Workin' On It Wednesday 3/12

I've been working on more ratio resources!
Over the weekend, I worked on creating more Fold it Ups, specifically for ratios this week, but others for the rest of the year as well. This particular Fold it Up reinforces terms we have discussed (ratio, equivalent ratios, rates, and unit rates) and then adds the ideas of proportions and cross products.

The Fold it Up should be cut on the horizontal lines on the left-hand side. Those sections are folded over, and the vocabulary terms can be written on the outside by the students....mine's not so decorated...the kids usually decorate better than I do:)
The other picture below shows the Fold it Up with the notes filled in.

I've become frustrated with the idea of having students staple or glue these Fold it Ups into their spiral notebooks or putting them into a pocket...somehow some students end up losing them (usually the students that most need these notes). Other students have filled up their spiral notebooks and started new ones, so they either have to remove the Fold it Ups from the original notebook or carry both notebooks.  Poor planning on my part, I guess.

So, what I'm working on now is combining all my Fold it Ups and notes into one document that I will print and have bound, starting next year. Our district does bind books for us....not a spiral will be difficult for the pages to get ripped out and lost.

What is your most effective way to keep notes like these in your students' possession?

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
