How to Take Math Video Notes!

I’ve officially survived my first full week of school.  I am not sure if other teachers enjoy this portion of the school year, but I really do.  Most of my students are eager to learn, try new things, and impress their new teacher.  What’s even crazier is that I *kinda* enjoy teaching and practicing routines.  I love watching my students evolve into these independent little creatures!  I’m also very particular and they seem to love to strive to meet my expectations at this point of the school year. Last week we practiced taking video notes for our Flipped Classroom.  I’ll… View Post

Ten Simple & Easy Ways to Differentiate

When planning lessons, I always ask myself, “Are all of my kids doing the same thing?”  If that answer is yes, then I am not differentiating appropriately.  It’s kinda of a nerdy passion of mine to maximize differentiation.  That being said, my room is not differentiated 100% of the time.  There are times when time restrictions or difficulty of a particular skill that we are not doing different things; however, I try to challenge myself to maximize my differentiation!  Here is a list of my top ten favorite or frequently used ways that I differentiate.

Summer Stock Up!

Please tell me I’m not alone in the fact that I have been planning, creating, and blog-stalking since school let out.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve relaxed a little too!  My husband and I have watched all three seasons on Netflix of American Horror Story and the new season of OITNB!  I also just finished reading “Leaving Time” by Jodi Picoult….AMAZING!  ๐Ÿ™‚  But when I’m not being lazy, I’ve been busy planning away for next year.  I’ve also gathered up a few of my favorite blog friends to help us out by sharing a few freebies, giveaways, sales, and fabulous… View Post

Solve & Turn FREEBIE!

I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for new games to engage my students and practice various skills.  Several months ago, I had a last minute schedule change and needed a random little time filler.  My best ideas come to me when I am not planning ahead and am flying by the seat of my pants.  Anyone else feel the same?  Well, on this random day, I made up a game that my kids LOVED!  Earlier this week, one of my kids asked why we hadn’t played that game in a while.  To be honest, I had… View Post

Favorite Surveys {FREEBIE}

This week, we concluded our unit on graphing and I wanted to do a quick, yet fun way to review the parts of a graph, translating data gathered into charts, as well as reading their data in various ways.  To do this, I created a fun freebie to share with you! My kids started this activity by creating their own survey.  I gave them four topics to choose from {favorite subject, treat, season, or animal}.  From there, they were able to pick four options for their classmates to choose from.  After their choices were made, I had all of my… View Post
