These Math Boxes assess for understanding of the
Red Starred items in each lesson of the Every Day Math curriculum.
These “Recognizing Student Achievement” points are used as an ongoing assessment throughout the unit.
I do Math Boxes every Friday, or after every four lessons in math. Math Boxes help me check to make sure my students understand the starred item in each lesson, before a unit test is given. It really helps me see what needs to be retaught before the assessments, or when a small group is needed to help a group of students who need extra practice on a certain skill.
