SlantBox March


I am back, feeling a little better and have heard the requests.  SlantBox is back.  I will not be participating this month for several reasons, ONE my district is set to most likely go on strike, meaning I will have no paycheck for who knows how long, and two, it is incredibly difficult for me to do right now.  I still have to get a box for November out that never made it due to me getting severely sick.  :o  None-The-Less, the March sign ups for the SLANTbox exchange have opened!  

So as I prepare to send out my box to my NOVEMBER partner I am thrilled to share with you the theme for the month of March. (it is amazing how important your health is.)  And if you missed a month, it is never too late to send your box to someone who you failed.  In fact, it would probably make their day more than the regular box would. 


Here we go!  The theme for March is......

Lucky To Be Teaching!!!! 

Ok. If you read my post yesterday you can see that my life, health, and job were put on hold for a little bit! The idea behind this months theme is to think of things that you are so lucky to have. Think green, think Irish, think LUCK! Perhaps it is a PD book that you could not live with out, perhaps it is something that you stumbled across and boy has it made your life easier. 

Let's face it, we are all lucky to have jobs, have careers in a profession that is so rewarding. And who doesn't like green and gold things?
In previous months I have tried to match people up with someone that they have not been paired with. I am starting over. I was also very lenient on rematches. I am sorry I am going to be ugly on this one.  

IF YOU DO NOT READ THE DIRECTIONS, SIGN UP ON TIME OR CONTACT YOUR PARTNER IN TIME, I AM NOT GOING TO HELP YOU.
I do not want to be ugly but I am trying to hold on to my sanity.

SO PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR PARTICIPATION ON THE TAB AT THE TOP OF MY BLOG BEFORE YOU SIGN UP!!!!!!!

ANYWAY.

HERE IS THE SIGN UP!!!!! Same rules there. You have till the 3rd of the month (March 3rd, 2014) to sign up. You can always use the tab at the top of my blog too. ALSO, EVERYONE who is involved in education is invited to join. I mean that sincerely, student teachers, principals, coaches, classroom teachers, TA's and TOSA's are all welcome.

Have fun, See you around the SLANT BOX world!

I need to plan for my 8th graders tomorrow...ugh~

Cheers,
Jameson

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…
