Flipped Classroom in 2nd grade!! I know . . . it sounds ridiculous, but I'm giving it a go. Here is my plan:
I teach math with guided math groups. While I am teaching one group, I will choose a team leader for my higher group. This leader will run the Nearpod presentation for that day. They will move through the presentation as everyone works through each slide. This is how they will learn the standard for that day. The presentations will include slides, videos of me teaching the standard, and quizes.
The team leader will be responsible for sharing quiz scores and giving feedback at the end of the session. He/she will look on a checklist and will provide feedback for two people that have not been chosen. The team leader will be responsible for providing one positive and one area they can work on based on the results of the presentation. My students already know how the Nearpod presentations work, so I will use a few days to teach them how to run the presentation. I will review the presentation's results, and I will use these results to guide my instruction for the next day.
Here is an example of some of the slides that the students will see for the first lesson:
These slides were created in Microsoft Publisher, and then I snipped the document and saved them as pictures.
The slide above is a video from Show Me. I recorded the video on my iPad. Then, I went to www.showme.com on my computer and downloaded the video. I then inserted the video to my Nearpod presentation.
The first slide above is part of a quiz. After they take the quiz, I (or the student leader) can share their results. Every student is getting automatic feedback.
This is what the results look like from my iPad as I (or the student leader) run the presentation. I can see everyone's results at once.
Here is one of the videos I uploaded to the presentation.
I will begin teaching this group how to be a team leader this week, so it is going to be another week or so before I get this up and running, but I will let everyone know how it goes!! Wish us luck!
**Unfortunately, I am only a Silver Member of Nearpod, so I don't have a way to save my presentations. Our school is looking into getting a school account. Then, I will be able to share my presentations with other Nearpod Gold Members. If not, I have an AWESOME parent who volunteered to purchase a Gold membership for me!! I know, I know. . . I am one lucky girl! :)
Flipped Classroom in 2nd grade . . . total SUCCESS!! The kids LOVED it! I wish I would have recorded their faces as they were working through the presentations. Their smiles were priceless!!
1. Instead of having the student leader give feedback, I am going to have the group come together and discuss what they learned. They will have questions to guide them. Hopefully this will help them learn from each other as much as they learned from the presentation.
2. Once they exit out of the Nearpod Student app, their work goes away on the teacher presentation. They can log back in and their work will reappear, but that makes it difficult for me to look through the presentations at the end of the day. Even though I can get a report of correct answers, I like to see exactly what they wrote on the "Draw It' slides. As soon as they meet with me, I will look through the presentation with them as a quick review and to set the stage for what we will discuss.
3. They didn't need very much guidance on how to run the presentations. I showed them all one time and they took off with it!
After a week of using the modified flipped classroom during my math groups, ALL the students in this group passed the Common Core assessment at the end of the week! Not only did they pass, but they were able to show knowledge of the standards on a third grade level!! So proud of them!!
