Under Construction! (Math Wall!)

Do teachers ever stop? Ha! No they don't. At the beginning of summer I'm thinking about how much I miss my kiddos and what a fantastic year we had. Don't get me wrong, I'm also relaxing, hanging out in my yoga pants, and taking mental breaks from school. But as summer winds down I get so excited for the next year! It's so good to recharge, reflect, gain perspective, and prep new ideas for a whole new group of students! We just can't quit can we?!? And August is right around the corner!

One thing I have been working on and preparing in my math is my Math Wall for 6th Grader's. I have all of my math vocabulary terms color-coded and coordinating with my "I Can" Statements and Concept Cards (these give students a snapshot of the day). I'm seriously soooo excited about this. Sometimes I feel before I teach a unit a print up all of these things but this year they actually look nice and cohesive. PLUS I love the colors & I created editable templates. I am organizing these by standards in my files and on my word wall as well. This new addition is going to be such a great tool throughout the year! I can hardly wait!

I just posted these up in my teacherspayteachers shop (you can check everything out here)! I copy these off for my students binders and we use these as math terms are presented. We build our own reference pages and pack these babies with definitions, examples of how to solve problems, what formulas mean, and so much more. It's a great resource that my students work on themselves--so the value is increased and they actually use them. These reference pages are free so grab yourself a set to use with your kiddos!
