Check out this Formative: https://goformative.com/formatives/aJ45Xif7htsij36kk
I like to start my 4th grade Social Studies classes with thinking routines like See, Think, Wonder. I created this very basic Formative with an image of a Native American ritual dance and added prompts for the students to record their answers.
Previously, I had students share their thinking out loud but it was always the same 5 or 6 students sharing. Now, students feel more comfortable sharing their thinking because no one besides me will see it if they don’t want. We still share out loud but I have found that the recording of answers creates more participation.
I use thinking routines in math as well and have found Formatives to be much more engaging in that subject as well!
