Geometry Word Wall Cards and EQ Posters!

Now that Thanksgiving is over I am wrapping up my Geometry unit and moving onto... Measurement!  Both units are so much fun here at the holidays!  There are so many ways to have Christmas fun with nonstandard and standard units of measurement!!!   I plan to make some goodies to share with you all so please keep posted!!!   I also wanted to share with you these Geometry word wall cards and essential question posters.  I placed the EQ cards on my board and the vocabulary cards on the Math Word Wall.  They were great for my formal observation (so glad that is over!!!) My kids really used the word wall cards when we made our shape booklets and wrote about our angle photographs that we took around the school!  I hope you can use them.  Thanks so much!-Yvonne :)

Christmas Freebie!

Hi dear friends!  Just spent the day in a CCGPS Language Arts roll-out class and wanted to come home and do something fun!  I thought it would be great to modify my "Toy Factory...Time!" Christmas Math Center for younger kiddos in K-1 who are working on telling time to the hour and half hour!  I just downloaded it if you want to check it out!  I have been crazy busy these past couple of days getting ready for my formal Class Keys Observation!  It is on Monday and I am going to teach Geometry!  If anyone has any amazing ideas for me between now and this weekend on plane shapes and angles...please jot me a note!  Gotta fill those buckets you know!!!  I've had a blast searching blogs and getting ideas!  Thanks so much and have a great week!-Yvonne
