For the first time all year, I have made the Smart Board a student-run center during math. I'm not sure why it's taken so long, but I'm glad I finally got to it.
Or maybe it's good I waited this long? I was happily surprised that this group needed very few reminders on how to use it independently. They were definitely ready.
(P.S. If you're curious, the kids are playing a coin/money game. It's been great because we are in the early stages of learning about money.)
