    This has been a fun week in the series. I always love to see glimpses into classrooms and to hear well-known authors talking about work in classrooms. I agree with “I found that when I can show people video of what the stations look like in operation, it makes the picture of stations even clearer” in this video. I always love the combination of book explanations with pictures, figures, appendices, but actually seeing it is another great supplement.

    In this video I also appreciated the thinking aloud about instructional decisions that are based on the exact context of the day. I just read and loved Kassia Wedekind’s Math Exchanges, it seems like her book and the two math videos from this week all contribute to great professional conversations about math.

    I second Mrs. V.’s comment about hearing the thinking and reflecting that goes into the station in order to modify and make improvements.

    I also appreciate the visual that a station does not have to be an over-the-top work of art. Manipulatives, writing implements and a buddy are all one needs. I think many teachers are overwhelmed when it comes to stations because they think it has to take a huge chunk of classroom space or are only for the artisically inclined.
