My students tend to be more of a kinesthetic group of students. They love to work in groups and are very helpful. They are very respectful and hardworking. Each day they enter through my classroom doors, they enter with an open-mind. They know that we will be learning something new and are always ready to see what I have in store for them.
When there is a student struggling with content I may have covered, there is always a student willing to step in and help that student, so he/she won't be left behind.
When we are in review mode, the students seem like they race to try and work problems on the board. I love their enthusiasm.
For review, I create a Jeoporady game. I place the students in 4 - 5 groups most of the time, depending on how many students I have. While the students are playing Jeopardy, they are allowed to discuss their reasoning on their answers and also teach other students. The only downfall to this activity is that I have to look to see which group held their hand up first to answer the question and that can be a headache sometimes.
Buzzers will benefit this assignment tremendously because they would help me to see which group responded to the question the fastest.
I believe the students would also like the use of these buzzers as well because they would feel as though this would be more competitive.
