So, for several years I have been working on improving my “Math Wall”. I first started with store bought posters and then decided that even though they were big and pretty, they didn’t necessarily focus on “how” I taught my students a particular concept. Then, I decided to change things up when I found these awesome math cards online. I ended up breaking them up by concept and this is a picture of what my math wall looked last year.
Sorry it’s so small. I wanted to get a picture with ALL the boards. I DID like this and was able to refer to it during my instruction. However, I still felt like my students needed more. I have begun taking the skills we have been working on and creating my own math skill cards. I’m hoping that by adding the definition AND an example, my students will have a stronger tool to refer to.
Here are a few examples of what I have come up with.
The whole file I plan to create (based on IL’s Common Core Standards) will have about 50 pages. But, until then, feel free to download and let me know what you think!
