I will be going to work tomorrow to set up my new room. I always get excited to think about what I will put on my bulletin boards. I know most teachers think of that last, but that's my first thought. I think I try to avoid the rest of the work. ;)
So....I am going to use my Key Words Math Sort to use as a bulletin board. I later use it for a station activity to review math vocabulary.
When I decide to change up my bulletin board, I use the words in a station sort activity. I don't use all the words at once since it can be overwhelming with so many.
Afterward, I use it as part of my word wall during the year
I use math journals in my classroom. My goal for their journal is to be a resource they use throughout the year, and it must have just as much (if not more) of their writing in it as print out/notes I give them. Key words, like context clues, help us to make sense of these tricky word problems. We add these words to our journals and we continue to add words we encounter later in the year as well.
