Hands down. No contest.
My 7th grade math students this year...overall...not so much.
They tend to need kinesthetic links to their learning.
Meanwhile I try to strengthen their visual side.
Some of my attempts are major.
Other attempts seem quite minor in the grand scheme of things.
Here's a sample activty from my MATHercise this week. We were working on angle relationships. I created this Build a Snowman Game to review complements and supplements. My students said the placemat was very helpful...love the visual tool this adds!
We also worked on this writing prompt in our Journal Entry tub.
And this Stopwatch Skills was adapted from here.
And a Sudoku from here for our Mind Workout.
Next week we will start our assessment cycle. We should be ready to tie things together and show what we know! We will play the Roll an Angle Pair Game to review special angles formed by parallel lines cut by a transversal. I need to grade my competency quiz from today so I know who to place in small group on Tuesday.
They spied the angle dice on my desk today. Everyone wanted to know if that was the next game! :)
