Math Snapshots includes 6 questions for 40 different skills. There are 2 skills on each page. These are great for a quick assessment, test prep, review, stations, warm ups, or exit tickets.

You can download a free sample of Math Snapshots here.

I also like to get them active again. Many of my students will have spent their 2 weeks sitting around playing video games or texting. One way is to play a game with math problems - have board races, math relays, trashketball, scoot, or musical chairs.

I'm going to jumpstart my students by setting up our 2nd semester interactive notebooks and by having us make commitment cards like the movie "When The Game Stands Tall". Here's more about it: http://j.mp/1tDNcSe

The commitment cards are such a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

DeleteRevisiting expectations, starting Romeo and Juliet!

ReplyDeleteI will definitely need to revisit my expectations with my 7th graders. It feels like I do that all year long. Have fun with Romeo and Juliet! Happy New Year!

DeleteI will be reteaching expectations for our school wide PBIS, and handing out lots of PBIS tickets when I catch kids doing good things. In language arts we will jump into poetry, and in math we will be going back to multiplication (I don't understand why my math book starts the year with multiplication and divison, goes into other topics, and then spends another 3 topics on multiplication and then 3 more topics on division. Seems I wish that the multiplication and division units were all together instead of divided.

ReplyDeleteIt does seem they would put it together. That is the beauty of my job - I can teach whatever math skills I need to teach whenever I want to teach them. Happy New Year!!

DeleteI will review expectations.

ReplyDeleteI will review expectations and remind the students they have two weeks left in the semester to improve grades.
