Grade 5&6 Math Displays

She has been presenting the students with a variety of mathematical skills and concepts that have been part of previous EQAO assessments. Mrs. Baker set up these 45 minute sessions to be fast-paced and highly engaging, by using a variety of teaching methods: Kahoot Vocabulary game, math picture books, colour by number with metric conversions and many more. After each session was complete, students and teachers were left with extension activities and additional materials to help students “Get EQAO Ready!”

In late January, one of these tasks encouraged the Grade 5 & 6 classrooms to create a Classroom Math Display. You might think that January is a bit too early for preparing our classroom environments for EQAO, but Karly thinks the sooner the better! EQAO will be administered a bit differently this spring (virtually) and some guidelines have changed. As an example, classroom displays were previously taken down from classroom walls, covered up or modified. This is no longer the case.Holy Angels Catholic School Math Wall

Karly believes the longer the display is made available to students the more confident and comfortable students will have to access it. On these displays, students can find many math strategies, vocabulary, graphic organizers, examples and math tools. Intentionally and purposefully using classroom environments as a teaching resource can assist students in their day to day learning and with their EQAO assessment. Ultimately, all homeroom teachers want the students in Grade 6 to be resourceful by looking at all classroom displays if they are struggling at any time during their learning.
