Anticipation Guides in Numbers

In reading, anticipation guides are used before a lesson or unit to activate prior knowledge and possibly check for prerequisite understandings. I encourage you to consider using anticipation guides in mathematics as well. And, to promote student goal setting and reflection, utilize them at the close of a lesson or unit as well.

I used Numbers to organize a set of anticipation guides for various topics, denoted by the name of each sheet. Imagine students responding with yet or not yet, adding annotations with drawings and reflecting with audio recordings. I am sharing sample anticipation guides for Kindergarten, Grade 4, and Algebra I.

What other ways can anticipation guides be used by your students?
