My project for the summer has been to make an interactive math notebook for the year. When I taught science, I used it the notebook all the time and LOVED it. Last year was my first year teaching 6th grade math and I didn't really start using the notebook until November. We set it up the first week of school, but then it would be a thing we would get out every once in a while. I really missed having one consistently.
I want it to be truly interactive as well. Something students can use throughout the year to study, add to, revisit. I also want to incorporate more journaling in it.
So these are the pages I've created so far for our first unit--The Rational Number System. Use these pages as inspiration to create your own. Or you can buy individual pages or the BUNDLE at my Tpt store. (I'm having a sale from 7/29 to 7/31)
|The first page will be a VENN DIAGRAM that the students will add to as they learn about the different types of numbers|
|Whole Number, Natural Numbers and Integers|
|Fractions As Division|
|Absolute Value and Opposite Numbers|
Ice cream Cone and Ice Cream flip up and explain why each type of number can be written as a fraction
|Ordering and Comparing Rational Numbers|
I've left various pages blank to add in practice that we'll do at in small groups.
One of those pages will be for this activity made by my new co-worker. It is an awesome Rational Number Sort.
