### Algebra Interactive Notebook Starter

I have decided to give my Algebra interactive notebook starter as a freebie! This helps set up or start your students interactive notebooks. It will help keep your students organized and informed on how they will be graded.

Starter includes:

- Classroom Rules
- Notebook Expectations
- Reflection
- Setting Goals
- Look Back at Goals

Here's some pictures!

Do you love my notebook starter and want to purchase my Algebra notebook? The Algebra notebook is an entire years worth of Algebra concepts. There are a total of 10 units that include:

Unit 1 - An introduction to Algebra concepts
Unit 2 - Equations and Inequalities
Unit 3 - Functions
Unit 4 - Sequences (Arithmetic and Geometric)
Unit 5 - Linear Equations
Unit 6 - Exponents (Powers)
Unit 7 - Systems of Equations and Inequalities
Unit 8 - Polynomials

There are two pages for each concept. The first page is used for direct instruction (notes) and the second page is for students to practice the concept. The first page includes a "I can..." statement and the second page includes an area where students can rate themselves on how well they understand the concept. This allows students to look back in their interactive notebook before a test and know which concept they need to study. There are some pages that have foldables.

I also have a Pre-Algebra interactive notebook that has the same template as my Algebra interactive notebook. There are a total of 8 units that include:

1.) Intro to Pre-Algebra
2.) Factors and Multiples
3.) Operations of Rational Numbers
4.) Rates, Ratios, & Proportions
5.) Algebraic Equations
6.) Exponents
7.) Geometry
8.) Statistics

### 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).
