How I Use It
TTM is amazing!
We started using it last year for morning work. Every lesson students passed I gave them (virtual) starts and they kept wanting more and more. They would even compete with each other.
I also set up a goal for a pizza party, (500,000 points) and students started donating. For every 1000 that they donated toward the goal they would get a sticker in an index card with their name on it, by the time they reached 10 stickers they would get access to my prize box and pick something they wanted. So this got them pumped up, and every morning they tried to get more and more points so they could donate toward the pizza party, and of course get a prize with all their stickers.
I love everything about TTM: They have a pre-quiz, guided instruction, individual practice, and post quiz to make sure students understand the lesson. My favorite part is they have TTM teachers, that means that if students do not understand something they can request a TTM teacher who will explain them how to do something and they even ask students if "it makes sense" which is what math is about!
