My math classes are 75 minutes long. Right now, our routine is the Do Now, a whole class lesson, classwork, and an exit ticket. This is the routine that I will likely be following throughout my student teaching. One thing that I am finding difficult is figuring out how to structure the practice. Because we have about 40 minutes for classwork, kids can usually get through about 2 activities. My mentor uses a system where we check kids off when they finish a worksheet and they get another worksheet. The issue is that some kids don't raise their hands when they are ready to be moved on so they are sitting in their seat wasting a lot of time when a teacher doesn't notice. The other issue is that kids do not get the second worksheet when they need it because we are busy with other students. In my future classroom, I might want to have the whole class work on an activity or worksheet, have a quick discussion as a class, and do something else. But I want to stick with the routine in our classroom this semester. Is there a different way to structure this chunk of time that would require less direction from the teacher?
