I always love hidden mystery messages because it keeps my students engaged and excited to reveal the hidden message. This activity is wonderful for students in groups of 3. Each group will have a "Student A", "Student B", and "Student C".

Each student will solve their own page that includes 7 problems on slope (determine slope given two points). They will cut out the 7 hexagons and glue them onto the "Hidden Message Page" according to their solution.

Once all 3 students finish, there will be a message revealed. The message will read "2020 IS HERE!!"

This activity is great for self-assessment. In addition, students will working together and seeing the hidden message revealed!

I recommend printing "Student A", "Student B", and "Student C" on different colored paper. It makes it super easy to grade, and it helps students distinguish between their own hexagons.

__Interactive Number Line Activity__
This resource includes a pdf that contains my interactive number line and christmas borders.

There are many ways that you can use my interactive number lines. I purchased a 22" x 28" poster board and taped my number lines on it. I laminated the poster and placed velcro sticky back circles on the ornaments so that the number line is interactive!

This resource can be used in math centers! You can also make multiple of these posters and place them around the classroom.

Place students in groups and let them determine where to place the fractions on the number line!

You can also print more borders and make a larger bulletin board or door banner! So many options!

# Plotting Points in the Coordinate Plane Snowflake Activity (Graphing Points in the Coordinate System)

## Thursday, November 28, 2019

If you're like me, I love holiday themed activities! I wanted to create a fun winter activity that involved placing students in groups. And here it is!

Students will be plotting points in the coordinate plane. You will need to place students in groups of 4 to complete this activity. There are 4 pages for each group: Partner A, Partner B, Partner C, and Partner D. Each student will plot the given points and connect them with a ruler.

They will color the resulting image. Each student will cut out their graph and place it together with their group members to form a snowflake.

Each group will need markers, colored pencils, or crayons (light blue, dark blue, and purple), rulers, glue, and scissors.

After students construct the snowflake, hang them up on your bulletin board! Check out my video below!

How many times have you had student's finish an assignment or test, and ended up being too loud? We always tell our students that they need to pull out a book, sit their silently, or etc. But honestly, it is often hard for me to sit quietly for a certain amount of time! So I had an idea about creating something fun but still math related that would be engaging to my students. Voila!

I always loved word searches, crossword puzzles, coloring by number, and critical thinking problems. Hence, I decided to take these activities and place them together on a page with 3 activities on each page.

Students will love finding the math words in the word searches, coloring the provided images, and thinking about how to solve the tricky word problems!

You can also use the Middle School Math Early Finishers as a warm-up, homework, or activity! The file comes with 32 pages (64 including answer key). The concepts range from 6th grade math to 8th grade math. These include:

1.) Multiplication of integers

2.) Adding and subtracting fractions

3.) Multiplying and dividing fractions

4.) Operations on fractions

5.) Order of operations

6.) Simplifying absolute value

7.) The real number system

8.) Square roots and cube roots

9.) Exponent properties

10.) Percent of change

11.) Simple interest

12.) Balance

13.) Solving one-step equations

14.) Solving two-step equations

15.) Combining like terms

16.) Solving one-step inequalities

17.) Area of two-dimensional figures

18.) Similar figures

19.) Scale factoring

20.) Transformations (Reflection, rotation, translation, dilation)

21.) Slope-intercept form

22.) Types of slope

23.) Volume with unit cubes

24.) Surface area

25.) Area and circumference of a circle

26.) The coordinate system

27.) Systems of equations

28.) Volume of three-dimensional objects

29.) The Pythagorean Theorem

30.) Probability of an Event 1

31.) Probability of an Event 2

32.) Statistics

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!
