Whole Numbers for 6th Grade Review

Whole Numbers Bell Work

I have been working on making my warm-ups available and now the first two series are up! Weekly Bell Work: Whole Numbers (Freebie) and Weekly Bell Work: Whole Numbers Word Problem Edition. These two series are part of many more to come!

They both are extremely useful with a particular focus on Whole Numbers using Addition and Subtraction. I will be completing my sixth grade warm-ups prior to releasing seventh and eighth grade.

However, you can stay informed by following me on Pinterest, Blogger or TpT!

Ratios & Unit Rates Bell Work

Since the above release of my first two units in the 6th Grade Bell Work Set, I have finished with a very fun warm-up revolving around Ratios and Unit Rates. It is one of my personal favorite units because ratios are vital to understanding proportions, similarity and not to mention fractions!  One of the many goals with these warm-ups is to grab your students attention and get them thinking immediately when class starts.  My Bell Work is fast, fun and engaging. It takes the teacher out of the center of the room and allows for them to complete daily tasks such as attendance, returning of graded materials and prepping for the activities to follow.  I always supply an answer key making reviewing seamless. My goal is to encourage high performance teaching with equally rigorous materials.

Middle School Math Mazes for 6th and 7th graders {FREEBIE}

Why Math Mazes? Well, did I mention they are FREE <rofl>… but seriously, these Math Mazes can make a big impact depending on their usage.  I love them to continue learning in a fast, quick and almost painless way.  These are perfect for a refresher of covered material or as a way to introduce topics, vocabulary and content!  
Each Math Maze contains between 8-10 questions and students will work through a maze to complete the activity.  Plus, they fit into a 6th or 7th grade classroom seamlessly! Each Math Maze focuses on a different concept and you can access them at my TpT Store:  Types of Angles andTypes of Polygons.
I know you will find these Math Mazes useful and so will your students. Below is an example from the Types of Angles edition which focuses on the differences between Complementary (two angles with a sum of 90 degrees), Supplementary (two angles with a sum of 180 degrees), Adjacent (two angles that share a vertex) and Vertical angles (two angles that are equivalent…

Hop into #SpringSavings

This spring has been flourishing in more than one way! My Facebook page has been growing and it is with many thanks to people visiting my blog, TpT page and becoming followers of my small teacherprenueur business.  I have started to really look forward to the next year and half as that is my projected return to school date. My  youngest will be 3 shortly and my oldest is going to be going to VPK full-time! I have already started preparing what my classroom theme will be and I am so excited to reveal "pieces" of my Neon Dots Décor. This décor unit will be primarily for middle school math as many normal pieces of Décor packages are lacking what the typical math class requires. 
This sneak peak will highlight a few of my classroom "pieces"
1st: 2-d and 3-d Shapes This set is so valuable during your Geometry Unit. My incoming 7th graders find it so hard to understand that there are MORE than just the basic 3-d shapes they are comfortable working with such as rectangul…

Winter is Here!

October and November (almost to the end) has come and gone! Where did the last two months go?  I remember, they have been filled with diy Dinosaur Costume attire and Thanksgiving menu prep <rofl>  It has for sure been a good Fall but I am really looking forward to cooler weather, camp fires and Christmas Lights.  We just got ours up and the twinkling glow is already filling my heart with positive vibes.

On to the real business of things.  I am hear to shout to the moon and back, that kids love Christmas Holidays. You know, the excitement and childlike behavior that fills your middle school classroom with chaos and shenanigans. Each day ends with a countdown of when you are released as well!  Turn all that negative energy into positive ones with Winter Themed Activities that are not only fun but challenging for your Math classes!

I am a huge advocate of Winter Break material. I teach at a Title 1 school, which means I have many students that are of low economic status. I large …
