– Rubber/place mats placed around the room
– Could use A3 sheets of paper
How It Works
Using rubber mats (known as placemats), place them randomly on the floor of your classroom starting from the door.
As students enter the class, ask students to find their way to their seat without touching the floor- but by only jumping across the mats.
Aim: great way to get them focused.
– Differentiated for active learning: as a student lands on certain colours, have a question above the mat, that allows them to think about their previous learning/ today’s LO’s/ general THUNKS.
– Differentiated for ability: Have different routes for the different abilities allowing for the route and therefore the questions to get harder (great way to challenge the G&T).
