day 2: establishing consensus about noise level and care of materials

day 2: establishing consensus about noise level and care of materials

Presenting and Selecting Tools: Mia reviews with students early on how to care for and organize their tools for learning. She has her students use an “I Found This!” bucket to gather stray cubes, counters, and other materials for learning.

CONSIDER:
Do you and your students agree about noise level and care of materials?

These videos are discussed in the Inside Mathematics guide "Using Tools in Support of Thinking, Mia Buljan, 2nd grade," one of 10 practice-focused guides on building classroom climates for mathematical learning.

The videos document key mathematical practices observed in teacher Mia Buljan's 2nd grade classroom over the course of a school year. In the guide (available as a PDF or an iBook download), you can explore extended narratives and questions for reflection around "using tools in support of thinking."
