I am "Flipping" out

The Flipped Classroom approach to teaching

The flipped classroom-

Rethink traditional teaching.  Flip your instruction.  Do homework in class and instruction at HOME.

I did this with my first lesson in multiplication.  I did not have to teach the students at all in class.  We spent the whole time practicing the new concept. 

You can use the same concept to instruct on different levels.  Students can watch your lessons and learn at their own pace or practice a concept they have yet to understand. Check out my prezi.  The first slide shows how I flipped my class for the lesson on repeated addition to multiplication.
