June 2016 Pick 3

Whoever said that teachers have summer off must not really know any teachers.  Here I am, just one week into summer, and I am already looking at things that I know I am going to have to do for my new group of students!!  I don't know exactly what I'm doing as I am moving to middle school math, but I thought that this would be a great place to start!  I'm excited to be linking up for June Pick 3!

Finding new ideas to use in my classroom is something i love!  I LOVE summer for being able to do this!

Figuring out the question when you know the answer is a great way to get students using problem solving skills and thinking outside the box

I love this idea from Elementary AMC!  I can't wait to come up with so many different answers and see what my students can come up with next year.  I need to figure out how I am going to do this, since I will have six classes of students instead of just one.  Maybe I could have six different boards instead?  Give the kids a few days to figure out the question instead of just one day?  Then I could have six different questions up at once and rotate them through?  Or I could have the same answers up and see if we can come up with that many different questions!

I love this number problem!  What a fun way to have students use multiple numbers and different ways to reach the same solution!  I can't wait to create these different number cards this summer to match my room decor!!  Thanks for the great idea Fun Games 4 Learning!

I LOVE this idea from Marcy!! I can't wait to make some Kaboom sticks for multiplication facts for my students!!  This will be a great game for them to play in small groups and to continue to practice their facts!

  1. I'm so excited for you! I loved middle school- the most important thing that I needed to remember was that they are still kids, just bigger! There was so little prep work compared to teaching elementary- an added bonus! Your pins will be perfect to use next year. I pinned your Kaboom pin to check out later! Thanks for sharing and linking up with us! :)
