Using Microlectures and Quick Shares to Reach Students with Short Attention Spans

Most of my 5th graders have a hard time focusing on any sort of lecture for longer than about two minutes. With this in mind, I use microlectures to share important information with my class. Listen to episode 12 of The 5-Minute MishMash to learn more. Also in this episode: “Fact and Opinion” song, the real definition of rectangles, tour the states and world, and the power of pair share series part 6. 

The 5-Minute MishMash is offering free Rockin’ the Standards songs for anyone who writes a review on iTunes. This is a limited time offer. After your review posts, send a tweet @5MinMishMash and let me know.
