June/July SLANTbox Sign Ups Are OPEN

Tell your mamma!  Tell your friends!

OK I had a super crazy end of the year with going to Mexico, my dad getting sick, running 3 5k's, oh...and teaching.  My students were actually decent for my sub when I had one for 8 days, and they did not drive me to want to pull my hair out.  

Thanks to all my teachers friends who continued to follow me on IG.  It is so much easier to just give a quick update.

ANY WAY, the real reason you are probably here...I know It is ok.  I see those diagnostics, anytime there is something with the word SLANTbox in the title my views instantly SKY ROCKET!

OK here is what I am thinking:

I love summer, and since we have a 2 month weekend here I am saying that we are going to have a 2 month SLANTbox!  This is an easy one, and because I KNOW just how hard it is to stay caught up with emails (especially over the summer), I am going with "sunshine" basically make it something that any teacher would LOVE to open on a sunny day.

  • YELLOW items
  • items with the word SUN in them (sunglasses, sunscreen)
  • Find some puns (SUN-body loves you)
  • If you get to know your partner well enough, take some photos of you and your family enjoying the sun
  • beachy things
THis time around...because I am sorry but I just did not get to making the sign ups.... I am going to leave the sign ups open until the 22 of JUNE (THAT IS A SUNDAY YALL!!).  I will promptly make matches on the 23rd.  I WILL NOT BE DOING LATE ENTRIES...Please tell everyone you know that it is open and sign up soon so you do not forget.  I would like to have a summer this year. You will have until THURSDAY the 26th to let me know if you have not exchanged - meaning both of you have responded (SEND EMAILS TO BOTH OF YOUR PARTNERS, or RESPOND TO THE EMAIL YOUR PARTNERS HAVE SENT TO YOU!!!).  I have a wedding that I am in the weekend of the 26th so I will not be doing re-matches until JUNE 30.

WE WILL BE SENDING OUR June/July Boxes around the 25th of July.  I promise I will be more on the ball for August.

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…
