August SLANTbox Sign Ups Are now Open!

Straight NO Chaser!

I have been rocking some tourist time with one of my very good friends lately.  We have explored parts of the Twin Cities that I did not know existed.  As I prepare for back to school I am also seeing all of these wonderful things about my hometown.   This month we will be sharing something about our home towns. 

  • PICTURE books. (I know RamonaReccomends will like this one)
  • Coffee Mugs with your home town on it. 
  • T-shirts
  • Make a mixed tape (or cd what ever) of music from your home town.  (Hello Prince!  SouL Asylum! and that band that sang FunkyTown!
  • Sports teams <---Be careful with this one...some people are die hard (enter town here) fans
When you sign up you will notice there is a spot for state that you live in (International friends just put your city), This is so I do not match a St. Paul Educator with another St. Paul Educator. 

Sign ups will be open until July 30 (THAT IS A WEDNESDAY YALL!!).  I will promptly make matches THURSDAY the 31th.  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.  You will have until Sunday the 3rd 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 will do rematches on the 4th of August. 

As always the boxes go out around the 25th of 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…
