Today is my last day of summer break.
We have Institute Day tomorrow
and the kids come on Wednesday.
I should be finishing up my plans,
but I needed a break so I'm here typing this post.
My district is starting the math CCSS this year.
One thing we are all expected to have is
a math vocabulary board.
Here is a picture of mine.
It's not the best pictures, but you get the idea.
Last year I learned a trick from another teacher,
use a glue gun.
I hot glued all the letters so there are no staples.
Also, all the edges will stay flat on the board.
As we learn new words, I will be putting them up on the board.
I want my kids to keep using the words,
so I created some math vocabulary review
activities for them.
Each card has four words
and the kids need to figure out which word
doesn't belong and tell us why.
I did this last year and the kids saw it as a game
and not math review.
The great part is there can be more
than one answer.
Most of the cards were created with a specific
answer in mind, but any answer works
as long as the kids give a logical reason.
Another review activity I made is
Again, I used these often last year.
I usually copied them back to back,
so we completed two questions.
They are quick reviews and
it gives the kids a chance to use
their math vocab.
Both items are currently on sale.
Thank you to Krista Wallden for this cute button.
with your class?
