Subject: The Quiet Game in 5th Grade

Children at this age can become quite competitive. I try to foster cooperation as often as possible. All too often it's the English language learner that does not get listened to. Despite their understanding of the Mathematical concept, it is usually the the most verbally fluent that will take command of the group's direction. "The Quiet Game" gave these students new recognition, pride and confidence. Thank You!
