Students need lots of practice in order to learn how to solve math problems on their own. My "Practice Pointers" are a great way for students to practice math concepts and be able to study before a test.

The Practice Pointers consist of a booklet that has 3 practice problems for each concept. The "1 pointer" is easiest, "2 pointer" is harder, and the "3 pointer" is the hardest.

Students will need scissors and glue (or stapler) in order to construct the Practice Pointers book.

There are 2 versions: (1) fill-in and (2) answer key. You can decide which version you would rather use.

You can decide if you would rather construct the book all at once, or as you go along with each number sense concept.

I like to print each concept on colored paper so that the page numbers pop and stand out.

The concepts include:

1.) Absolute Value

2.) Adding & Subtracting Integers on the Number Line

3.) Adding & Subtracting Fractions on the Number Line

4.) Adding & Subtracting Integers with Modeling (Visual Representation)

5.) Adding & Subtracting Integers

6.) Multiplying Integers

7.) Dividing Integers

8.) Least Common Multiple (LCM)

9.) Greatest Common Factor (GCF)

10.) Adding & Subtracting Fractions

11.) Multiplying Fractions

12.) Dividing Fractions

13.) Adding & Subtracting Decimals

14.) Multiplying Decimals

15.) Dividing Decimals

Students will be cutting and gluing 12 gumball machines according to their probability or likelihood of randomly choosing a gumball. There are 2 versions: (1) Black & white, and (2) Color.

These look great hang up around the classroom or on bulletin boards!

I am thrilled to announce that I am creating wheel foldables for 5th grade! My popular foldables were only available for 6th grade and up, but now I am adding 5th grade ones. My first 5th grade wheel foldable is on rounding decimals!

This foldable has four layers: (1) Cover, (2) Rounding to Tenths, (3) Rounding to Hundredths, and (4) Rounding to Thousandths.

There are also two versions: (1) answer key template and (2) fill-in template. This foldable is a great handheld study tool or can be glued into students' interactive notebooks.

In addition, students can personalize their wheel foldables by coloring them. If time is limited, print the wheel foldable on colored paper. Your students will love this!

I can't tell you how many times I have been asked by students "why" they are solving two-step equations by the procedure that we teach them (adding the opposite, and etc). I decided to make a balance beam activity that shows "why" we add the opposite.

Students will be solving 4 problems on two-step equations using visual representation with a balance.

They will need 4 coloring supplies (markers, colored pencils, or crayons). I like to use red for negatives, green for positives, brown for "x", and black to cancel out opposites.

There are 4 versions: (1) colored with boxes, (2) colored with no boxes, (3) black & white with boxes, and (4) black & white with no boxes. You can decide which version fits your classroom needs.

You can hang up on a bulletin board!

There are 2 pages for each concept. The first page introduces the concept and provides notes. The second page is "Your Turn" where students will perform practice problems, and demonstrate their newly acquired knowledge.

The completion dates for each unit is given below. Please note that these dates will give me enough time to complete each unit. If the units are completed before these dates, then they will be uploaded sooner.

If you are interested in purchasing my 5th grade math interactive notebook click HERE.

There are 2 versions: (1) fill-in, and (2) answer key. The flipbook goes over numeric form, expanded form, expanded notation, and word form.

I love the fill-in version because it will give students a certain form and they will have to determine the other forms. For example, for problem:

#1 - Students are given the numeric form and need to find the expanded form, expanded notation, and word form.

#2 - Students are given the expanded form and need to find the numeric form, expanded notation, and word form.

#3 - Students are given the expanded notation and need to find the numeric form, expanded form, and word form.

#4 - Students are given the word form and need to find the numeric form, expanded form, and expanded notation.

#5 - Students are given the numeric form and need to find the expanded form, expanded notation, and word form.

This makes it great practice for the students and they learn how easy it to to convert from all of the forms!

You can purchase my place value chart flipbook by clicking HERE.

I used the second version (color) and printed from my personal printer. The colors are so bright and pop!

I laminated the borders so that I can keep them looking great during the school year, and use them year after year.

There are 36 borders in total (9 bottom, 9 top, 9 left, and 9 right).

Each border has a various 7th grade math concept on it. You do not have to use all of the borders. You can also use them "reminders" in students math interactive notebooks.

For the size of the borders, there are 3 borders that fit on a 8.5" x 11" paper. If you want to increase the size, you can change your printer settings to make the borders larger by a certain percent.

Again, there are so many possibilities. You will love how colorful and useful these borders are. You can purchase these borders on TpT by clicking HERE or on my website by clicking "add to cart" below:

__Math Webquests!!!__
Oh my gosh! I am so excited to show you all my newest line of products!!! My newest line includes math webquests!!! Yes, webquests!!! My webquests are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING because they turn your classroom into a more student centered classroom! You will be amazed at how well organized my webquests are! Also, they are perfect whenever you have a sub, or need a day to grade papers or etc.

Right now, I have a growing bundle for my 8th grade math webquests. There will be a total of 10 webquests. Currently, 2 of the 10 webquests are completed. You will be able to download the 2 webquests right now, and the rest as they are completed:

(1) Irrationals vs Rationals

(2) Converting a Fraction into a Repeating Decimal, and Vice Versa

(3) Exponent Properties (COMPLETED)

(4) Slope Given a Graph, Table, or 2 Points (COMPLETED)

(5) Slope-Intercept Form

(6) Writing Linear Equations

(7) Systems of Equations

(8) Intro to Transformations

(9) Congruence

(10) Pythagorean Theorem

The webquests have a PDF file containing a student template and an answer key template. In addition, each concept will include a short quiz.

You can see an example of one of my free webquests by clicking HERE.

ALL WEBQUESTS WILL BE COMPLETED BY JULY 2019.

Why are my webquests worth every penny?

1.) I not only create the pdf for the student template and answer key, but I create ALL of the information and videos on the website! It is my own personal website so I am in charge of all the information posted on my site!

2.) Webquests are a great way to introduce information to students! It has been stated many times that children learn the most when they write down information. My webquests will help students retain information, and provide them with plenty of examples!

3.) The webquests are excellent to use when you have a sub! All of the answers for the student templates can be easily found on my website!

If I purchase now, how do I get the webquests?

After purchasing my growing bundle, you will look under "My Purchases" for any updates throughout the next weeks / month. You will find that the file will be updated with each webquest after it has been completed.
