NEW Frayer Model

I want desperately to post about my ISN's which are going smashingly with both my 6th graders and my 7th graders!

But I do not have pictures or anything yet....I will get on that ASAP.  


I want to share today about my Frayer Model dilemma and solution.

I love FM's.  They rock my vocabulary world.  What I did not love was the "non example" section.  Often I could think of a non example but had a hard time verbalizing it to students.  OR if I let them come up with a "non example" they almost always had a miss conception about the word.  So I changed it to PROVE IT/DRAW IT.

This has worked SO MUCH BETTER than it did last year.  It really helps my kiddos who are struggling with the abstract thoughts and put's it very concretely, pictorially and allows them that kinesthetic avenue of modeling and drawing it out. 

SO I wanted to share it with you.

Here is a picture of what it looks like:

You can download them here: PROVE IT FRAYER MODEL PPT
UPDATE...this link does not work for what ever reason.  If you would like this please email me with FM in the subject line and I am happy to share!  Thanks Lisa for letting me know.  :)

If you want it to be like I have where students fill in the blank just add a text box over what ever you want and start typing. 


The kids love it because that is a "marker time" piece.  I am very cognizant of when they are allowed to use markers and when they are not.  I tell them if I am using black or grey on the smart board, they are using pencil, if I have it in color on the board, they may use color in their notebook.

I am so stinking excited to get my life organized and share these wonderful tools for you!  Until then, enjoy my FM's

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 …

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…
