Teaching Expressions and Equations {Grade 7}

Are you getting ready to teach Expressions and Equations to your students?

If you said YES, there are lots of different ways that you can approach the subject in a meaningful way to bring your students' conceptual knowledge to mastery. My favorites ways to introduce the concept of Expressions and Equations are with Card Sort Activity Lessons. I first give the pre-assessment, then do the Card Sort activity with the class. (I save the assessment data for data meetings or conferences). The Card Sort activities are cut & paste. The students have to figure out how the pieces go together, if something is missing that they have to conclude to solve, and then prove to the teacher (me) how they solved the problems. After a successful Card Sort Activity Lesson, the extension activity can be used to further learning or just end with the Post Assessment to see what the students learned from the activity. This is a great way to assess and engage ALL students in your classroom!

The next activity that gets students thinking is their Interactive Notebook activities. Laying the groundwork for what are expressions and equations? Having the students interact with the concepts and write about it in their notebooks. Practicing and applying is a big piece of what Interactive Math Notebooks are about. Students are creating and showing their knowledge of the concepts in their Notebooks and building upon prior Math knowledge.

Then after some time going over the concepts, use the Math Stations activity as reinforcement for the Math and review for those who have mastered the concepts. It's easy to help keep the students on task with the 7 different station cards by using groups of 2-4 students. Simply PRINT & GO! These Math stations are easy to implement and facilitate in the classroom. Students LOVE Math stations and keep them busy and engaged the entire time. This usually takes 1-2 days to complete depending on the schedule. Math Stations are great to have students practice the Math and extend their learning.

This math station activity is intended to help students understand how to apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions. Students will use variables to represent quantities in a real-world mathematical problem, construct simple equations, and solve word problems leading to equations and compare algebraic solutions.

Included are:
-7 different stations to engage students
-Teacher facilitated activity for 60-90 minutes of classroom time
-Stations include:
1. Vocabulary
2. Technology (Need classroom computers & internet access to ixl.com)
3. Practice of Expressions & Equations
4. Additional Practice of Expressions & Equations
5. Real World applications of Expressions & Equations
6. Word problems of Expressions & Equations
7. Teacher Station
-Student Station Guide helps students record their answers
-Blank Student Station Guide for students to record their answers
-Student Station Guide helps students record their answers
-ALL ANSWER KEYS included


These interactive notebook activities are intended to help students understand how to apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions. Students will use variables to represent quantities in a real-world mathematical problem, construct simple equations, and solve word problems leading to equations and compare algebraic solutions.

Included are:
-4 different Expressions & Equations activities to engage students
-Teacher facilitated activity for 60-90 minutes of classroom time
-Activities include: Vocabulary, Simplifying Algebraic Expressions, Solving One-Step Equations and Solving Two-Step Equations
-Examples of Completed Interactive Math Notebook Activities are included


This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions, and understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related.
Included in this lesson are:
-one formative assessment (pre-test) task
-card sort activity with concept development of variables and expressions
-one extension activity for students to deepen their conception of expressions
-one summative assessment (post-test) task
-answer keys for all the assessments and activities
-how the lesson is tied to common core and mathematical practices

I hope these activities for Expressions and Equations are helpful in your classroom too. Remember to keep your students at the center of your lessons and watch them shine!

Happy Teaching!

October Interactive Math Notebook Activities for Kindergarten



My son absolutely loves his Interactive Notebook. We do lots of fun and engaging activities in the journal to interact with the concepts. We go back and review from the previous day what we learned and I ask him to repeat his answers to me as a summative assessment of his work. Here are some of the questions I ask him:
-How many does the (person/thing) have?
-Count to this number.
-Which is the greater number?
-Which is the smaller number?
-Which one is more?
-Which one is less?
-Tell me one thing you know from this page.
-What did you learn today?

If he's not quite sure we review it again the next and pull out an additional activity with that standard. There are over 50 pages of October Math in this packet. Helping students review, practice, and apply math concepts is key in building number sense skills. This packet is to help your students become more fluent in number sense with numbers 0-9. You can easily adapt this to any math journal or math interactive notebook already established. Your students will be engaged and learning which will help them retain the information for test time. You can easily facilitate this every day or a couple days a week during October. All your students will need is a glue stick, pencil, and scissors. Simply print in black and white or color and have them apply their number base ten skills. I know this can be a success in your classroom too!

October WRITE THE ROOM with Math {Grade 6}


Are you looking for fun October writing?

Would you like to incorporate writing in your Math Stations?

If you said YES, there is a new resource to help your students read and write Math more! This is one of my favorites for October. 


Get students moving, talking, and writing Math Vocabulary in your classroom with this set of 6th Grade 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. This NO PREP Write the Room vocabulary activity can be a success in your classroom too!      

Included are:
-Directions for setting up
-List of vocabulary words
-2 sets of scaffolded Math vocabulary sentences
-2 sets of Math vocabulary sentences in Color and Black & White for easy printing
-Rubric for EASY grading!
-HIGH QUALITY GRAPHICS included
-Student papers
-6th Grade CCSS aligned
-Monthly Theme of October {Halloween}

This writing activity can be one week or one month long. To keep the writing all month long I recommend the 1st week having the students write the sentences with the words in them, the 2nd week have the students use the scaffolded sentences and figure out from key Math words what the vocabulary terms are, and then weeks 3 & 4 have the students write their own sentences with the Math vocabulary terms. Learning how to WRITE the Math is one strategy for becoming a more fluent and successful Mathematician. Practicing this skill is important and I have a bundle for the whole year if you would like to get your students writing more Math! Click HERE to view and download the Year-Long Bundle!

Happy Teaching!
