Drum Roll Please.....September SLANT box sign ups are open

Hey Y'all

I had a mini panic this morning about not being able to get everything done, especially blogging.  I think I am going to designate time on Sundays, bang out 7 posts, and set them to post by them selves!  UNLESS I have something super important to tell you...Like right now!

That is right folks.

The September sign ups for the SLANT BOX exchange have opened!  I had a ton of fun getting to know my partners and as I am getting ready to send out my box to my partner I am thrilled to share with you the theme for the month of SEPTEMBER.

BUT FIRST... I want to share how I came up with it...and the rest of the themes for the upcoming months (they are by no means final).  As you know there is a question on the form you fill out for suggestions, the theme for September won fair and flipping square!  I had almost 25 people suggest it so I went with it goes.....

OH MY GOD I FORGOT (blank)  

Basically the idea is to get to know your partners classroom or philosophy of teaching. Then create, find, dream up some goodies to fit right in, perhaps something they could not have got because of location, or time. Maybe it is a super cute coffee mug in the shape of a hooting owl, or a chevron covered stylus pen, or a lanyard that is super sparkly! Or perhaps it is a book on differentiation that you could not teach with out! If you do not have a classroom because you are a teacher candidate, sub, on a cart, coach, or an administrator don't worry. You are still welcome to join. Think about things that you might have forgotten to prepare for in your current position. The idea behind me choosing this theme was that it did not seem like it would be to hard to come up with items, especially with it being many of our first weeks back to school. If you do not have a blog, make sure you show your partner pictures of your room in social media or through email!

Now I know that many of us are posting some awesome before and after pictures of our classrooms so I can not wait to see what y'all are going to come up with.

There will be some new rules with the matchings so be on the look out for those.


HERE IS THE SIGN UP!!!!! Same rules there. You have till the 3rd of the month. You can always use the tab at the top of my blog too. PLEASE tell your friends let's see if we can beat the number that signed up last month. ALSO, EVERYONE who is involved in education is invited to join. I mean that sincerely.

Have fun, See you around the SLANT BOX world!

I need to go to bed now~

  3. Hi Jameson!

    Quick question- when I signed up for the SLANT box, it stated that I will receive a response e-mail on the 5th of the month. Does the box need to be mailed out the 3rd of September or October? Thanks!!! Looking forward to doing this!!! :)

    1. for the sake of example I am going to use this month: I will send out your partner by the September 5th. You will then spend the next few weeks getting to know your partner, and create a box that they will love. By September 20th you will send out this box (unless something comes up and the date is changed but it should always be right around the 20th). Then if you have a blog, you will link up your reveals!

      hope that answered your questions

    2. Thanks Jameson! I sent you a message on IG. I have to withdraw my application for the month of September. I already submitted it a few days ago and realized that it was not the best move this month. Is there any way you could remove my application? Thanks so much!!! :) Hope you're feeling better!!!! xo

Back To School First Day Activity Idea

Hi there!  I have been slacking on the blogging lately.  When summer started I was upset that I was not going to be teaching summer school, and that I had to drop out of Grad School for a while (Due to some REALLY ridiculous issues at a different school not allowing my transcripts to get set over...Long story really.), but I have actually been INCREDIBLY busy this whole summer. 

I wanted to do a quick share for an activity that you can do on the first day of school and how I used it last year! (I wish I had pictures!!! That is going to be one of my goals this upcoming school year is to take more pictures in my room, of my products.  I think it is actually going to become a classroom job!!!)
So here it is I posted this last year about this time but it works so well.  I have it as a freebie in my TPT store. You can click the picture or HERE to download.  
This is what I did last year and will do again this year on the first day of school.  I took pictures of all of my students on the fi…

Creating Ratio Posters

This was a really fun project that I did with my 7th graders when we were working on ratios, Rates and proportions that I never got a chance to post this past year, and I will not be teaching 7th grade again! (sort of sad...but not really.)
To introduce the topic we started with a review of ratios.  Below you will find the worksheet that went along with the project.  You can see this student was using her worksheet to help her think of a topic idea!!  LOVE!

She also was not very careful with her worksheet.  Sorry for the wrinkles.  As you can see the students had to pick a topic, draw or represent (i told them they could use stickers or glue objects to their poster) 20 objects, then on a second sheet of paper complete 10 questions relating to ratios from their poster and reflect.  Here is what this student came up with!

If you have had any questions about using art or projects in a math class here it is, Directly from the mouth (er, hand) of a student.  STUDENTS LOVE VISUAL PROJECTS …
