Math Resources for Thanksgiving

Math Classroom Decorations

I am so excited to show you my classroom!  This is the first time that I actually feel like my classroom is coming together very well.  Last school year I was 8 months pregnant and wasn't in the mood to decorate my classroom at all!  This year I researched a lot on Pinterest and found some pretty cool ideas.  I have incorporated these ideas in my classroom.  Check out my pictures below!

Math Classroom
The agenda, standard, objective, and homework are posted on the whiteboard every day.

Math Classroom
I have colored paper around my classroom to catch student's eyes.

Math Classroom
I used painters tape that I bought from Wal-Mart.  The lettering is from Hobby Lobby.  I love the organization!

Math Classroom
Students always know what they are going to be doing for the day!

Math Classroom
I post starter sentences around the classroom in colored paper.

Math Classroom
I LOVE my date!!! Last year I always wrote it on the board.  I bought this from Target and I absolutely love how easy it is to change the date!  Also, I can use it year after year!!!

Math Classroom
I love my hanging folders.  There is an emergency sub folder, fire drill folder, discipline folder, class roster folder, and seating chart folder.  This keeps me extremely organized!

Math Classroom
I bought these bathroom passes from Hobby Lobby.

Math Classroom
I post my students' grades by id number so that they are informed of their current grade and any missing assignments.

Math Classroom
I always make sure to keep my daughter's close to me even at work!

Math Classroom
That's my husband!!! I couldn't have decorated my classroom without him!

Math Classroom
I will be hanging up little cars with student pictures on them throughout the year.  I am going to hang up some colleges and roads showing which college's my students are going to attend.

Math Classroom
Students love my wanted sign! I purchased it from Professor Toys.

Math Classroom
I love my "What stuck with you?"  I saw this idea online and knew that it would be perfect in my classroom!

Math Classroom
More starter sentences!

Math Classroom
This is the coolest idea and I am so glad that I saw it on Pinterest!

Math Classroom
I laminated my sign after putting post-its representing my seating chart.  I have my students in rows (1-6).  My students know exactly where to put their post-it by their seating chart.  For example, a student in my student row and very front of the classroom is in Row 3 Seat 1.  They would put their post-it over the laminated number.

Math Classroom
I read the post-its to see what my students' learned for the day.

Math Classroom
This poster allows me to get instant feedback!

Math Classroom
I LOVE how I organized my materials.  I bought this organizer at Lowes.

Math Classroom
High School students are glued to their cell phones!  They are always asking to charge their cell phones in my classroom.  I got tired of being asked by students so I have placed signs by my outlets.  It has worked wonders!

Math Classroom
I have the math practices posted in the back of the classroom.

Math Classroom
I have students look at the calendars in the back of the classroom to see what they missed if they were absent.

I hope that my classroom pictures have given you some ideas on how you can organize your classroom.  Having an organized classroom makes a HUGE difference.  Please let me know if you have any questions or have some great ways that you decorate your own classroom!

Mitosis Puzzle Activity

I decided to complete my Mitosis puzzle activity with help from my husband :)














Conclusion: This was a great activity!  My husband even enjoyed the activity.  You can have students work individually or in pairs.  It is a great hands on activity.  After students finish gluing down the puzzle pieces, they will reflect upon their learning.

You can purchase this activity at my Teachers Pay Teachers account by CLICKING HERE.  In addition, if you do not have a Teachers Pay Teachers account, then you can purchase the activity from my store by CLICKING HERE.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mitosis and Meiosis Foldable

I am so excited to show you a mitosis and meiosis wheel foldable that I created for interactive notebooks!  The nice thing is that you don't necessary have to use them in interactive notebooks.  They can be used as handheld studying tools or placed in the notebooks.  The mitosis wheel has three different versions: (1) prometaphase is included, (2) prometaphase is not included, and (3) blank template.  The blank template allows you to have students write in information.  This is great for differentiation!  You can purchase the mitosis or meiosis separately or as a bundle.  I have included the link of the bundle but you can find the others in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

Two-Step Equations Hidden Message Activity / Worksheet

I have just finished a puzzle activity on two-step equations.  This is a fun activity that your students will love!



Students will be solving 20 problems on two-step equations.



After solving the problems, students will cut out the boxes and glue them onto the other page according to their solution.


This is a great activity that can be given individually or in groups of 2-4.



In addition, it is self-assessing in two ways: (1) students know that if they don't see their solution on the page then they need to check their answer and (2) after placing their boxes down, there is a hidden message. If they do not see the message, then they know that they made a mistake. This activity can take 1-2 days (1 day if you are on block schedule and 2 days if you are not on block schedule).
