TIPS!
  • Make Content Literacy a priority!!!

Vocabulary, Writing, Reading

  • Take it slow—Don’t try to implement everything at one time!!
  • Make sure what you choose to do has a purpose and is meaningful!!
  • Make vocabulary an everyday part of your classroom—Not just one special day of the week or month.
  • If you want students to write in math, you have to teach them how to do so!

        • Vocabulary Notecards
        • Vocabulary Activity

***Use Everyday in Math DISCUSSIONS!***

*** Use in writing!! ***

word examples
Word Examples
  • Prime--- a number with two factors
  • Composite– a number with more than 2 factors
  • Distributive Property– a ( b + c) – ab + ac
  • Rational Number- a number that can be written as a fraction
vocabulary activities

  • Crossword Puzzles
  • Word Scrambles (Example)
  • Fictional Stories (Guidelines/Differentiate)

DIVISIBILITY

1 MATH

1 HOUSE

2 DIVIDE

3 WHOLE NUMBERS

5 REMAINDER ZERO

8 WHEN THE LAST DIGIT IS EVEN

5 THEN DIVIDE BY TWO

3 THE ANSWER

2 SHOULD BE

1 A

1 WHOLE

four circles
Four Circles
  • Give a list of vocabulary words, and four circles. Students must group the words into the four circles and give each circle a title!

Words:

Variable Variable Expression Sum Product Quotient Difference Evaluate Integers

Rational Irrational Distributive Terminating Decimal Repeating Decimals Absolute Value

Opposites Natural Constant Term Coefficient Whole Additive Inverse

Commutative Associative

vocabulary games
VOCABULARY GAMES!
  • NAME THAT VOCABULARY WORD
  • TABOO– WITH MATH WORDS!
  • I HAVE--- WHO HAS
  • BINGO

writing guidelines according to matkovich

  • Math Story (Given as HW Day 1)
  • Team Journal (Interdisciplinary Journal)
  • Lesson Summaries
team journal
TEAM JOURNAL
  • About one every 1 ½ to 2 weeks
  • They are checked for completion-but not collected and actually graded
  • Have groups read their journals to each other, and pick the best one to share
  • Randomly pick students to read (popsicle sticks)
  • Have group contest—which group uses the most vocabulary words.

  • Suzy just moved to our school from Washington. She needs you to explain how to complete the following problem. Do not leave out one step or she will be lost:

2 ½ ÷ ¾

journal entry 2
Journal Entry #2
  • Pretend you are a division sign. Tell me about a typical day for a division sign. Try to include 15 vocabulary words from the word wall.
  • Describe the difference between an expression and an equation.
