A visual tool to organize and keep track of expectations for different tasks. Tasks are divided into four categories: independent, partners, teams/groups, and whole group.
Directions: Print learning mat out in color, then laminate. Place in a visual spot in the classroom. Print the stars out in color, laminate and attach to clothespins. Whenever you are working on a task, clip a star on the correct type of learning. For example, if students are working in partners, clip a star in the “partner” quadrant of the map.
