you can still close your lesson with limited time.
