December WRITE THE ROOM with Math - Grades 6, 7, 8

I love incorporating Math vocabulary into almost any Middle School Math Class. WHY? It's all for the student growth that teachers see when students put together concepts and vocabulary terms. That is FANTASTIC! I encourage you to check into my Math Vocabulary resources to help your students make connections in Math and TALK about Math more with the correct terms. When students TALK more about the Math, they are making connections, and mastering KEY math concepts.

This month I have created a set of vocabulary packets for Middle School students to work with their vocabulary with a holiday theme. Each packet contains grade level specific vocabulary. Check out the previews to see what words are in each grade level activity.


 
 
Get students moving, talking, and writing Math Vocabulary in your classroom with any of these sets of Math Vocabulary Sentences. The purpose of this resource is to help students with increasing their mathematics vocabulary. Students write the Math sentences on their paper with scaffolded practice. Students are provided a list of vocabulary words to use to complete the sentences. Students will be engaged and more confident practicing using math vocabulary.
 
I hope these NO PREP Write the Room vocabulary activities can be a success in your classroom too! It's a great way to bring in cheer and rigor during this busy holiday season.

It's December, my favorite time of year, when all the students and teachers cheer the holidays are ALMOST HERE! It's also the time of year when I'm sick, so if you're like me and would like some fun Math activities to give your students during this busy time of year I have solution for you!

This is a fun and engaging packet full of math review for Middle school students. These Christmas Holiday activities are centered on an ELF theme. Each activity is engaging, using HIGH QUALITY graphics, word problems, puzzles, or just fun review for students.

There are 5 different activities as listed above. Each activity has an ELF theme. Included are Math activities with operations with rational numbers, operations with percents and decimals, operations with rates and time, operations with time, and operations with integers. All of these activites are a great review for any Middle School Math student for the holidays.

All of the worksheets have an answer key included. Also I have aligned these activities to fit with Common Core Benchmarks that you may be covering or reviewing for each grade level 6, 7, and 8.
