A Few of My Favorite Things

First off - Teachers Pay Teachers is have a one day sale! August 20th my store will be 20% off. Use the TPT Code, BOOST, at checkout for an additional 10% off. Check it out here.
School has started. We've been in session since July 31. Please don't feel sorry for me. I will be having a 2 week Fall Break in October. :) With school starting back up, I thought I would share some favorites that I like to use in my classroom.



Here are a few of my favorite activities from Teachers Pay Teachers.

1) My kids enjoy playing games. We play all types from partner games to whole class games. Here are some of our favorites:

SKUNK by Ashlee Gray - This is probably my students' favorite game of all time.

Order of Operations Game by The Enlightened Elephant - I project this on the whiteboard, and we play as a class.

Math Flips by Misty Miller- We play this game in partners.

2) My students enjoy coloring! Yes, many 7th and 8th graders enjoy coloring. :)


3) We enjoy using foldables for note taking.

4) Task Cards!! They are so versatile. I can individualize work, do board races, use them as game cards, use them around the room, etc.
