Since I'm quite obsessed with Kagan strategies I thought that this would be so perfect as a Mix-Pair-Share. The beauty of Kagan is that you teach the strategy once and can use it for any lesson/subject after that. I'm a huge fan and have included the steps from Mrs. Rio's blog.
I've used Mix-Pair-Share for years and the children LOVE it because they get the opportunity to get out of their seat to learn. It also entails music and communication, which seems to always put everyone in the best of moods (especially those Chatty Kathys!)
