FREE Math Station Planning Guide

 

Looking for a quick tool to help manage your math station prep work? 
Using math stations in the classroom is an excellent way to engage students and review skills at the same time. In fact, once organized, math stations can become a classroom routine that organizes and manages itself.

 

This station planning guide can be used to determine which stations will be used, what task to include for each, and what materials are needed. This tool can be kept with your lesson plans for the week so that you have it as a reference during weekly planning.

Product Description
Free Classroom Rules Poster and Instructions

It sounds very idealistic to say this, but it’s true. From personal experience, I assure you that simplifying your rules will simplify your life.

At the beginning of the school year, when it’s time to introduce the class rules I show students this poster and read the three words. Then, using the Socratic method of questioning I go through the rules one by one and discuss the implications of those rules (which is the reason you don’t need many.)

Spelling Flip Book

 

Product Description

The Spelling Flip Book is designed to help young learners become familiar with spelling rules and to incorporate them into their work.

Students can color and personalize their flip books to enhance the spelling learning experience.

I always like encouraging my students to use their flip books as reference sheets when they are working to promote good spelling habits. The goal is that eventually, by using the flip book when working, the student will begin to remember common errors made in the past and correct them. I have had much success with this strategy in my classes.

I’ve also included a color copy and an answer key – a total of 18 pages.

Free Boneyard Numbers Game

Looking for a fun game involving dominoes and the order of operations? 
Have you ever used dominoes in your classroom? Dominoes are one of those versatile tools
that have many purposes. Dominoes are generally not a standard math tool, but
they are great to have laying around. If you don’t have any in your classroom,
you can pick-up a cheap set at the dollar store.
The activity I am sharing with you today is called “Boneyard Numbers.” The basic idea is
that students turn over two dominoes and use the quantities on the dominoes to create
a number sentence that targets one of the uncovered quantities on the game
board.
 
The best thing about this activity is that it can be adapted to meet the needs of all
students! Whether a student just adds everything together or goes out on a limb
and tries to use all of the operations, the activity can meet his or her
ability level. “Boneyard Numbers” makes a great station and fast finisher
activity.

I use the class money for job payment and positive reinforcement. The kiddos love it when I give money for exemplary behavior. And it will set a positive tone in the classroom. Students will take ownership in the classroom. Every minute in the classroom counts!

Free Open-Ended Questions for Accountable Math Talk

Looking for questions to support students during math talk? 
Questioning is one of the most powerful instructional strategies we can use in the classroom! In fact, NCTM’s Principles to Actions (2014) states that effective teachers use “purposeful questions to assess and advance students’ reasoning and sense-making about important mathematical ideas and relationships” (p. 35). However, creating an environment where students are able to respond to questions and effectively use math talk during a classroom discussion can be challenging. Many of our students do not know how to discuss their mathematical ideas and strategies using key math vocabulary and concepts. As teachers, we play an important role as we help students identify their thinking processes and build new knowledge by connecting to ideas and concepts that they already understand. Choosing the right questions is an essential part of this process. Read more about using questions and building effective math talk practices here.

Birthday Certificates, Books, and Brag Bracelets

Birthday Certificates, Books, and Brag Bracelets

Give your students birthday, moving away, or you are special booklets/cards from the class. There are cute birthday bracelets and matching cards/certificates from you! The birthday booklets/cards are a way to make a child feel special. There are colored and black & white copies. I give this out usually for the morning bellwork or during a transition.

As a bonus, for students moving away, this will give your remaining students closure with the student leaving. It will help the student that is leaving feel special. You can use the “You Are Special” booklets/cards for Kindness Week.
