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!

Differentiation and the Brain - Introduction

It's summer-time and time to get some reading done! Myself and my Tools for Teaching Teens collaborators are going to read and review Differentiation and the Brain, How Neuroscience Supports the Learner-Friendly Classroom , by David A. Sousa and Carol Ann Tomlinson.We will each be reviewing different chapters, and those blog posts will be linked together as we go. If you're interested in learning more about this book, check back and follow the links to the different chapters:) I'm going to give a quick review of the book introduction here, and then later today I'll be reviewing Chapter 1. According to the authors, differentiation is brain-friendly and brain-compatible! They describe the rise, fall, and rise of differentiation, starting with the one-room schoolhouses, where teachers taught all subjects to all students, of all ages, and HAD to differentiate - there was no other way! As the country's population grew, public schools grew, and students were separat

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
