This SMART Notebook file includes three sample POD Class openers. Each class opener includes a pre-formatted four problem POD page and five student blank worksheets for Monday-Friday completion.
The three samples include a grades 1-3 math set. A grades 4-8 math set and a grades 4-8 English set.
The math set for grades 1-3 includes a numeric pattern problem, a coin problem, a basic word problem and a time (clock) problem.
The math set for grades 4-8 includes a numeric sequence problem, a roman numeral problem, a word problem and a fraction problem.
The English set includes an analogies question, a verbal skills question, a vocab builder question and a punctuation question.
Each of these can be edited for your classroom.
These class openers provide a transition between subjects, time for teachers to take role, check homework, pass out materials, etc...
The original set was designed during a SMART Board Training workshop I conducted two years ago. I have since fine tuned the material. However, the teachers who assisted with the original design are still using these POD Class Openers daily in their classrooms.
