This year has been a struggle for me to teach math in a way that it hasn't been before. I really felt like I lost my math groove. What I realized on Friday was that I had been holding myself to a program too strictly. When I followed the prescribed lesson, but put my twist on it, things started to click and I was so happy and sad that I didn't figure it out earlier. Now that we are on a roll, I want to keep the momentum going and finish strong at the end of the year.
Here are some photos of the foldables we made this week. I am sorry about the picture quality on some of them. It was the best photo I could get.
|This is what I wanted the students page to look like in their notebook. The two vocabulary words are Frayer Models folded in half so we could fir more than one on a page|
This is the simple foldable that we did for the first day. The students filled in the example part of the foldable the rest was typed in for them.
