Questions about Planning Math for Grade 6

This year I really want to plan incorporating student choice and voice in my classroom. The only place I’m really stuck is Math.

In Math I really want to practice Problem Solving every day, do real world applications, and allow my students choice in how they learn and practice the math skills.

I thought about doing a task list of tasks the students can accomplish to show and practice their learning. Here is the idea below.

Also I wanted to do more self assessment and more accountability in their learning. So I created this.

This is a very rough idea but I would really appreciate your feedback.

    I am really liking your ideas here! I have been struggling with how best to plan math as well! Last year I incorporated some PBL activities and this did help offer students more choice and voice. We also incorporated peer coaching in math and I was pleasantly surprised by how engaged and empowered the students were. I am excited to see your ideas progress! I feel like we are trying very similar things! Thanks for sharing!
