I have to say when I first saw Coach B talk about the Smarty and Doofus strategy... I didn't think it would work for me. First of all I haven't started Prove It in my classroom yet. I thought I would at least wait until I had introduced that! However, I was losing my kids attention FAST during a rounding lesson today so I went for the Smarty and Doofus plan!
WOW! This was amazing. My kids were having a BLAST explaining how to round with sockless hand puppets! I will post more details about this later... but I had to share right away! I may not have done it correctly ... but this just goes to show... the goofier... or should I say DOOFIER the more excited your kids get!
