My Google Forms Idea: CFU Formative Assessments - Show What You Know Standards Review

I have been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting since my students took the CAASPP Interim Assessment and Performance Task and the CAASPP Summative Assessment and Performance Task this year.  Although the Assessments were complex and rigorous, I feel that overall my students were really prepared.

Because we don't use a math textbook and I don't use worksheets, my students are used to doing their "Math" work on whiteboards or lined paper.  It was one of my goals this year to teach my students that "Math" was not about the answer, but about the process.  I taught my students not to take shortcuts, and that doing the work and checking their work was important.

I have previously blogged about my love for Showbie for many reasons, but the main reason is my "paperless" tasks.  I love my 'paperless" tasks because the students love to do the "Math" on the iPads.

But more importantly I like using "paperless" tasks because through Showbie I can easily "check for understanding" and leave feedback.

I am very fortunate to have 1:1 technology in my classroom and so it was important for me to also use the technology to prepare my students for the Common Core way of testing.  I wanted to teach my students to be just as comfortable with doing the "Math" on paper that they love doing on the iPad.  So I varied the assignments and had students practice doing the "Math" on lined paper and on whiteboards.
My students were awesome, they never complained.  My students eagerly did the "Math". Sometimes the "Math" would take a lot of work. But they did it. Throughout the year there was a lot of "Math" being done in my classroom. What more could a "Math" Teacher want. :o)

I achieved my goal and overall my students were prepared for the Common Core way of testing. My students rocked it on the CAASPP, and they went through a lot of scratch paper doing the "Math". Even though I am proud of my students' effort and hard work, I know that taking a computerized test is still very different.  I know that there is still more that I can do to prepare my students for the transition to computerized testing.

Because I am on the District Technology Committee and the Technology Lead Teacher at my school, I want to incorporate some of the Google resources in my classroom next year. I decided that Google Forms would be a good resource for me to implement in my math classroom.

I wanted to think of a unique way to use Google forms because I have other "Exit Ticket" methods and other "Interactive" response resources that I really like.  I needed an "Out of the Box" idea.

This is when I came up with my idea for using Google Forms in my classroom.  I wanted to use Google Forms as a Formative Assessment tool with my Math 8 students. With my Google Forms Show What You Know - CFU Formative Assessments I can teach my students how to understand and reason through a problem, do the "Math" on paper, check their work and then answer the question on the Assessment.

Here is my first Google Forms CFU - Formative Assessment Show What You Know - Standards Review.  

Try my Show What You Know - Standards Review from the view of the student.  :o)

My plan for my new Google Forms Idea: Show What You Know - Standards Review is to use these Formative Assessments every week, and create practice assessments that would include various answer methods.  Along with Concept Assessments I plan on doing Cumulative Assessments.  

My goal for next year is to use my Google Forms CFU - Formative Assessments to help my students become comfortable with thinking through and doing the "Math" with various types of questions and various answer methods.

Feeling Accomplished: Reflecting on a Successful Year

This year I have finished my 3rd year of teaching 8th Grade Common Core Math.  For the last three years I have been creating all of the 8th Grade Math curriculum.  After reflecting on my lessons regularly, I have been tweaking and changing the curriculum over the last three years trying to find a way to pace the concepts so that I can fit everything in.  I have also put a lot of thought into how to teach these concepts to my students effectively.  Last year (my second year) was a good year. The rearranged pacing was exactly what was needed. Even though it was a good year, I knew that there were still changes that needed to be made.

 Last summer I spent the entire summer doing a lot of reflecting after going through the experience of the SBAC Field Test.  I knew that my curriculum was on the right track but there were things I needed to do to make sure that my students were prepared for the CAASPP Summative Test this year.  I knew that I needed to do more to get them to the next level.  

All of my hard work and reflection paid off. The CAASPP Summative Preliminary Results are out and I am so excited.  All of my students' perseverance and hard work paid off. My students tried so hard on this test and really wanted to do well.  I know that they will be super excited too.... :o)

Success One: My Students' Interactive Math Notebooks
I have been using my Interactive Math Notebooks for a long time, but this year one of my goals was to teach my Math 8 students how effectively use their Interactive Math Notebooks.  In the past it was really difficult to get Math 8 students to utilize their IMN effectively. But this year it was one of my goals and I am so excited that I finally did it.  I was able to teach my Math 8 students to use their IMN effectively as a reference to support their learning. :o)

I think the biggest reason my IMNs were a success with my Math 8 students this year is because I emphasized how important they were from Day One with my motivational talk and giving them "A Letter to my Students" to put as the first page of their IMN, (so it would be the first thing they saw every time they opened their notes).  And another reason my IMNs were so successful this year was my color-coded guided notes.  I insisted that the students color-code exactly like the notes I was giving. The color-coding helped the students see the connections when they used their notes as a reference.  I also insisted that when we were done taking both sides of the notes that the students put the notes into the prongs of their notebooks. By the second quarter the students understood my procedures and expectations for their IMN. :o)

In many of the pictures that I have posted, it is evident that the students truly utilized their IMN. And the best part was, that at the end of the year 100% of my Math 8 students still had their IMNs. This confirms that my Math 8 IMNs were a success for sure... :o)

Success Two: My "Solve It, PROVE It" Daily Warm-up: 

Last year I realized that I really needed to find a way for my students to get comfortable with "Explaining" and "Justifying" their reasoning.  One of my new ideas that I came up with over the summer for this year was my "Collaborative Team" daily warm-up: "Post It, PROVE It", which evolved into my "Solve It, PROVE It".  And OMG, this was by far my #1 idea. To see the growth of my students' academic discussions and written explanations was amazing.  

I told my students from the beginning that I thought of this idea to help them learn to "Justify their Reasoning" and to prepare them for the CAASPP Summative Assessment.  My students never complained.  They eagerly solved and proved my complex problems collaboratively the entire year (even after they completed the CAASPP Summative Assessment).

Here are some examples of my "Solve It, PROVE It" daily warm-ups and examples of the students' collaborative explanations. 

These are examples of my student's individual responses to support their answers. Throughout the year I could see tremendous growth in their verbal and written explanations. 

Looking at the growth my students made in their reasoning and justifying in math I can see that my collaborative "Solve It, PROVE It" was what truly made the difference. Definitely a keeper. :o)

Success Three: My Collaborative Teams

I have previously blogged in detail about my "Collaborative Teams" in my Math 8 classes. This year my Math 8 periods are only 50 minutes, which goes really fast.  I have to get a lot of concepts in in such a short amount of time and I have found that my "Collaborative Team" structures has been extremely beneficial for my Math 8 students. This year I have put an emphasis on the students' math discussion and justifying their reasoning, which is done collaboratively.

My students are learning more than ever this year because of my classroom structure and the emphasis I put on the collaborative team discussion.  The most successful part of my "Collaborative Teams" is not only the "Team Task" but also doing the whole class practice problems with recorder/reporter.  Because only one student has a whiteboard, it forces the rest of the team to discuss to help the recorder/reporter (solve/explain) each practice problem. This rotates and each "Team Member" is recorder/reporter repeatedly throughout the lesson.    

I know that my "Collaborative Teams" are effective and I have the structures and procedures that I need in place. Next year I want to take it to the next level and really focus on deeper mathematical discourse.  :o)

Success Four: My Students' Growth Mindset
Another one of my goals for this year was to teach my students to "Persevere Through Struggle".  I told them from Day One that "Learning is not Easy" but I would help them to not only "Persevere" but that I would teach them to "Embrace" that "Struggle".  It was not easy for any of us... There were days when it was tough... But I too "Persevered" and continued to encourage and motivate... And in the end it was worth it for all of us... :o)

Here are some of the ideas that I used this year that were super effective.
My mid-year "Sticky Note" motivational poster.

My student's "Letter to Myself" Reflections every quarter.

My "Collaborative Team" hashtag posters. (These stayed on the wall all year)

I will for sure use all of these ideas next year because I know that they worked.  I have some new ideas for next year that I can't wait to try.  :o)

Success Five: My Structured 1:1 iPads in Math
I have blogged and tweeted a lot about my iPads and Math this year and I know that I have created some engaging and effective lessons for my students.  Next year we will be going to "Blocked" Math Periods, which is awesome because I will finally have more time with my students.  This also awesome because now I can go more 1:1 with my regular math class.  I am going to "Mash" the structure of my "collaborative Teams" in my Math 8 with the structure of my "Self-Paced" 1:1 iPads in Math Support.

Overall I am extremely elated at how my hard work paid off this year.  I am keeping many of my great ideas, but I am always learning and always discovering ways to take it to the next level.... I already have a list of new ideas for next year.... I am glad to have the summer to bring those ideas to fruition... 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog.... Follow me this summer as I blog about my new ideas for next year.... :o)

End of the Year Student Reflections and Google Forms

Although I use a lot of technology in my classroom, I only recently started learning about Google Forms.  My plan for next year is to use Google Forms for Formative Assessments in Math 8.

To practice creating and using Google Forms, I decided to use my Math Support students as "guinea pigs".  For my first experience with Google Forms I created a Teacher Report Card, an End of the Year Math Reflection for the Students and an iPad App Reflection.

I loved reading my students responses.  It was nice to have validation for all of my hard work. And it was so awesome to see that I had helped so many of my students change their mindsets about learning and about math.  :o)

What are the three most important things you learned this year in Math Support this year?

The three things that I learned this year was a lot of new concepts that I never heard of. Another one is the posters that she put up on the wall. Last was learning a lot with my group members.
-Be prepare -Be precise –Behave.
Three of the most important things I have learned this year was to always use your notes, ask for help when you need it, and to always study before a test.
I learned many things. I even learned to never give up that we have to embrace learning math through struggle.
The three most important things I learned this year were how to work hard for tests, how to take care of an IPad and to work through my struggles and not give up.
What I learned in math support was how to stay organized, how to work hard and to show respect.
The 3 important things I learned this year were to pay attention, don't mess around, and don't mess up in school.
~Math ~Work hard ~keep trying
That we have to be precise, to never give up , and to use the iPads properly.
The most important things that I learned this year is I can reach my goals by not giving up and persevering.
To be precise. To check if my answer make sense. Also to try my hardest to persevere.
- Always ask for help when stuck. - Work hard. - NEVER give up.
Everything I learned in this class is something that is important to me and will never forget.
That I should be precise and never give up, and also to explain how I got the answer.
To try my best, to believe in myself and to work hard and make myself proud.
The 3 things I learn this year was that if you try you will get where you want to . The second one was that you got to pay attention and study to get good grade in math. And the third one was that learning is not easy and not to give up.
The three most important things I learned in math support this year is to always use your notes. Another thing that's important is to show your work. The last important thing is if you need help to ask questions.
To be successful never give up. Be precise. And work hard.
I think that the most important am things I learned is to be precise, don't take shortcuts, and not to go fast.

What advice would you give students who will be in this Math class next year?

You will have fun but it's hard after a while BRING YOUR NOTES they will help you a lot.
Always try your best because it is very important for your future.
To work hard and never ever give your hopes up. You can do it.
Some advice I would give the kids is do good in this class don't mess around do what you are supposed to and always follow directions.
The advice I would give students who will be in math support is that the teacher is very organized. She also always wants you to be prepared for when you take a test and she doesn't like it when you take short cuts also she always wants you to show your work because it's not about the correct answer it's about understanding the concept.
I would tell them be ready for a challenge and she makes you work hard.
The advice that I would give the students is to behave and not to mess around.
Don't get the teacher mad. Work hard. Ask questions if you need help.
Pay attention, persevere through struggle and follow the rules.
Try. Try really hard. Because having math support may sound stupid but it truly does help you out a lot.
To not mess around and do good and your teacher will be nice to you and let you do fun things like listen to music.
To try hard and don't give up. Always do your best and DONT GET THE TEACHER MAD.
That keep doing work in math support because it's extra help. Don’t be a time passer.
The advice I would give is to really focus in class and math will be really easy because when I started paying attention and working hard it started to be really easy.
That they should behave and listen so they don't do the same mistakes like I did.
Be good.! Don't ever disrespectful.! To always try..!! Never give up in her class because she'll do her best to help you understand!
That to keep trying on assignments that you don't understand because it will help you.
That you are lucky to be in this class because she is a very good teacher and will help you succeed.
To not get the teacher mad and to use the iPads properly and to not waste time.
Don't just do whatever. Listen clearly and try your best. Don't mess around. To learn you can’t give up.
Always do your best and don't annoy the teacher. Act like an eighth grader.
My advice for them is that they need to always be precise they need to be prepared to learn.
That they are going to have a good teacher and you will learn a lot.
