If you use Kagan Cooperative Learning Strategies in your classroom, these Table Group Labels are perfect for you! What makes my labels unique are:1) You have two options: each student within a group has a different color label, or each table group has the same color label.
Do you work with small groups of students? Do your students love to use task cards in your classroom? This teacher friendly approach incorporates task cards using a table for a game of Scoot and is a great approach for smaller groups of students.
Instead of "Talking Chips," I use "Talking Points." It's a play on words that only I enjoy. The kids enjoy earning points for talking! Laminate, and they become re-usable. Or, kids could write their names on the back for cashing in their points.From Kagan's web page:Language functions: Communication regulator, Fluency builderAdvantages: Every student is held accountable for participating.
A Kagan inspired icebreaker that focuses on ELA CCSS. Students have the task of finding other students who can explain the relationships between homographs, synonyms, antonyms and homonyms.A great way to assess background knowledge, get the year started by thinking about word relationships - and of course get to know each other!
This is a great game to use with your Kagan groups as ALL students are actively engaged at ALL times! Use all year with any of your vocabulary lists. Students will give synonyms, antonyms, definitions, and silently act out their weekly words. This is a perfect way to integrate social studies and science vocabulary terms to your reading block!
