Who's ready to Fold it Up?!

Fold it up for students to reference when practicing order of operations.

Just a quick post to share a "Fold it Up" to use in interactive journals (which are relatively new for me). We used our first Fold it Up today, for order of operations. I made the PEMDAS Fold it Up last night, to match the anchor chart I made for my room.

I created the inside with Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally on the left, dotted lines for students to cut, and then partial notes on the right-hand side. The front was left blank, for students to create their own PEMDAS lettering and title, as below:

 Problem on the chart is the same  as one on the Fold it Up.
We'll do some order of operations practice with my Order of Operations Footloose activity, which you can download from my freebies page or for free from TpT.

I made a Fold it Up for properties too (Commutative, Associative, Distributive)....will post that one in a day or two.

Happy Tuesday!

Love to Doodle (and a freedbie)

Exponents Color by Number For most of my school life as a student (and even as an adult, during PD), I have really liked doodling! During lectures, would help me focus, but also give me something to make me look busy, so I wouldn't get called on in class! I always hated being called on and almost never participated voluntarily:) I liked to draw cubes, rectangles, squiggly lines, etc, and color in different parts of the doodles. Download this freebie:-) I really wanted to make some color by number activities. Since I am not good at creating actual pictures, I decided to make my color by numbers similar to my random drawing/doodling. My Exponent Color by Number is most similar to my past doodles, but I thought it was a little too random, so I started using actual shapes. The Integer Operations Color by Number (freebie), as well as most of my other color by numbers are more structured, but so much fun for me to make! Computerized doodling! Anyone else

Math Class - First Day Activity

Rectangle of pentominoes Many 6th graders seem to have a pretty negative attitude about math, so I try to do something interesting to "grab" them during our first class. Last year, during the first math class, we spent part of the period working with pentominoes. Before working with the pentominoes, however, we played a name game so we could learn each others' names (I find it impossible to start anything else if I don't know some names, and fortunately, I learn them fairly quickly). rectangle outline For the activity, I divided the students into groups of 3 or 4. The directions for the activity were not complicated - the task was to make a rectangle, using all of the pentominoes. I gave students an outline of the rectangle, as pictured to the left, so they would know the correct size of the rectangle. The squares in the grid are each one inch. The rectangle is 5 squares (inches) wide and 13 inches long (13 inches includes the row that has the "Pent
