Talk Points Make Talking Points
My students need a set of Talk Points and a set of Talk Blocks to assist in centers and add fun to everyday learning.
It is the challenge of every teacher to make learning engaging and make the eyes of our children get wide with wonder and excitement in every lesson that is taught.
In third grade, part of every schoolday consists of moving about the room in small groups called centers.
This is always considered a fun time for students because they get out of their desks and work with friends while learning. I am always searching for ways to make center time even more engaging no matter what the subject area.
In order to make center time more engaging in my classroom, I would like to use small square and circular devices called Talk Blocks and Talk Points. These handy items come in bold colors and can actually record the teacher's or students' voices in order to give instructions, ask a question, answer a question, or whatever that particular center calls for. For example, my students will use the Talk Points when they are in a learning station in order to hear the directions as many times as they need. Then, in another station, the group will elect a spokesperson and record him or her explaining the answer to a question posted on the board. The possibilities are endless with these handy gadgets!
These Talk Blocks and Talk Points will engage multiple senses when they are used in small groups.
I hope to use the Talk Blocks and Points to make center time more fun and engaging!
