June/July SLANTbox reveal

What a fun month of SLANTboxes!  The theme this month was Sunshine and the idea was to fill a box of stuff that is related to the sun, summer, or smiles really!

This month I was paired with the newly engaged Lindsey from Thriving in Third to send to and Alissa Straus from Fun In Fifth to receive from.  Both women were super.  I got to know Lindsey EXTRA well when she redesigned this awesome blog!  

So here it is with the reveals!

I had to run a TON of errands yesterday that included dropping the dog out off at the vet for his comprehensive (he is all good y'all), going to the Good-Will, Tuesday Morning, and Jo-Ann Fabrics.  When we got home this was sitting on my porch!  YAY! 

Alissa did a great job of decorating the outside to make me excited about opening it (like I wasn't already excited. 

So, Alissa posted this on IG but I am posting it now too...I love the fact that you have to "unwrap it"  I did not do that with Lindsey's this month...oops. 

Take the bubbles off and this is what I found!

Her hand made card is sooooooooo stinking cute.   You need to put this in the next box!  My little cousins go to VT so it was a cute card to get.

And here are my goodies.  So many fun things.  Lots of pencils for my students to win, a super cute little stripped notebook that Alissa put an anchor on with her silhouette!  GLITTER! <---seriously who does not love glitter! glowsticks, notecards post-it notes, two sheets of yellow vinyl for MY NEW silhouette!

But on to my favorites:
The cute little custom cup!  She used her Silhouette machine to put an anchor on this and also Miss. Ivey!

These great little Punch Cards for having Great Math Skills.  I think I am going to use them with some of my lowest students to help with motivation.  I am really going to try and differentiate this year.  If I have students who can not add multi-digit numbers, why am I asking them to MULTIPLY multi-digit numbers.  I think something like this with a big reward for making SERIOUS growth would be beneficial to both them and me as a teacher!

Here is a close up of the cute little notebook!

AND THE BEST!  SKITTLES!  Taste the rainbow y'all!

Can't wait to see what you got.  Link up below!  REMEMBER if you are a blogger it is part of the requirements that you blog about it.  Please make your link to the post where you blogged about it!

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 …
