Chris does a great job incorporating routines, using creativity, and having students think outside the box. He encourages them to not only think of their learning but their peers as well. He sets high expectations and leaves no room for getting off topic.

I really like the way Chris makes the class feel safe and comfortable.  He does this by calling students by the playing card number rather than the name.   He makes the class feel like they are all in the concept together and no one is alone.  The use of the PLAYLIST is a creative way that draws interest for this age group.  The PLAYLIST allows students to be familiar with a routine during day to day lessons.

What I love about Chris's teaching, is that he takes time to recognize and encourage every student.  He does this through his playlist, randomly calling on students by using the playing cards, being heard, the think tank, and group work.  His transitions are seamless and his timing is perfect.  Chris is always asking questions about why and how is this like that or how is this different from this.  His students create formulas and yet it feels like a game. Chris must put in hours of work to prepare for a lesson because it looks like it's natural and easy.

Mr. McCloud uses a playlist method to conduct the classroom routine. The playing cards method he uses makes it okay to be called on instead of embarrassing the child. He also makes it easy for the students points to be validated. He is very good a transferring context as well as his planning of the use of the tools that he and the students used. Mr. McCloud keeps his tools very organized.
